Move it!

Move it! gives you a gentle notification when you've not moved very much in the last hour. Using your Google Fit step data to see when you last went for a walk, Move it! will remind you to get on your feet. Set the sensitivity of the inactivity check depending on your preference. You can set an active time for notifications so you only get the notification during office hours.

Cost: Free

Last year, Google teamed up with adidas, Polar and Withings to invite developers to create Android apps using Google Fit, an open platform that can be used to build fitness apps and keep a user's fitness data all in one place. Google Fit requires a user's consent before apps can read or store fitness data. According to Google, Google Fit provides a single set of APIs to store and access data from apps and sensors in Android devices and wearables. The invitation was met with great enthusiasm by a bevy of developers who accepted the challenge.

In April 2015, Google announced the 12 grand prize winners, each of whom received the X_CELL and SPEED_CELL from adidas, a new Android Wear device, a Loop activity tracker with a H7 heart rate sensor from Polar, and a Smart Body Analyzer from Withings. The apps range from a variety of fitness trackers to training and inspirational apps. This slideshow features the 12 grand prize winning apps.
