Feels like the end of an era. Fitbit co-founders James Park and Eric Friedman are out at Google. As is the case for many people that have been quantifying biometrics and other things, the Fitbit classic was my first tech wearable device. The design was great and it got people to pay closer attention to their movement. Studies have since shown that even 7,000 steps per day can significantly reduce mortality.
