A false advertising class-action lawsuit
was filed against Fitbit in February 2016. According to the complaint, the company deceptively markets the Charge HR and Surge wristband activity trackers with PurePulse™ Heart Rate technology as providing users with accurate heart rate data during high-intensity workouts and training sessions when, in reality, the devices do not accurately record heart rates during intense workouts. (Landers et al v. Fitbit, Inc.
, Case No. 16-cv-777, N. D. CA.)
