It can now be used for creating fitness focussed apps and also comes with a single set of APIs for those apps. It will also let manufacturers access fitness related data from these apps and sensors onboard the device. It basically aims at focussing on fitness wearables, which are a new and developing section of the smart device market.

If you are a developer, you will be able to launch your app later this year when Google launches the full Google Fit SDK as part of Google Play services for handsets, Android Wear and also for the web.

It is a new exciting world post the Google I/O 2014. Most people are waiting with their hands on their hearts, for Google’s new operating systems to land on the scene.
