Google Fit's latest update makes it easier to view and add your health data

You can now add your health data stats to Google Fit without relying on third-party apps.

What you need to know

  • Google Fit has gained a new update which adds a new "Browse" tab.
  • The new tab gives quick access to your health data stats under six categories.
  • The update has also added "Material You" design elements to the app.

Google has rolled out a new update for the Fit app that allows you to browse your health and fitness stats from your connected apps in a single location, thanks to the new "Browse" tab.

The update is part of version 2.61 of the app, and it introduces a better way of managing your data than the previous iteration. The new Browse tab organizes your data into six categories: Activity, Body measurements, Vitals, Nutrition, Sleep, and Cycle tracking. The new interface makes it easier to access your health and fitness data in one of the best fitness apps for Android.

Prior to this change, you had to dig through the app's homepage in order to locate the right cards and tap the floating action button before you could log your sleep data or heart rate, for example. Now, if you want to find a specific type of data, you can use the Browse tab or the new search bar at the top of the updated app.

The new version of Fit also makes it easier to add data to the app than before. You can just head over to the Browse tab and then choose any category where you'd like to log your metrics. And unlike the previous version, where you'd rely on third-party app integration to add your data, you can now manually add plenty of information even without third-party apps. For example, you can add information about your body temperature, blood glucose, oxygen saturation, heart rate, and respiratory rate to your vitals within the app.

In addition, adding heart rate and respiratory rate is no longer limited to phones like the Google Pixel 5 with manual input now available on any device, as per Android Police. You can also log information about your hydration, calorie consumption, and more.

The new functionality is just the latest update for Google Fit after it recently added the capability for users to measure both their heart and respiratory rate using their smartphone camera. The app has also gained a makeover with Google's Material You elements for icons.

If you want to give it a try, you can download the latest version of Google Fit via the Play Store.

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . So you'
