Google’s Acquisition Of Fitbit Is Being Investigated

Remember that Mountain View technology will have access to data like heart rate and sleep patterns.

The Financial Times has put forward the news that the acquisition of Fitbit by Google is being investigated by regulatory agencies of the European Union, namely in the areas of competition and consumption.

It was last year that Google announced its intention to acquire Fitbit for $ 2.1 billion, about € 1.8 billion. The deal is expected to be completed this year, but before that, regulators will have to assess how the deal will affect the digital health and wellness space.

As The Verge notes, it should be remembered that, in addition to the company, employees and technology, Google will also acquire all data obtained by Fibit, which includes historical information such as heart rate, physical activity and sleep patterns.
