Move minutes are created to encourage you to move more and sit less. Move Points are awarded for pretty much anything that gets you moving around, whether that's just walking up the stairs instead of taking the elevator or taking a walk on a break instead of a sitting down and vegging out.

Google Fit will also integrate into other fitness tracking apps such as Strava, Runkeeper, Endomondo and MyFitnessPal so that every single piece of activity is recorded and counted towards your Move Minute and Heart Point total.
