The pioneering startup in the wearables space, Fitbit burst onto the scene in 2009 with its wrist-worn activity trackers and popularized the 10,000 steps-a-day goal. But afterwards, the company struggled amid competition from Apple Watch at the high end and cheap Asian trackers at the low end. Google agreed to buy Fitbit in 2019.
