Google recently announced a new update to its goals feature in Google Calendar, and it’s just in time for those of you tackling your new year’s resolutions.
Introduced in April, Google Calendar’s Goals feature makes it easy to keep track of your goals progress. The feature works best if you’re a regular Google Calendar user.
After you set a goal for yourself, you’ll be prompted to answer questions like how often and what’s the best time? Google Calendar will then find the best time in your calendar for you to work towards your goals.
So what has changed? Now you can track your progress when it comes to your fitness goals. By connecting Google Fit for Android users or Apple Health for iOS users. Google Calendar will then be able to track each of your workouts, mark them as done, and provide you with an overview of your performance.
So if you were looking for that extra bit of encouragement to stick to your resolutions, this just might be it.
To create a goal, launch the Google Calendar app on your phone, and tap the + button, and select Goal. You can choose from exercise, skill, friends and family, “me time,” and organization goals.
If you want to try out the new features, select Exercise and choose from the list of fitness activities available. As you walk through the various options, you will be prompted to connect your goal to the Google Fit or Apple Health apps.
