Google buying Fitbit for $2.1 billion

I don’t know anyone who’s bought a Fitbit device recently. I know runners and cyclists with Garmin watches, but I don’t know anyone still wearing a Fitbit… More here.

Interesting observation from John, but I do still see people wearing Fitbits. The thing is that they tend to be ones they have owned and worn for a long time and I see almost no one wearing the newer models.

My latter experience with Fitbit is that there are some features that simply do not work and that the company completely ignores the complaints. To me, Fitbit has lost its way and the company is lucky to be sold for this amount and especially because the Apple Watch kills the devices in terms of accuracy and quality while Garmin wins in the pro-fitness market.
