Google had been running its #TheCheckUp Event for a couple of weeks now. Finally, we got to see another leap for Google Fit.
Google stated that they intend to expand these amazing features to other Android Phones too. Here is what Google says about using mobile phones to track your wellbeing:
Mobile devices have become essential daily tools for people all over the world — from staying connected to taking pictures and accessing information. Thanks to sensors that are already built into smartphones — like your microphone, camera and accelerometer — these devices can also be helpful for daily health and wellness.
The Feature will be available by next month in Google Pixel phones and you could easily measure your heart rate and respiratory rate.
