Google faces full probe of $2.1bn Fitbit acquisition from EU - report
Google is to face a full antitrust probe from the EU over its $2.1 billion acquisition of Fitbit, according to Reuters. Google had offered a partial climbdown, pledging not to use Fitbit's data to target ads in an attempt to appease concerns, although that looks to have failed. Google agreed the deal last November with a view to becoming a leader in the fitness tracker and smart watch markets.
