Huawei Band 2 announced, a more traditional tracker

Huawei might not be able to make heads or tails of smartwatches, but it seems to know exactly where it wants to go as far as fitness trackers go.

Fitbit could be laying off as much as 10% of its crew

Not so long ago, Fitbit, whose name has almost become synonymous with fitness trackers, purchased smartwatch darling Pebble, and, in the process, killed the latter’s smartwatches. Shortly after that, it purchased Vector Watch, another smartwatch maker startup. If you thought those purchases were signs of a strong company ready to gobble up competition and fresh blood, Fitbit’s Q4 earnings call might prove otherwise.
