Google Fit - Earn Heart Points to stay healthy

Google Fit - Earn Heart Points to stay healthy

To keep your heart healthy, the American Heart Association and World Health Organization encourage staying active. Each week, they recommend you do at least 150 minutes of moderate activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity. ou get Heart Points from activities that get your heart pumping. You can earn Heart Points doing activities such as brisk walking, jogging, swimming, taking exercise classes, or playing tennis. You get Move Minutes from any activity that gets you moving. Examples include yoga, dancing, gardening, or household chores. If you go for a walk, you’ll earn a Move Minute every time you take at least 30 steps within 60 seconds.

  • ·         Activity for more than 1 minute (at 30 steps per minute) = 1 Move Minute
  • ·         1 minute of cycling = 1 Heart Point
  • ·         1 minute of brisk walking (100 steps or more per minute) = 1 Heart Point
  • ·         1 minute of running (130 steps or more per minute) = 2 Heart Points

Google Fit gives you a Heart Point for each minute of activity you do. While the WHO and AHA recommend staying active for at least 10 minutes,  recent science suggests that any moderate to vigorous exercise is helpful, no matter how long you do it.
