Google's Fitbit takeover approved by EU

Google's takeover of Fitbit has been approved by the European Commission, following a four-month investigation.

The search giant bought the fitness tracking company for $2.1bn (£1.5bn) in November 2019 - but the EU warned the acquisition could harm competition.

Google has made a series of pledges to address investigators' concerns.

Commission executive vice-president Margarethe Vestager said the deal would keep the wearables market "open and competitive".

The European Commission had expressed concerns Google would:

*use the tranche of Fitbit data for targeted advertising, making it harder for rivals to compete

*exclude third parties from the Fitbit platform

*disadvantage rival wearable device-makers by degrading their compatibility with Google's Android smartphone operating system

Google has now promised:

*not to use health, fitness and location data from Fitbit devices for advertising, for users in the European Economic Area

*to store Fitbit data in a "silo", kept separate from any other data used for advertising

*to maintain third-party access to the Fitbit platform

*not to degrade the user experience of third-party smartwatches when paired with an Android phone

The commitments must be kept for 10 years.
