First of all, it tracks activity automatically, it's going to start doing that.
So if I start running, like a lot of top fitness trackers, Fit will now notice when I start running, and it can be run over a couple of different apps.
So if I start doing this,
just start running in place, it's going to start recording this automatically.
Yeah, it just buzzed, so there you go.
And it started recording that I was running.
Google Fit can also record exercise like weightlifting.
So if you start strength training and hit start, and I just start doing any activity in here, like this It's going to know what weight lifting activity I was doing.
So if I stop, I can see that it said, are you doing a bicep curl?
And I was.
And it counts it at eight reps.
