Tracking your fitness and health just got easier if you use and Google’s Wear OS. The MyFitnessPal smartwatch app offers a way to keep track of your health stats, including calorie intake and gym gains. While this worked well, it has also been limited since you couldn’t edit or input your data directly on your wearable device. However, the latest app update changes things for the better.
In a recent , MyFitnessPal announced updates that will make tracking and logging easier on Wear OS. Now, users can track and log without pulling out their phones. When wearing compatible Android smartwatches, users will have access to new watch tiles and complications — which will give them the ability to log foods they eat regularly while keeping track of daily nutritional intake, like sugar, fiber, fats, calories and even hydration. Users will also be able to see a quick snapshot of their entire day right from their wrists.
While this feature isn’t entirely new to the MyFitnessPal app on smartwatches — Apple Watch users have had this option for a while — it’s good news that people using Wear OS have another way to track. Monitoring our health and wellness is important and can be easily neglected when we just don’t have the time. Any innovation, big or small, that makes keeping up with health stats easier is always a good move. Now if only they could figure out a way to burn and log calories without the exercise.
