Google Fit Platform Promises More Accessible Fitness Data, Multiple Partners Have Already Signed On

Google Fit Platform Promises More Accessible Fitness Data, Multiple Partners Have Already Signed On | UX-UI-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

The new Google Fit Platform is a set of cross-platform APIs that developers can use to provide consumers with the means to better keep track 

Olivier Janin's insight:

Google follows the path Apple openned 2 weeks ago with HealtKit introduction at WWDC.

For both of them, to make the digital health eco-system viable, the challenge is : 

- to gather aspirational brands and partners who are already collecting big datas

- to convince the end-users that it is usefull (and safe!) to share their private and personnal datas 

- to interest and allow developers to easy access these datas flows, so that they can create  innovative displays and UX, and sustain meaningful insights for the users.
