how to invest in stocks: Fitbit, Inc.(FIT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

    The NBA authorized jersey sponsorships last year, and Flagstar joins companies such as Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co (NASDAQ: GT), Fitbit Inc (NYSE: FIT), eBay Inc (NASDAQ: EBAY) and General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) in sponsoring a team’s jersey.

    Does the debacle that Fitbit Inc (NYSE:FIT) has become have you soured on the very idea of wearables? Don’t let the rise and fall (and then more fall) of FIT deter you from wearables investments. Fitbit was in the ballpark, but even once it realized it wasn’t quite hitting the target, it failed to reset its sight. Instead, it doubled down on an unmarketable premise. There’s an up-and-coming outfit called CardioComm Solutions Inc. (OTCMKTS:EKGGF, CVE:EKG), however, that understands exactly where Fitbit got tripped up and is appropriately responding.

    CardioComm Solutions is the name behind a brand of wellness products sold under the HeartCheck brand. Those devices are small, handheld portable ECG (electrocardiogram) readers that put the power of a doctor’s or hospital’s heart-monitoring hardware in the hands of individuals who can use them just as effectively.

    Its flagship products are the HeartCheck ECG Pen, for consumers (available without a prescription), and the HeartCheck ECG monitoring device (available only by prescription) that’s a higher-level technology. More are on the way too. The ECG ‘Card’ is a credit-card sized device that syncs up with — and is powered by — a smartphone in close proximity. Also on the way is the HeartCheck band, which is worn on the wrist. It does a lot that the Fitbit bands do, with the added benefit of being able to produce clinical-grade ECG readouts viewable not just by the user, but by a doctor, clinic, or call center if that user chooses to deliver them remotely using the company’s platform.

    The foundation for the hardware, though, is the software called GEMS… short for Global ECG Management System. It’s powerful enough to make ECG readouts a doctor could use, but accessible enough for the average person to use, and flexible enough to use on any kind of operating system, including any of the market’s most popular smartphone platforms.

    Indeed, GEMS and a sister piece of software called G

    With the benefit of hindsight, it’s clear that the better recent stock buy in the wearables space has been GPS device specialist Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN) over former market darlingFitbit (NYSE:FIT). It turns out that Garmin’s diverse product line helped it weather collapsing sales in its core automotive division. Targeted innovation bets by Fitbit management, on the other hand, failed to hit the sweet spot of consumer demand amid rising competitive threats.

  • [By Timothy Green]

    Shares of Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) tumbled 75% in 2016, according to data provided byS&P Global Market Intelligence. Investors weren’t thrilled about heavy spending on R&D knocking down profitability, especially when that spending failed to produce anything other than weak guidance for the fourth quarter.
