Fitbit is one of the best smartwatch brands in Spain, a company that was bought in recent months. Although the purchase has not been completed until a few weeks ago, Google has begun to move tab with its new product division.
Last January, the Google Spain store welcomed the family to Fitbit products, with an announcement that redirected us directly to the official Fitbit store. We had doubts if there would be an integration of Fitbit products in the store after the announcement, and it seems that they have already started.
The Google Store welcomes Fitbit and displays its watches in the storeIn the last hours, Fitbit has appeared in the official Google store in Spain, which welcomes the purchased watches and bracelets.
Fitbit is now part of the Google store
Although this change has not yet occurred in Spain, as the guys from 9to5 Google have advanced, in the United States they have already begun to take the first steps in the new era of Fitbit. As of today, Fitbit watches appear as one more product of the family in the US Google Store, along with Pixel, Nest, Chromecast and Stadia devices. This change has not replaced the American Fitbit store, which is still active for the moment (although its future remains to be seen).
The Fitbit products that have arrived in the store are the Versa 3, Sense, Inspire 2 and Charge 4 watches. No accessories such as straps or the Fitbit smart scale have arrived.
This change indicates the return of watches to the Google store, already enjoying more prominence within the manufacturer’s portfolio than Wear OS has ever had. We would have to go back to the days of Android Wear to remember a Google Store where smartwatches were sold.
From El Androide Libre we have contacted Google Spain to corroborate whether the changes that the US Google store has had will also be reflected in Spain, having received no response. We will update the article when we have more information.
