According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Fitbit experienced increasingly serious competition and faced difficulty in differentiating itself from companies including Apple that were creating similar products. Based on this competition, demand and sell-through for the company's products were negatively impacted. This led to Fitbit's sales and financial results weakening at the same time as its growth was slowing. Despite the weakening, the Company's financial guidance was overstated. Based on these facts, the Company's public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Fitbit, investors suffered damages.
