Google Fit has undergone many changes over the past year. From a significant redesign to several minor improvements, and even a new iOS app, the service appeared like it was moving ahead at a steady pace. However, things have not been all that rosy not too long ago. The website interface was shut down in March, and customers have been complaining about issues with the app for months. These issues have now intensified to a point the place many customers can’t even log into the app, and exercise tracking has utterly stopped for them.
Complaints on the Play Store have been piling up for months, with customers voicing their frustration within the review part. Not everyone is affected, however for individuals who are, the app used to work fine until it broke at one level — for most, it occurred final week, however for a lot of, the problems go as far back as March and even earlier. Tracking stops altogether, whether via the app or a Wear OS watch.
If you think about uninstalling then reinstalling, or logging out then logging in, you encounter another symptom: you merely cannot log in. The app says it couldn’t verify your account and won’t let you sign in. No amount of clearing app data or cache helps with that.
And finally, any sync with third-party apps stops, and if you’re attempting to set up sync with Fit right now, it just will not allow you to do that. I have not encountered the tracking or logging in issues. However, sync has indeed stopped for me between Google Fit and Mi Fit (Xiaomi Mi Band).
