Google announced that its redesigned Fitbit app — featuring a new three-tab structure for easier access to curated health and fitness content, easy-to-glance stats and more — is rolling out to users starting today.

As revealed last month, Google says the app’s refreshed design makes it easier to use with new tabs: “Today,” “Coach” and “You.” While the “Today” tab was already there, it now gives users access to statistics such as today’s steps, stress management, sleep score, zone minutes and activity. Users can customize which stats they see by tapping Edit at the top of the tab, allowing them to focus on their personal goals.

The “Coach” tab acts as a content hub for users to filter workouts based on workout type, duration, equipment required, instructor and more. Also, Fitbit Premium members can now unlock more content like HIIT and dance cardio classes.

The Charts section now breaks down metrics and highlights patterns to help users better understand health and wellness data. For example, users can tap the “Active Zone Minutes” metric to find out what your active rate zone is, which is based on your resting heart rate and age.

Meanwhile, the “You” tab lets users set their goals for step count, activity, and sleep, along with features like Activities and Community. Fitbit has also increased the accuracy of its step count tracker thanks to improved communication with phone sensors, according to the company.

The new app allows users to log information without using a Fitbit device or Google Pixel Watch.
