Alphabet is reportedly interested in buying Fitbit

  Alphabet is reportedly interested in buying Fitbit Fitbit is apparently quite serious about exploring a sale. Reuterssources said Alphabet has "made an offer" to buy Fitbit for an as yet undetermined amount. The insiders warned there was no guarantee the talks would lead to a deal, but the indication of interest is still huge by itself. We've reached out to Alphabet and Fitbit for comment, although they declined to comment to Reuters. If Alphabet did snap up Fitbit, it could dramatically change the landscape for smartwatches. In spite of challenges, Fitbit is still one of the largest smartwatch makers on the planet -- this would quickly consolidate the market.

We check over 130 million products every day for the best prices. The Fitbit Versa 2 is a great improvement over the original model. It runs apps faster and has a larger and clearer display. With the new Fitbit Versa 2 landing recently though, you may want to consider the newer version instead.

Fitbit quietly enables blood oxygen tracking on its wearables .
Fitbit's devices from recent years have blood oxygen monitoring (SpO2) hardware, but they haven't used it -- until now. Users on Reddit and elsewhere have noticed that their Versa, Ionic and Charge 3 devices are suddenly (if sometimes temporarily) providing blood oxygen data to help track health issues like asthma, heart disease and sleep apnea. It's not clear who's getting first dibs, but it's not dictated by device type or Premium memberships. Fitbit confirmed the rollout to Engadget. The devices are using a combination of red and infrared sensors to determine oxygen variation, although the company cautioned that it wasn't a relative figure.
