Google NowGoogle Now has quietly added a new feature to show users how many miles they have walked or biked in the month.

The social spaces are lighting up about the new feature, where people are seeing how many miles they walked or biked in November compared to October.

Here is a picture from Kimberly Hancock as she posted on Google+.

Is it accurate? I am not sure, but does this pose a threat to devices like the Fitbit? Likely.

This feature has been around in my Google Now for a few months now (I think I've seen the card 3 times), but I don't think it's accurate (overestimate)...

This could actually boost interest in devices like Fitbit, which take the "steps" or "miles" concept to the next level.

So Google can now follow people where ever they go to count the miles they walk or bike?
