Fitbit to move all operations out of China from Jan

Wednesday 9 October 2019 | 18:00 CET | News
Wearables maker Fitbit will be shifting its tracker and smartwatch manufacturing operations outside of China. The moves comes after the US government put many Chinese companies, including Huawei, on an export blacklist. From January 2020, Fitbit's products will no longer be of Chinese origin and therefore no longer subject to Section 301 tariffs.
