Google Fit arrives on iOS, but Wear OS smartwatches and Apple Health still won't play nice

When Google rebooted its Fit app last year as part of a new wearable strategy, it brought a new design, streamlined stats, and Apple Watch-like fitness rings. But it was missing one important thing: iOS and Apple Health support. While Fit was technically available on the iPhone as part of the Wear OS app, it required a tethered Wear OS smartwatch to record anything. And any fitness data logged on the go wouldn’t sync with the Apple Health app.

Starting today, Google has announced it will be offering a standalone Fit app in the App Store for the first time. Unfortunately, however, it won’t bring much fitness harmony to anyone living in both worlds. While the Fit app itself will sync data whether you wear an Apple Watch or an LG watch, all of your steps and stats will still only reside in the Fit app unless you’re wearing an Apple Watch, with no simpatico with Apple Health for any Wear OS device.
