Fitbit’s “Sleep-Tracking” Function
December 2015: Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint bringing similar allegations. According to plaintiffs, the sleep-tracking function cannot measure sleep and can only measure movement.
May 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Fitbit, Inc. for allegedly falsely advertising devices as having a “sleep-tracking” function that will track how long users sleep, the number of times users wake up, and the quality of the users’ sleep when, according to the complaint, the sleep-tracking function cannot tell users about the amount and quality of their sleep and does not work as advertised. (Brickman et al v. Fitbit, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-2077, N. D. CA.)
