I don't know if that's a fair comparison since Google Services are running on the vast majority of Android devices (except in China) but Logitech or HP don't have that same market share for those respective products.

I get that it's annoying if you choose not to run Google Services. But from a developer perspective if 99.9% of their target market does run Google Services and they make development of the app easier or provide useful features, I can see why they would choose to rely on them.
