Fitness monitoring has gotten stylish and fun with Google Fit's latest revamp. The website exudes more energy with its quirky sports illustrations, pop colors and preppy icons.
Prior to the redesign, the site featured an array of advance, convenient and well thought out exercise planning features. However, the all-white theme made the website look like a Calculus notebook filled with boring numbers, graphs, and charts that viewers do not want to study.
Now the website looks like a fitness planner. The sporty illustration gave a little intensity to the website. The colors and icons stirred a little excitement.
Google Fit is a diary for health enthusiasts where they can chronicle their walks, runs, leaps, swims, bikes, spikes and other physical activities. Diet and heart rate are also monitored against height, weight and age.
The Google Fit website may be synced with the user's smartphone app for an easy tally of health activities. It may also sync with a phone's fancy features, such as a heart rate monitor.
Those who want to make a serious commitment to healthy living may sign up at the website with their personal identification and biological details such as weight, height and similar metrics. Users may then set a fitness goal for the week and month. Every day, the user may update the app or the website of their accomplishments.
Meanwhile,Google and its parent company Alphabet have been working towards mobile in anticipation of the time when smartphones will be much more common than desktop computers.
Google is also pushing Material Design, its design aesthetic which it claims makes web and app interfaces more communicative.
