If there are New Year's resolutions, we can all come back, they are the ones that relate to your health. Google hopes you actually stick to these resolutions with Google Fit and its # GetFitWithGoogle campaign.
The main component of the new campaign is the upcoming 30-day challenge. From January 1, the challenge challenges you Heart Points from activities that you sign or track actively with Google Fit. The app gives encouragement during the month.
Google also collaborated with 36 influencers from nine countries to show how they get their Heart Points. You can use hashtag #GetFitWithGoogle on Instagram and YouTube to see how others approach 30-day challenge and offer your own tips.
You can sign up for the Google Fit 30-day challenge in the app. When you see the card for the challenge, press Learn More and then Log on to get a reminder for when the challenge begins.
Introduced with the Google Fit update over the summer, a heart point is Google's metric to assess how much exercise you get done. For example, cycling for 30 minutes net you 30 Heart Points. Any physical activity results in Heart Points, but stricter activities will give you more Heart Points.
The American Heart Association (AHA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) recommend that you hit 150 Heart Points each week. As such, Google's 30-day Google Fit challenge looks to achieve two things: get people to meet the suggested amount of weekly training and get more people to use the Google Fit and Heart Point system.
