Then there's the elephant in the room, which is Apple — not just Apple's upcoming smartwatch, but the fact that the consumer tech giant plans to yank Fitbit from its store shelves. Fitbit, on the other hand, is still holding out on working with Apple's HealthKit app, which many other health and fitness app-makers have opted to do.
When asked about the current state of Fitbit's relationship with Apple, Park declined to comment on "that particular decision," but said he thinks that Apple "makes awesome products" and that he hopes the two companies will continue to be "great partners in the future."
"I love Apple as a consumer, and HealthKit is really interesting to us. But we're an open platform, and it's something that we're just going to continue to evaluate," he said. "We were really aggressive in integrating with things like Microsoft Health Vault, and we've learned a lot from those experiences."
