Google Fit updated with breathing exercises and home screen widgets

That includes new Google Fit widgets that you can place on your home screen and use to quickly check your Heart Points, Move Minutes, and other daily stats. When manually adding a workout, you'll have the option of inputting the intensity of it to get more accurate Heart Points based on how hard you pushed yourself.

Lastly, a new Wear OS feature will walk you through a breathing exercise if you're feeling in need of a relaxing little break from whatever you're doing.

Google has announced some new features for its Google Fit app with Wear OS smartwatch owners set to get a new guided breathing app to help you battle those more stressful parts of the day.

Google Maps isn't the only Google app getting updated today, as Google Fit is also getting improved. Several months later Google is back with yet another update that adds some nifty features to the Android app.

Breathing exercises are popular on other wearables, so its no surprise to see them here.

Google's own fitness tracking app for Android, Google Fit, is getting a minor upgrade meant to improve the overall fitness tracking. This enables the app to analyze it more accurately and produce Heart Points (a reward for increasing your heart rate during exercise).

The new update is expected to roll out to smartphones and Wear OS devices this week. How do you find the app in terms of helping you meet your fitness goals?
