- We have already informed you about problems with Fitbit watches associated with burns
- Ionic models have even been withdrawn from sale and circulation
- But that’s not the end of it – on the contrary, there is an inconvenience in the form of collective lawsuits
The original problem with the Fitbit Ionic watch, which could burn its users due to an overheating battery, it escalated in early March. Because of him, the company had to withdraw 1.7 million of these watches from circulation, and the owners in the USA faced the most problems. And it is in the states that mass lawsuits are beginning to emerge against Fitbit.
Fitbit faces mass lawsuits
Unfortunately, it seems that downloading the Fitbit Ionic watch did not end this burn problem, but on the contrary, it started. The lawsuit now claims that all watch manufacturers suffer from the same problem, or rather a defect, and that class action lawsuits are beginning to arise, states server Arstechnica.
It is probably not surprising that these initiations come from the USA, specifically from the states of California, New York, Florida and several others. There were 115 cases of battery overheating in the United States, resulting in 78 injuries caused by the Fitbit watch, including second- and third-degree burns.
Other burns multiply
One of the lawsuits mentions two women who claim that the Versa Light and Versa 2 models caused their burns. In connection with this problem, there has also been a new talk about the Versa and Sense watches. Company Fitbit claims that this is usually a common skin irritation caused by friction.
However, the lawsuit is, of course, of a different opinion, stating that the Fitbit smart watch can overheat and therefore pose a significant risk. If you want to make a picture of the whole thing yourself, be sure to visit official Twitter Fitbit support, where images with burned (or irritated?) users’ wrists can be found.
Google doesn’t rush back
In addition to other cases, the lawsuit also claims that Google, who promised cash compensation for the Fitonic Ionic watch in full, is giving up on time. Some owners allegedly did not receive their money even after two months, and this is also not a good business card. Be that as it may, the Fitbit brand is currently in big trouble and we are very curious how it will all turn out. We will continue to monitor the case for you.
