Google’s Fit application has been updated with support for tracking over 100 activity types, Android Wear, and a new way to track steps, as discovered by Android Police. The app is available as an APK right now, and is expected to appear on the Google Play store at some point in the near future.

The update introduces the ability to manually enter many, many new types of activity, ranging from biking to kickboxing, and even housework. Yes, you read that correctly. Google Fit can track your activity during housework.

There’s also a bug fix for situations where a smartwatch disconnects from your phone. The fix is called “experimental” in the change log, and modifies how steps are counted in the event that the two devices can’t communicate with each other.

You can grab the app now from APK Mirror or wait a while until Google pushes it out to the Play Store.
