We remember that Google Fit is one of the best walking apps you can use on Android.

What is the Google Fit pace walk

Google Fit Pace Walk is a new type of workout added to the Google app in version 2.57. Your goal is to get a better performance from the walks you do every day by setting an intense pace of steps per minute. Thus, with light walking, you will demand from your body a greater intensity than if it were a simple walk.

As Google explains when testing this tool, this light march is based on a rhythm of 100 steps per minute for most people. If you do it well, the most normal thing is that you end the exercise panting a little, so you will notice that your walk has been intense. To help you stick to your pace, Paced Walk features a metronome that marks you with auditory cues the steps you must take.

These sounds are not incompatible with listening to your favorite music or podcasts, as they will be played over them. As we discovered when testing the feature, the minimum pace you can set is 60 steps per minute, while the maximum is 160 steps per minute. If you still don't have this interesting training on your Google Fit, remember to update the application from Google Play Store to receive.
