After rumors and speculation, Google officially announced Google Fit during its annual I/O developer conference back in June. Today, the search giant has released a new Android app for its health-conscious platform that can be used to track your fitness activities like walking, running and cycling.

Mountain View’s new software is compatible with all smartphones and tablets running Android 4.0 or higher, including all Android Wear devices. As a bit of a refresher, Google Fit pulls info from third-party applications and displays data in nifty charts and graphs to help you keep track of your progress and goals. If you somehow find yourself disconnected from your mobile device, your Google Fit data is also accessible from your desktop as well.

If you’re ready to fight the battle of the bulge, or maintain your Adonis-like physique, jog on over Google Play and prepare to get physical.
