welp, the rumors were true, Google did in fact buy FitBit: https://www.theverge.com/2019/11/1/20943318/google-fitbit-acquisition-fitness-tracker-announcement

I *want* to switch to an Apple watch, but I can't until it has built-in automatic sleep tracking like the FitBit does!

@aaronpk I use AutoSleep and it detects sleep/wake times and gives a good amount of data on the sleep. Perhaps you've already considered that.

@samgrover Yeah it's more on principle that I don't think a $399 luxury watch should be less capable out of the box than a $99 FitBit

@aaronpk Gotcha, yea, it would be nice to have that as a first party feature.

@aaronpk If that's your only criteria, then sure, but seems a small compromise, all things considered :)

@jack It's not a small compromise because that's literally 90% of the reason I even have a smart watch in the first place.
