Export Google Fit Data

Google Takeout has recently added support for exporting Google Fit data. You'll be able to download some CSV and TCX files that include your activities and daly aggregations.

* TCX (Training Center XML) is a common file format for fitness activity data that can be imported to many fitness tracking tools such as Garmin Connect and Strava. By default, Fit samples location data with low accuracy and frequency to reduce device battery consumption. These Activities are exported into the Low Accuracy folder. Activities recorded with Fit's active mode will contain more detailed location paths and more accurate data.

* CSV files are easily read by spreadsheet software or parsed programmatically but may not be easy to import into fitness tracking software.

  1. Nice. Yet another excuse for me to continue being a pack rat with that fitness data. XD

  2. Ever since Alexander Bain invented fax machines, business documents have been carefully documented in directories. But now fax machines have become quite tedious. Foiply.com helps you send fax through email and make your business dealings much easier.

  3. Many people will agree that a teacher is someone that is well-respected and loved individuals in this world. They play such a big role in our society. This role particularly focuses in molding the capacities of the young ones who will take charge of our future. format of waiver letter

  4. I need my weight history for medical reasons. Isn't there a way to get your weight history out a single CSV file?

    1. I can't find a way to do this either, I would also like to see though because the way google displays weight history is not very useful for actually tracking my weight changes over time. Did you ever find a way to download this data?

    2. maybe through this: (but I don't know what I'm doing with APIs)

  5. This is really a shame - it's almost impossible to get the weight data. I got the export and can't see the weight data. Why not allow an export of a simple CVS file with a weight time series?

  6. Yes I want weight data too. Can't get it. Though there does seem to be a way through the API, but I am unfamiliar with developer type stuff.
