Add Hydration Data

You can add hydration data to Google Fit by creating a data source and using the com.google.hydration data type. Each data point represents the volume, in liters, consumed by a user as part of a single drink. Use a float to specify volume. Note: The timestamp indicates when the drink was consumed. Because com.google.hydration is an instantaneous data type, the start and end time should be the same.

Creating a data source

Android

Use DataSource.Builder to create a new data source. For example, hydrationSource.

DataSource hydrationSource = new DataSource.Builder()
        .setDataType(DataType.TYPE_HYDRATION)
        .setStreamName("hydrationSource")
        ...
        .build();

REST

Call the REST API to create a new data source. For example, HydrationSource.

Adding Hydration Data

Android

This example shows you how to create a new data point, and add hydration data for a 0.3 liter drink of water, using your data source.

DataPoint hydration = DataPoint.create(hydrationSource);
hydration.setTimestamp(now.getMillis(), TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS);
hydration.getValue(FIELD_VOLUME).setFloatValues(0.3);

REST

This example shows you how to add hydration data using your data source.
