Fitbit recently acquired smartwatch maker Pebble. The company today announced yet another acquisition, but this time it’s acquiring a fairly unpopular company: Vector Watch. If you are a Windows Phone user, you may be familiar with Vector Watch as the company’s smartwatch is definitely one of the best smartwatches out there which supports Windows Phone. The company also has a pretty powerful Windows Phone app that Vector Watch owners can use to customize and control their smartwatch.
In a blog post today, Vector Watch announced that the company will be joining Fitbit along with its software platform, stating:
Today, we are happy to announce that the Vector Watch team and our software platform are joining Fitbit, the leader in the connected health and fitness market! We believe this is an important milestone as a moment when we will start building other new and amazing products, features and experiences, incorporating our unique technology and knowhow with Fitbit’s experience and global community.
According to Vector Watch, the company’s smartwatch will continue to work, along with the Windows Phone app. It will be quite interesting to see what Vector Watch’s team will be working at Fitbit, but it seems pretty clear that Fitbit is working on a new smartwatch. The company’s recent acquisition of Pebble and the latest acquisition will play a huge role if the company is indeed working on a new smartwatch, especially considering the fact that Pebble is quite experienced at making smartwatches.
