Re: The thought of Google having real time health data on me...
You already carry a tracking device that you paid for called a smartphone.

Apple is taking the public position that they wont share your data with anyone else. Except for Apple, I guess.

Google hasn't publicly taken this position. It may have to in order to compete.

This is very similar to a flashdrive in your car that sends information to your insurance company who may then give you a discount for being "good". 

What information do we want to trade off for convienience or money?

Apple has a similar product for health data collection, and really, really hopes you feel that way about Google.
