Google Fit and Apple Health Can Now Talk to Google Calendar to Help Complete Goals
Google today announced new integration between its Google Goals tool and Google Fit and Apple Health. In order to help ease the process of meeting goals, Fit and Health can automatically record and mark users' goals in Google Calendar as "done." The tool is smart enough to see that if users set goals for something like "run at 6am" but never get out the door until 6:45, Goals will adjust automatically to reflect the user's actual behavior. Google says this integration with Google Fit and Apple Health give people more ways to manage the activities they like to pursue — and find the time to do them. The feature is being added to the latest version of the Google Calendar app.
