Welp, this sucks. I love my FitBit but of course Google has to ruin everything.

This is bad. A company like Google now has all that biometric data at their disposal. They know how fast and strong you are; they know all of your limits. Nowhere to run.

Google is WAY too big, why it’s not forced to break up like Microsoft I’ll never get.

They purchased Fitbit solely the data.. Googles new slogan is: Try not to be evil but when there’s financial gain, Be very evil..

Google deserves to be divided like Microsoft was, conglomerates are never good for the people.

Google Fit, bit. Now your Fitbit will need to be charged twice a day because, well, read the reviews on Googles watches for the last four years.

Dear Newsvoice When you post an article, please SHOW THE DATE along with it. I am getting fed up with finding articles on Google and then after opening said link, I can't even tell WHEN it happened (or was written) because the website was too lazy to include a date on it. This is becoming an irritating trend it seems. On another note. Screw Google. They have been doing nothing but go downhill these last few years. They are far too big nowadays. Time to break their sorry @$$'s up!

Bummer. Been enjoying my Fitbit one for years. I assume that the brand will be shut down (or otherwise ruined), or at least my own device will no longer be supported.
