Jawbone Files Lawsuit against Fitbit

Jawbone Files Lawsuit against Fitbit

The battle of the wearables just took up another step forward after two of the leading companies pioneering the technology became involved in a legal dispute.

Jawbone, the maker of the UP fitness tracker band, has filed a lawsuit in a California court against Fitbit.

The lawsuit alleges rival Fitbit, which also makes health tracking devices, stating that it stole information and data about the company by poaching staff.

Lawyers for Jawbone claimed in the filing that this case has started out of concealed efforts of Fitbit to steal talent, trade secrets and intellectual property from its chief competitor, the New York Times reported.

The lawsuit's timing couldn't be worse for Fitbit which is about to embark on a $100m ($65m) IPO on the New York Stock Exchange.
