      OP
      It's easy for people to judge a company based on their current performance but I want to work for a company that has something in store to be great in the future. That's the sense I get from some of my friends that work at Fitbit.

      @Sportyspce, do you think Fitbit is able to pivot into adjacent markets and have products other than just wearables?
