Google introduced new monthly tasks for its Google Fit app, in time for your New Year's decision.
Thanks to the new update, users will be able to set new tasks for themselves every 30 days. They will also be able to collect more heart points and movement minutes.
The January goal allows users to increase their heart rates with more exercise. The more they push themselves, the more points they get.
Heart points are points that users can earn by making their heart beat faster. For every minute of moderate activity, users can dial a heart point.
“Get 150 cardiac points per week to comply with the recommendations of the American Heart Association (AHA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) on physical activity that reduce the risk of heart disease, improve sleep and improve overall mental well-being,” google.
The first task is not available until January 1, 2019. To register in advance, simply go to the Google Fit app.
Google even offers tips on how to get more heart points, for example:
- Sledding with your children and earn double points of the heart.
- Pass the snow blower and take the shovel. Extra points if you make the neighborhood yard too.
- If you find yourself on a mountain this winter, skiing and snowboarding are intense exercises that can earn you double the number of heart points.
Google says it also teamed up with 36 authorities from nine different countries. Users can subscribe to #GetFitWithGoogle on Instagram and YouTube to find out how others solve problems, or share their experiences.
