It has been rumoured that Google is developing a personal AI assistant for fitness and health that will help you get into better physical shape.
Android Police claims that Google Coach can do more than just monitor your fitness data. The wearable device with a focus on health will make use of artificial intelligence to analyze your routine activities and make recommendations for leading a better life. This includes spewing out fitness programs, offering substitutes if you’ve skipped working out at the gym, and a variety of other things.
The device will also be useful in terms of nutrition. It would provide suggestions for nutritious meals, provide shopping lists, and suggest restaurants depending on your area, in addition to providing shopping lists. Google Coach will monitor your water intake to ensure that you are getting the recommended amount. Hydration is an essential component of overall wellness.
All of this can sound like an excessive amount of information. The study states that the alerts would be packaged together and changed into a system that would make them more communicative. This would make sure that the user wouldn’t have to deal with health advice alerts over and over again.
It is important to differentiate Google Coach from the forthcoming Google Pixel Watch, which is expected to be released in the fall. This will be a distinct Wear OS device that will come packaged with its very own application for mobile devices. It is also possible that it will make a limited appearance on Google Home as well as other gadgets.
This certainly seems like it would be considered an ambitious undertaking. And despite the fact that it may give the impression of being a little deceptive, it hints at the future of wearables, which will involve much more than the mindless tracking of steps and calories. A future in which such devices give a significant analysis of the data collected from our vital signs. Ideally, in real-time, so that we can immediately put our fitness data to use and maximize its potential. There is no doubt about it; this is the path we will take.
Now, none of this is written in stone at all. According to the article, it’s possible that even the name will be changed. There is also no information available at this time concerning a possible landing date.
