Fitbit ups health play to counter tracker troubles

Partners include diabetes management company Dexcom, oncology management specialist Diplomat Pharmacy, wellness company Humana (Go365) and drug store Walgreens.“Smartwatches provide a powerful platform to deliver important health tools that help our users manage conditions more conveniently than ever before. With these apps and clock faces, we continue to deliver on our promise to bring important health information to the wrist,” said James Park, co-founder and CEO of Fitbit.The moves come shortly after Fitbit partnered with Google to bolster its health capabilities.Tracker tribulationsFitbit’s push into health, accompanied by the launch of smartwatch devices, comes as it sees weakness in its core fitness tracker market. While its smartwatch proposition is picking up pace, trackers are still the biggest chunk of its business, which is impacting its numbers.The company sold 2.2 million devices in the first quarter (to 31 March), down 27 per cent, leading to a 17 per cent decrease in revenue (average selling price was boosted by increased sales of more expensive smartwatches). It said that while smartwatch sales did not completely offset the revenue decline, “it strengthened the brand and relevancy while highlighting the opportunity to regain market share”.Smartwatch revenue is expected to exceed tracker revenue in the second half of 2018, driven by both new users and upgrading Fitbit customers. In Q1, smartwatch revenue represented 30 per cent of the total, having nearly doubled quarter-on-quarter.With regard to trackers, Fitbit said it continues to see demand in the market “across price-conscious users in the health care system”, so it will continue adapting to serve the segment. It expects to use a common tracker operating system “while leveraging our supply chain to more efficiently design, develop and manufacture devices”: it said that using technology from its Ionic smart watch enabled it to launch its Versa watch with “approximately 45 per cent less development hours”.For Q1, Fitbit saw its net loss increase to $80.9 million from $60.1 million in the prior year, on revenue which declined to $247.9 million from $298.9 million.And while Fitbit is pushing hard into health, it acknowledged that while it expects to grow the business and increase premium subscribers, this will be “relatively immaterial to wearable device revenue”.

Doing a disservice

first_img David McIntosh QC, council member and past-president, the Law Society; chair, City of London Law Society; senior consultant, Rodney Warren & Co Mr Digby-Bell is entitled to his opinions, which he is rarely slow to publicise. In doing so in his letter without a word in advance or participation in the council’s debates, he belittles the considerable efforts of the Law Society and its president in fighting for access to justice and against the government’s threatening legal aid cuts. I doubt that many of the Gazette’s readers or those who voted for him are aware that, of the last 20 council meetings he has been eligible to attend, he has only turned up to seven. Had he paid more attention or enquired, his observations would have been better informed. The views he expressed are not shared by the national or City of London law societies; something I am qualified to make clear because of my roles in both, and my regular attendances at their meetings.last_img read more

Talgo developing plans for UK rolling stock factory

first_imgUK: Spanish rolling stock manufacturer Talgo has confirmed that it is developing plans to open a factory in the UK with a ‘fully localised supply chain’, to support its strategy of gaining a foothold in the British and Irish rolling stock manufacturing and overhaul markets.Talgo President Carlos de Palacio has recently held industry meetings in the UK to publicise the company’s ambitions, and in September former Hitachi Rail Europe Production Director Jon Veitch joined the company as Key Account Manager, UK & Ireland.Talgo said it has already held discussions with local authorities, members of parliament and other stakeholders, and was analysing ‘a dozen locations’, including sites around Leeds and Liverpool, where it could undertake ‘the whole train construction process’ should it win contracts which are currently being tendered. Talgo said the new facility would create ‘hundreds of highly-skilled jobs and to spur the development of local talent’, supplying customers in the UK and Ireland as well as supporting its global activities ‘by tapping the renowned British components industry.’Talgo said the need to provide more passenger capacity within the challenging constraints of the UK network offers a ‘level playing field’ where its designs would be competitive. The company pointed out that it offers regional and commuter designs as well as high speed trainsets, and it has experience of electro-diesel trainsets capable of running from new lines onto existing routes.last_img read more

Sea Fishing with KPK Food Services

first_imgTwo fish with one hook!We saw many sailfish swimming alongside the boat and further away, but sadly they did not like the look of our baits.Gary Stocks eventually told us why.  Apparently the night before was a full moon and because of this the fish can see their prey by the light of the moon and feed all night, leaving them too full to feed by day.  I am not sure of this philosophy, but by the fact that we never caught one we were all too pleased to accept the reason.However fret ye not!  The day turned out to be a super day for the smaller varieties with approx 30 to 35 kilos of good eatable sized fish.The photo shows one of the groupers caught.  This was strange really because the first bite was the smaller fish you can see in the mouth of the grouper.  As the small fish was being reeled in the grouper took a bite at the small fish and got hooked with the same hook.As the sun started to disappear on the horizon we all decided that it was time for a beer or two and instructed the skipper to head for home.Our next trips are scheduled for the 10th December and the 24th (yes, Christmas Eve).  Both trips have vacancies at present.  Anyone interested please call me (Mike) on 087 091 7565. Due to the winds and tides most of the fishing boats tend to dock at Sattahip harbour this time of the year.  There is a huge breakwater built by the navy there and this shelters all the boats during the winter months.  Or maybe it’s because we had heard that there were some sailfish about?  Well that turned out to be true.  It is quicker to drive to Sattahip and take the boat to the waters where the sailfish are than try to reach them from Bangsaray. So, off we set into the morning sun on November 17 with a cloudless sky and a fresh breeze to keep us all cool.As we neared the fishing ground we were seeking there were shouts of “Look at that!” as a sailfish was moving across the top of the water towards the boat on its side.  We all thought that someone had hooked it and it was being reeled in.  However this turned out to be untrue.  The fish was merely showing off and taking the Mickey!  This happened all day.last_img read more

