The latest version of Google Fit, which started rolling out yesterday to Android devices that have it installed, brings with it some fascinating recent features. These have been detailed by Google today.

First off, real-time stats are now supported, which means you can instantly see how you're doing in your runs, walks, and rides. Google Fit records information about your speed, route, pace, and elevation. All of these things are available at a glance while you're training.

If you have an Android Wear watch, you now also acquire support for strength training in Google Fit. Your smartwatch will automatically detect and count all of your sit-ups, push-ups, and squats. These will be added to your daily activity, all you need to do is start a daily challenge first.

Finally, Google Fit is now integrated with more apps and fitness trackers than ever. It can monitor your diet through MyFitnessPal, Fatsecret, Lifesum, or LoseIt. And sleep tracking can happen with Sleep as Android, the Xiaomi Mi Band and Mi Band 1S, Sony Smartband 2, or the Basis Peak. These recent integrations are going to be rolled out "in the coming days".
