Now You Can Track your New Year’s Fitness Targets with Google Calendar’s Goals

Google Calendar announced an update to its Goal feature that now works with Apple Health and Google Fit.


Last year, people Google Calendar announced Goals that had many people excited over it. The app incorporated Google’s prestigious AI that helped users figure out when and how to fit a run in your daily routine, or when to learn a new skill or even when you need to call your parents. The feature actually helped users diminish the gap between what they wanted and what they thought they could do but always presumed to never have the time for it.

One drawback seen in it was that there was no progression scale related to a goal. Moreover, users had to go each time into the Calendar app and mark the things as done. But these issues can be considered as a thing of the past as Google announced today that it has updated Calendar Goals that cover both of these issues.

Google announced that the Goals feature now works with Google Fit and Apple Health that automatically check off goals when the user completes a fitness activity. This new update is the best option for all those that planned a New Year resolution to run more or get fit more.

Whenever Apple Health or Google Fit logs the run, it updates the appropriate Goal as soon as it completes. Moreover, if you have setup to run each day at 4 PM let say but you do not start before 5 then Goals will make a note of the time your fitness tracker says that you completed the goal and will come up suggestions with better times in the future.

In addition to this, you can also view your progress on a particular Goal and to see how far you are from completing it. You can select any goal on your calendar, irrespective of whether it is completed or not and you will see a row of circular trackers at the bottom that show you how well you have done in this week and in the previous weeks as well.
