Google is the latest player in the fitness market with Google Fit.

According to the Google Fit website, Google fit is 'an open platform that lets users control their fitness data.'

The Fitness app market is already populated with third party apps like Nike+, LF, Adidas, Basis, Runtastic, RunKeeper and more. These apps help fitness enthusiasts keep track of their workouts and fitness. Although these apps find a place on Google Play, iTunes as well as Windows Store, they are not affiliates with either of these telecom giants.

Google Fit has tied up with a lot of partners to make the experience better and to integrate a lot of fitness software into their own. Here are a few of their partners: Adidas, Asus, Basis, HTC, intel, LG, Motorola, Nika, noom, Polar, Runkeepper, Runtastic and Withings

According to the website, Google Fit will officially release in Fall 2014.

The Google Fit Software Developer Kit will help developers create fitness apps by granting them access to the app user's fitness history. Apps built by developers can use that data for personalized coaching, recommendations and fitness insights.
