The wearable fitness app goes to play for the other team.

An inveterate fan of power pop, British invasion, garage rock, old school R&B, and one-hit wonders (among other things), disguised as a mild-mannered copy editor. Champion of truth and the serial comma.

The app, which until now had been the provenance strictly of Google wearables and Android mobile devices, now works with Apple devices running iOS 12 or later. (Google Fit will aggregate data from an Apple Watch, but the app itself will need to run on an iPad or iPhone, not the Watch.)
Various Apple Health applications such as Sleep Cycle, Headspace and Nike Run Club will now sync with Google Fit. That means users can chalk up Move Minutes and Heart Points as they move throughout their days, Google says, ideally becoming more mindful, sleeping better and getting more exercise.
