Google has teamed up with three of the worlds top sports, fitness and technology companies, Adidas, Polar and Withings, specifically to kick off a great new competition for developers all over the globe. Starting today, and for the next thirteen weeks (up until February 17, 2015), programmers are invited to submit a newly created, coded, working application and/or showcase an updated existing app that integrates Google Fit.
Once all the entries have been tried and tested by a panel of judges, they will choose up to six new and six existing apps as winners of the Google Fit Developer Challenge. “Winners will be featured on Google Play in front of Android users around the world.” Whilst “runners-up will also receive prizes, in the form of smart devices from Google, Adidas, Polar, and Withings, so that they can continue to tinker and improve their fitness apps with the latest ,” says Angana Ghosh, Product Manager at Google Fit.
