The latest announcement made by Google is of shutting down their web version of Google Fit on March 19; for focussing more on the developments of the smartphone and Wear OS versions of Google Fit.
Google mentioned in an official post
“ Google Fit is dedicated to coaching you to lead a healthier and more active lifestyle; and making healthy behavior changes easier to achieve. In the last year, we redesigned Google Fit with new activity goals based on the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization physical activity recommendations; added guided breathing and home screen widgets, and hosted a New Year 30-day challenge. As we continue to focus efforts on adding new capabilities that enhance the mobile and smartwatch Google Fit experience, we’ll be turning off this Google Fit Website on 19 March 2019. To keep tracking your activities and get coaching toward your health goals, install the Fit app on your Android phone or Wear OS smartwatch”.
On August 2018, Google updated the web version of Google Fit by adding advanced metrics, material theme, etc. Apart from these, Googe Fit displayed all the recent activities; as well the long term monthly status of the activities.
The web version of Google Fit also allowed the users to log their weight and various other activities; which were previously not recorded. This increased the overall functionality of Google fit.
Google promised to provide timely updates along with new features to the Android version and the Wear OS smartwatch version of its Google Fit app.
