Two weeks ago in the aforementioned medium they echoed how Google Fit and Fitbit were increasingly integrated into Nest Hubs, being able to see activity statistics such as the number of steps. Now it seems that a further step has been taken and now it can even be integrated with the assistant from the mobile.

And what does this mean? So basically we can use Google Assistant to perform queries certain related to the activity recording of a Fitbit fitness tracker or smartwatch. Specifically, you will be able to obtain reports of activity, distance and heart rate metrics. You can even receive information and suggestions without having to consult the assistant.
