What do Fitbit customers think of Fitbit after Google bought Fitbit? Jennifer Elias:
When Mike Carpenter learned Google’s latest acquisition would be Fitbit, the maker of a device he wore at all hours of the day except in the shower, he left his Fitbit Charge 3 on the table at his office where he was working that day. He, and others like him, haven’t picked theirs up since.
Why not? Carpenter:
I’m not only afraid of what they can do with the data currently, but what they can do with it once their AI advances in 10 or 20 years… Health insurance companies would love to get their hands on that data and their purposes wouldn’t be advertising so is that what they are going to do with it? They didn’t spend the money to not utilize it in some way.
Google is dangerous to your health information.
