Google Now Adds Walking And Cycling Card, Helping You Stay Fit While Tracking Your Every Move

Google Now is showing you how much you’ve walked and biked, all by tracking your location periodically. On one hand, this is a truly useful feature. It acts as a less accurate pedometer, and while it doesn’t give you all the info most nice pedometers do, it’s still a good tool for tracking fitness. On the other, your location is being tracked. Not only is this not good for your battery life (though location is often tracked anyway), but it could be detrimental to privacy. Of course, this feature can be turned off, along with all location features.

Still, this could be a very useful tool for those who want to start jogging or biking. Would you ever use this feature for exercising? Or do you prefer to turn off such features? Tell us in the comments!
