Here are some ideas to help you come up with a great fitness app that takes advantage of Google Fit.
Type of apps you could make
Control games or apps with data
Use the sensor data to control games in new ways. It could be anything from using sprint speed data in real time – to using accumulated data to affect game progress.
Visualise graphs & data better
Find clearer or more captivating ways to display people’s exercise data. Maybe it’s through clearer graphs, or just more artistic visualisations.
Turn exercise into a game
Think about the kind of exercise-based challenges and goals you might offer. Some could be just for fun, while others are aimed at serious athletes.
Make intelligent soundtracks
Create a soundtrack that corresponds to the user’s heart rate – and senses whether they’re doing a long run, short burst or winding down.
How could you encourage more people to share their fitness data with friends and family?
Make fitness stats more accurate
Use the sensors to build a more accurate and rounded fitness app that doesn’t just rely on manually-entered data.
Create an immersive experience
How about using things like heart rate data and running speed to change storylines or create new experiences?
Focus on specific groups
Your app could be aimed at people of certain ages, disabilities or fitness levels. For example, helping wheelchair rugby players up their game.
Think about niche sports
There are loads of sports without a dedicated app. Love bike polo and want to finesse your Detroit passes? Now’s your chance.
Be more social
You could make an app with better social or team elements. For example, make it easier for people to challenge someone – or even collaborate with others to achieve a fitness target.
