Google is launching a new series of APIs that let app developers create apps that can share your fitness data. It’ll be an opt-in feature for users, but when you do opt in then all of your apps will be able to access a central repository of your data so that your pedometer stats, for instance, can be shared with multiple apps.

A Google Fit SDK will be available to developers in a few weeks, and hardware and software partners at launch include Runtastic, Runkeeper, Polar, Motorola, Nike, Withings, and Adidas.

This is basically Google’s answer to Apple’s HealthKit and Samsung’s own efforts in the health space.
