The rulings name Apple Inc's watch, several Fitbit Inc activity trackers and connected speakers from Sonos Inc. While consumer technology's biggest sellers such as mobile phones and laptops so far have faced little danger of import duties, the rulings show that gadget makers are unlikely to be spared altogether and may have to consider price hikes on products that millions of consumers use every day. The devices have all been determined by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials to fall under an obscure subheading of data transmission machines in the sprawling list of U.S. tariff codes.

Fitbit (FIT) is among the companies and trade associations lobbying congressional lawmakers to support a bipartisan bill that would enable taxpayers to claim tax breaks for gym memberships and other fitness expenses, the Wall Street Journal reported. Under the bill, which advanced in the US House of Representatives earlier this month, gym memberships and certain exercise costs would be considered medical expenses for tax purposes.
Fitbit , the leading global wearables brand, today announced that it expects to release results for its second quarter 2018 on Wednesday, August 1, after market close. In conjunction with a press release, management will host a conference call at 5:00 p.m.
While the Versa’s success may now just be a baby step, it does suggest that Fitbit could eventually see profitability if it plays its cards right. Although Fitbit faces stiff competition in the smartwatch segment from the Apple Watch, which has become insanely popular over the years, one advantage Fitbit has over Apple is that it is compatible with both iOS and Android products. Additionally, Fitbit has been expanding to newer markets.
Shares of wearables maker Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) were red-hot in May and early June. Fitbit’s latest and greatest smartwatch, Versa, is awesome, but not awesome enough to change the landscape of the smartwatch market that is over-crowded with competitors and dominated by Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL).

Fitbit's (FIT) new product launches and diversification strategy are likely to drive growth. However, increasing competition remains a concern.
Alphabet's (GOOGL) Verily decides to set up a venture by joining forces with ResMed in order to reach patients with sleep apnea.
The top U.S. securities regulator said that a second person was involved in a 2016 scheme to file a fake takeover notice of Fitbit Inc. to manipulate its stock price. The Securities and Exchange Commission said Wednesday it filed civil charges against Mark E. Burns, a 30-year-old resident of Norfolk, Va. He couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. The SEC said that Mr. Burns and his colleague Robert W. Murray bought call options on Fitbit stock and then filed a sham notice that a Shanghai-based company intended to launch a bid to takeover the fitness-tracker maker.
Alphabet's Verily is spinning out another joint venture, this time with ResMed, to help people with undiagnosed and untreated sleep apnea. Most people with sleep apnea have never been diagnosed. Thats a huge, and costly problem, as sleep apnea is correlated with a wide range of medical conditions, including heart failure, obesity and strokes.
