Yes, it’s official, Google has just closed the deal to acquire Fitbit

Well, Google just acquired FitBit for $2.1B which was announced by Google’s Senior VP on a blogpost. They decided to buy mainly because they have been focusing on WearOS and Google Fit but not on hardware enough and they want to put out MadeByGoogle wearables. ‘They aspire to create tools that will enhance your health, knowledge, success and happiness’. If you own a FitBit they will give you the option to move or delete your wellness data as they won’t use it for Google ads.
