Connect step and pulse counter with Google Fit

Is it possible to exchange the values with google fit? As far as I know Google Fit does have an API to exchange data.
Watchmaker should get the step count from google fit, since this is already counting the steps and adding them into the statistics. If I change the watchface during the day it starts counting from zero, which is not correct. If it would take the value from google fit, it would be always correct, even when changing watchfaces.
For the pulse counter it would be the other way around. When watchmaker whatchface is initiating a pulse measurement, it should give the result olso over to google fit, so it could be entered into the statisctics. For that an option how often to measure wuold be good. This would be excelent during workouts. You could see how your pulse was doing over a certain time.

I second this - currently the pulse reader (at least on the 360) doesn't log to fit. This could be a great additional feature for watchmaker. If you had a user preference for how often (maybe 1 min -> 1 hr) to sample and log this would be even better!

It should at least be an option with new tags.

I personally don't care about the pulse thing. But for the step count I agree, it sucks that if I change watch faces, or even watches. It would start from 0. But I have other watch faces that do use Fit and it just picks up where I left off. I wish this one had this
