Fitbit’s middle finger to iPhone users could drive Apple Watch sales even higher

The Fitbit Cost 5 launched yesterday, and Google has promised that the smartwatch and health tracker can be quickly based mostly on Google’s Put on OS, nonetheless that hasn’t occurred but. Fitbit might quickly solely help Android gadgets. This might prohibit it to Android gadgets solely, leaving the iPhone and Huawei behind. The CEO of Fitbit stated that “We’ll be constructing premium smartwatches based mostly on Put on OS that mixes the most effective of Fitbit’s well being and wellness experience with Google’s ambient computing capabilities”.

Many Apple customers use Fitbit’s gadgets to trace their actions and examine their well being. Nonetheless, lots of people have switched to Apple’s personal Apple Watches because it presents significantly better integration into the entire ecosystem than Fitbit.

Whereas Fitbit’s Versa and Sense lineup are categorized as “smartwatches,” they’re really not as good as different smartwatches. They lack plenty of performance and integration – they’re basically smartwatch-like health trackers. 

Samsung introduced its new Put on OS gadgets only a few weeks in the past – the Galaxy Watch four sequence. The brand new smartwatches’ working system was constructed in collaboration with Google. It confirmed what is feasible when the 2 huge software program giants work collectively to make the OS extra aggressive. This, nonetheless, additionally meant that the brand new Galaxy Watch four watches wouldn’t work with iPhones and Huawei gadgets, and we wrote an article explaining why. 

Anyhow, since Google now owns Fitbit, they appear to need to provide extra tight integration of the entire ecosystem and apply some strategies to lock it down, though not absolutely. It’s clear that the brand new Put on OS variations will instantly compete with watchOS. When Fitbit absolutely switches to Put on OS, it should seemingly solely work with Android gadgets that help the Google Cellular Companies (GMS) by default, in order that’ll additionally imply that the likes of Huawei can be restricted and never allowed.

Apple used the lightning port for almost all of the Beats headphones after it purchased the corporate, and it solely provided the distinctive pairing options to work with iPhones. Nevertheless, the corporate appears to need to change and cater to each iUsers and Android customers, together with a USB-C port on its newest Beats Studio Buds earbuds.

It’s unclear how all of this can pan out, however we are able to see that Google is attempting its greatest to persuade Android customers that its platform is healthier. It can attempt to forestall customers from shifting away, even when it might probably damage its gross sales, and assist the rivals be barely extra fashionable amongst their very own viewers.
