Oculus Move is a fitness tracker app that lets you know how much you are training in virtual reality.


Facebook’s Oculus Quest VR platform has continued to add updates over the past year and a half, but its latest release could make it a full-fledged training ecosystem for the winter. The Oculus Quest 2 Also gets visual upgrades to support 90Hz refresh rates in games and for PC use. This is all part of a software update announced today.

Oculus Move, a new fitness dashboard that tracks movement and estimated calories burned across multiple VR exercise apps, will roll out next week as part of a Quest and Quest 2 software update. Move was announced earlier this fall during Facebook’s Connect virtual conference at the launch of Quest 2.

The latest software update will also unlock smoother 90Hz VR support in Quest 2 for games that choose to enjoy it. The first games with updates, according to Facebook, will be Superhot, Echo VR, Beat Saber, Vacation Simulator, Job Simulator, Racket: Nx, and Space Pirate Trainer.

90Hz VR is the standard for PC VR, and the Quest and Quest 2 can already function as PC VR headsets with a USB-C cable. This PC-connected feature, called Oculus Link, also gets 90Hz support on the Quest 2.
