Google Fit has been largely overshadowed by Apple’s personal health data aggregation platform HealthKit, but at least it’s starting to add some new features.

Google announced today that, at long last, Google Fit can intake data from other popular fitness and food tracking apps, such as MyFitnessPal, Fatsecret, Lifesum, or LoseIt.

It’ll bring also sleep data from the app Sleep as Android, or devices like the Xiaomi Mi Band and Mi Band 1S or the Basis Peak. The integrations are being turned on in the next few days, Google said.

Today, Google said, the app will show you a real-time dashboard of fitness stats on your Android Wear watch to glance at during runs or workouts. It’ll now record your speed, pace, route, and elevation, for example.

It also can now store other workout data. Android Wear watches can now automatically detect and count motions like sit-ups, push-ups, and squats. All this information can be collected in Google Fit.
