On Apple's Heels, Google Introduces Health, Fitness Tracking Platform

Google will officially launch its mobile health and fitness tracking platform at its annual developers' conference, June 25 to June 26 in San Francisco, according to a report in Forbes.

The new platform, Google Fit, will aggregate health and fitness data from multiple apps and trackers to present a more comprehensive view of a user's overall wellness. Google is expected to announce partnerships with wearables vendors at the conference, according to the report.

Google's announcement will come less than a month after Apple announced HealthKit, a health and fitness platform with similar aggregation capabilities.
