Fitbit, which currently trades at 68% below its IPO debut price, might be looking to the enterprise to boost business amid competition with companies like Apple and Xiaomi. In October, the company posted its first profit in two years, citing renewed device sales and enterprise business for the boost.
Having a stance in the enterprise market may likely help Fitbit boost sales, amid a very competitive consumer wearable tech market that has witnessed shutters, like Pebble, Jawbone and Doppler Labs.
