Google’s already looking to push its newly released fitness platform harder with developers, so has announced a new competition for those who build unique apps that utilize the API.

The competition, which starts today and ends on February 17, 2015, asks developers to build an app that integrates with Google Fit in an innovative way. Winners will receive a feature on the Google Play Store, free wearable devices and more.

The Google Fit Developer Challenge is open to those in the US, UK, France, Germany, India, Israel, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan that are over 18 years old.

Any old app won’t cut it, though, with the company saying that it’s looking for apps that meet the Android “design and quality” guidelines, offer real benefits to users and keeps them coming back.
