We're making some changes to the Google Fit APIs. Learn about how these changes might affect your app. Read our new policy.


How goals work

Activity goals are targets in the Google Fit app which users can set for themselves. They help motivate users to stay active every day. In their profile, users can choose how many Steps and Heart Points they want to aim for each day. The Fit platform records their goals and tracks their daily activity against these.

Using goals to create a better experience for your users

Your app can read a user's goals to keep track of their personal targets. Use the Goals Client to read a user's Steps and Heart Points goals. Then use the History Client to check how close they are to achieving those goals.

Use this data to help users switch between Google Fit and your app seamlessly, and get consistent information across both apps about their progress towards their fitness goals.

Motivate users to reach their daily goals by giving them updates and insights related to their progress.
