To help you keep track of your exercise goals, Google has announced a new integration between Google Calendar and Google Fit. The change is behind the scenes and once it rolls out to everyone, you can track your exercising in Google Fit and it will automatically mark your time slot for exercising in Google Calendar as “done”. It is a nice and easy way to keep track of your exercise routine while making sure it is built into your daily schedule.
Goal tracking in Google Calendar is not new. It has been there since April of last year and allows you to track anything from exercise to reading time to learning a new language. The goals are quite handy actually and the app is smart enough to look at what is on your calendar and schedule that goal in a time period where you don’t have other activities. You can also tell it to set a time for the goal in the morning, afternoon or evening for even more refinement. Now, on your exercise goals, you can tie them in with Google Fit so when you complete an exercise there, it update Calendar automatically as the goal being complete.
