Google’s $2.1 billion Fitbit deal faces EU antitrust probe: sources (Reuters)

Alphabet Inc unit Google this month offered not to use Fitbit’s health data to help it target ads in an attempt to address EU antitrust concerns. The opening of a full-scale investigation suggests that this is not sufficient.”
