Posted September 28, 2018 05:40:26The next-generation Fitbit Watch is on its way to the US, but you may have to wait a little longer.
The company on Tuesday said it will no longer offer the wearable device to customers in the US due to “changes in manufacturing requirements.”
The company said that Fitbit has agreed to delay shipments to the United States until the end of October.
Fitbit is the first major wearable maker to announce it is moving its products to China.
The announcement comes as the US market is expected to grow from $1.9 trillion to $2.5 trillion by 2025.
In a statement, Fitbit said the new production facility in China “will allow Fitbit to meet new manufacturing and manufacturing requirements in a more timely manner.”
