There are probably way too many ways to keep tabs your activity these days -- dedicated fitness trackers, smartwatches, and even your phone let you know how how healthy or lethargic you are. Motorola rolled its own fitness-tracking features app into the Moto 360 smartwatch called Moto Body; it tracks of your steps, monitors your heart rate and provides estimates on how many calories you burn every day. The only downside is that the data was mostly confined to your watch; aside from a weekly progress email, there wasn't an easy way to get that data off your phone. Motorola is changing that today by releasing a dedicated Moto Body app for Android phones.

Moto Body is essentially unchanged -- you still get motivational reminders, progress updates and updated goals based on your activity, but now you can track it all on your phone instead of your watch. There's little doubt that looking back at historical activity data is a lot easier on a larger phone than a tiny watch face, so this update should be useful to anyone who's tried the Moto 360's health-tracking features. Indeed, you'll be able to see your weekly, monthly and yearly activity trends to see just how much progress you're making.

This isn't the only app Motorola has updated today: the company also released a new version of its Moto Connect app. It's not the most exciting app out there, as it mostly serves as a place to manage some Motorola-specific features for the company's phones -- but it also lets you manage your Moto 360 smartwatch. This new update adds support for the 2015 Moto 360, and it also brings all of the new watchfaces for Motorola's newest smartwatch to the older version, as well. Both of these new apps are available right now in the Google Play Store.
