By FonePaw | Oct 09 , 2018

Smartphones can play a huge part in keeping us healthy and fit. Self-help fitness apps have been steadily on the rise and now we can even use Apple's latest smartwatch as an ECG. Fitness apps help keep us aware of our daily activities using a range of sensors. The data can be used to help guide your lifestyle and become more aware of your fitness requirements.


Google released android fitness apps have been steadily on the rise.



We partnered with Fonehouse, a UK based mobile phone retailer to find out which Android fitness apps are the best.


Google Fit

It doesn't come as a shock that Google can build a great fitness app, it is shocking that its free though. Google Fit uses sensors to monitor and record your activity. It catches all the important data like Speed, elevation, route, and pace. It shows in real time and you can look back into your previous activity. It's great for running and general home fitness activities. Being free you would expect some form of in-app purchases or ads, not this time! Google is just helping to keep us healthy.
