Google purchased Fitbit for $2.1 Billion

The tech giant Google purchased the smartwatch and wearable tech company in a major deal.

This step shows Google has an interest to get into the smartwatch market.

According to Rick Osterloh, VP of Googles wearable gear, this purchase made in order to improve Wear OS – Googles operation system for wearable gear. Google probably looking into develop and expand this line of products in the future.

According to Google, Fitbit will work the same way Nest works (which Google purchased few years ago). For many years we hear Googles intentions to get into the smartwatch market and even the term “Pixel Watch” was already heard before.

Google is known to work smarter rather than longer. Google already purchased HTC as a base for the Pixel phone, Google purchased Nest as a base for their smart speakers, and now they purchased Fitbit in order to get into the smartwatch market.

This is an explicit move to challenge Apple who runs this market with their Apple Watch, and with Googles marketing and tech abilities, this goal doesn’t seem so far fetched.

Fitbit already tried to calm down their current customers and said that the customer information won’t be used in Googles marketing. Osterloh said that with Fitbit technology and Googles understands in AI, they will be able to create better products for people all over the world.

Google Forgot These Important Details

On Tuesday, Google held an event in New York where they revealed their new line of product for 2019-2020, and on the top of the list – The Pixel 4.

But it appears as they forgot to few important things that you might want to consider before deciding.

What about Google Photos?

One of the greatest features of all Pixel phones that Google released over the years is the amazing camera. In all previous models, Pixel users got 2 years free of unlimited storage for all of their photos and videos so they will be able to save their precious memories in the highest quality possible. But this time, Google said nothing about this service.

Google home is missing something

Google missed some of the simplest features that Amazon already has on their Echo Dot product, their direct competitor against Google Home.

The Echo Dot has LED screen to show the time, while Google Nest (the successor of Google Home) has an alarm clock, you can’t tell what time it is.

Google Wi-fi

Google managed to create the Nest Wi-Fi – a router with speakers which makes it a great combination between a router and a Google Nest device. But these expensive devices don’t support Wi-Fi 6. While Intel, Apple and Samsung already applied this feature it seems like Google is a step back.

Pricing

Google didn’t raise their prices this time, but it’s still pretty high for the features of their products. The Pixel 4 will cost around $800, which is much more compared to the One Plus 7t which costs $600 and has better processor, bigger battery, bigger screen and more RAM.
