As they approach their six month anniversaries, both Google Fit and Apple Health offer more potential than actual functionality at this stage.
Apple Health lets you track everything from the amount of fibre in your diet to your body temperature, whereas Google Fit goes nowhere near this level of detail. Then there’s the Medical ID part of Apple Health too. It’s designed to be a fully featured picture of your health and medical history, whereas Google Fit only concerns itself with whether you hit your steps goal for the day.
Android Wear, like Google Fit, sticks to the basics, so everything is covered. Perhaps it’s only when these Google and Apple-branded wearables get established that the corresponding apps are going to come into their own.
Google’s service could use some more features, so that may be in the pipeline for this year’s Google I/O. Apple’s service could use some more sources, so it may be the Apple Watch that finally helps the app make sense.
Right now, these two big players are both being left in the shade by more established apps from the likes of Jawbone and Fitbit. In terms of picking a frontrunner, Google Fit and Apple Health each have their own issues to deal with—it feels very much like they’re both still stuck in the starting blocks.