Valencia 2-1 Athletic: Basque side controversially progress on away goals

first_img That goal pulled the Basque side back within a goal of Valencia on the night at Mestalla, but handed them a crucial away goal advantage after they prevailed in the first leg at San Mames in torrid conditions by a solitary goal last week.  Gomes should have added a third, before Athletic at last showed some attacking intentions. Ryan, though, was on hand to deny Susaeta and then Aymeric Laporte.  CET Aritz Aduriz’s second half goal sent Athletic Club through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League at the expense of Valencia, whose manager Gary Neville was sent to the stands as a result.  It wasn’t to prove enough, though, as Aduriz’s 31st goal of the season carried Ernesto Valverde’s men into the next round. It leaves Neville in a kind of wilderness, out of the Copa del Rey, out of Europe and languishing in the bottom half of La Liga, unlikely to be pulled into the relegation zone, but not troubling the European spots.  The English coach was furious at the manner of Aduriz’s strike, adamant Markel Susaeta had handled in the build up. The referee didn’t agree, though, and play went on, with Oscar De Marcos’ cross sensationally, if not necessary intentionally, flicked into the path or Euro 2016 contender Aduriz. Neville was then removed from his dugout for his protests.   And while Valencia will lament and complain about the Basque side’s eventual equaliser, they also have to ask themselves why they didn’t finish the game off. Valencia, roared on by their home fans and to the backdrop of the Fallas festival in the city, had taken a two goal lead, steering themselves clear in the tie. Santi Mina had opened the scoring with a poacher’s finish and Aderlan Santos added the second with a spectacular header.  That goal took a bit of the sting out of Neville’s men, but they rose again. Andre Gomes had already come close when Santos rose highest to head home a fantastic Gaya centre just after the half hour mark.  Sam Marsden 17/03/2016 Upd. at 22:08 He’s likely to remain in charge until the end of the season, which is when his six month deal expires, but it’s not as likely he’ll be the manager of the football club by the end of the summer – even if he has began laying foundations, such as the pre-season schedule, for next season.  Negredo headed over before the break and after it another Gaya cross was deflected towards goal by the same player, but Herrerin remained big. The Athletic goalkeeper was rooted to his spot moment later, but Gaya’s shot sailed over the bar after good work from Rodrigo Moreno.  Jose Luis Gaya, who had an outstanding opening 45 minutes at left-back, was the creator of both Valencia goals. His 14th minute cross was stabbed towards goal by Negredo and Mina was alive to jump on the rebound after Iago Herrerin had saved the initial effort.  It always felt like this would be a special night. The atmosphere was electric in Mestalla and Alvaro Negredo came close with an early free-kick. Aduriz then shot straight at Mat Ryan after cutting in from the right wing, but the first half largely consisted of one way traffic.  Then came Aduriz’s controversial goal. Valencia huffed and puffed in search of another of their own, but it never came. Herrerin got in the way of Paco Alcacer’s header and Sofiane Feghouli fluffed the second chance. In stoppage time, Dani Parejo was handed a free-kick just out side the area, but his effort flew a whiske wide, Valencia’s Europa League hopes and Neville’s long-term job prospects flying with it.last_img read more

Powered by Firework Phillipe Coutinho is not seeming to be very much happy at Barcelona at this moment. It is evident that the star Brazilian attacking midfielder is going to leave Camp Nou at the end of this season. Phillipe Coutinho is now not regular in the starting lineup of the Catalan Giants in this season under the management of Ernesto Valverde. It is seeming that the manager is liking the way Coutinho is playing nowadays.Advertisement Phillipe Coutinho was not in the first team of Barcelona in the first leg of their Round of 16 clash against Lyon. After that incident, the rumours of his departure are getting stronger than ever. Accoding to the sources, the next destination of the former Liverpool midfielder is going to be Paris Saint Germain. Barcelona are also interested to bring in the German midfielder Julian Draxler in the next summer transfer window. So, a swap deal is on the cards involving these two players.Advertisement However, Paris Saint Germain have still not shown a real interest to bring in Phillipe Coutinho in their squad yet. So, we will have to wait and assess the situation in the next summer to see how things go on between these two clubs.Barcelona officially announce Frenkie De JongAdvertisement   Advertisementlast_img read more
