Google and Fitbit – level 1

08-11-2019 15:00

Fitbit is a company that makes wearable technology. Google and Fitbit make a deal. Google is going to add Fitbit to its company. Google says that Fitbit is worth about $2.1 billion.

The deal is going to help both companies. Google is not selling much wearable technology. Apple and Samsung are the leaders of wearable technology. Fitbit does not have a lot of money to spend to make better technology. Other companies have a lot more money.

Fitbit says that it is going to keep its health and fitness data private. It is not going to use its data for Google ads.

Difficult words: wearable technology (a device that you can wear to measure your exercise activity), health and fitness data (the information that comes from your exercise activity such as how long you exercise, how much your heart beats, or how far you step), private (when only one person can see something that is his).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
