Kohn, Swift and Graf is investigating claims for a class action suit against Fitbit, Inc.
It is alleged that Fitbit’s “Charge HR” and “Surge” wrist-based heart rate monitors do not and cannot consistently and accurately record wearers’ heart rates during the intense physical activity for which Fitbit expressly markets them. It is further alleged that Fitbit has falsely promoted its monitors and, as a result, has been able to sell and profit from the products under the pretense that they provide accurate readings of heart rates.
Accurate heart readings are vital for those engaging in fitness and can be significant and critical to the health and well-being of people whose medical conditions that require them to maintain (or not exceed) a certain heart rate. However, numerous consumers, including athletes who simultaneously tested their heart rates using the Fitbit devices and chest strap and other types of heart rate monitors, and expert analysis have corroborated the inability of the monitors to perform as promised and warranted.
Based on these allegations of false promotion and misrepresentation of Fitbit’s “Charge HR” and “Surge” wrist-based heart rate monitors, KSG is investigating claims for a class action against Fitbit Inc. To aid in our investigation, we would like anyone who has purchased Fitbit’s “Charge HR” and “Surge” wrist-based heart rate monitors to contact us. All initial attorney consultations are free of charge.
