Google has launched a new monthly practice challenge for its Google Fit app, on time for your New Year's resolution.
With new updates, users will be able to challenge themselves with new goals every 30 days. They can also collect more Heart Points and Move Minutes.
January's goal allows users to increase Heart Points with more exercise. The harder they push themselves, the more points they will receive.
Heart Points are points that users can get by pumping their heart. For every minute of moderate activity, users can reach Heart Point.
"Press 150 Heart Points per week to meet the American Heart Association (AHA) and recommendations for physical activity of the World Health Organization (WHO) that has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, improve sleep, and improve overall mental health," according to Google.
The first challenge is not available until January 1, 2019. To register first, just open the Google Fit application.
Google even offers advice on how to get more Heart Points, such as:
- Go sledding with your children and get multiple Heart Points.
- Skip the snow blower and take a shovel. Extra points if you work on your neighbor's yard too.
- If you find yourself on the mountain this winter, skiing and snowboarding are all intense activities that can make you double Heart Points.
Google said they had also worked with 36 influencers from nine different countries. Users can follow #GetFitWithGoogle on Instagram and YouTube to see how other people face challenges or share their own experiences.
