As rumored, Apple has stopped selling Fitbit devices ahead of the Apple Watch.

Searching the Apple Store for Fitbit yields no results and the company's devices are being pulled from Apple retail stores as well. Notably, Fitbit had just announced new activity trackers including the Fitbit Charge, Fitbit Charge HR and Fitbit Surge with smart watch capabilities.

Fitbit’s previously commented on the news saying that the company still “looks forward to a robust holiday season as the connected health and fitness category continues its rapid growth.” They also note that that Fitbit is still sold in over 37,000 retail stores worldwide, including Amazon, Best Buy, Bloomingdales, Kohls, Target and Walmart.

This is the second time of late that Apple has removed a competitors products from its stores. Last month, it stopped selling Bose speakers, headphones, and other accessories in its online and retail stores.

This is due to the fact that FitBit said they wont intergrate themself with Apples Health App. FitBit and Apple Health App would work perfect together, but FitBit saw this as competation for this current app. Thus the recent update to there app, etc. Who is being greedy?

That's bullshit. Apple can't stand or compete with others. They just force customers to buy their own products with high price for low quality. This is not how business should be done. Now its like customers are with out any choice. Greedy apple. Enjoy iSheeps this monopoly.

This is no different than racism, they should let customer decide, remember Microsoft was fined just for trying to force customers use their browser, these people act like communists, obviously they learned a lot from their masters in China. What next? Forcing to hug a gay?
