Tommy, 15 Jan 2021Ok, so another company that will be killed by Google. :)))Yeah...you are damn correct

This is good news, for consumers, fitbit & WearOS, security for health data is secured & US just taking too long so its right for google to go ahead with the takeover, as If google does not take over Fitbit, fitbit will collapse within a few years, they have been looking for a buyer for a while.

I guess Google is trying to give the Federal government as much evidence as possible that it's an anticompetitive behemoth that needs to be broken up.

Also, prepare for Google to ruin everything about Fitbit that users like. That's basically the point of acquisitions.

Google must be rubbing their hands together like an Evil villian at the amount of data they are going to get.

This is most definitely about the data

So in the end it's all about money! Where are the ethics? I'm seeing many & many companies doing the same.

To Google:
Please do not start sending any ads to my versa just yet. I would hate to see if Google does same to Fitbit just like FB did to whatsapp.
