Everyone and their cats are looking at Google to see if they are misusing private data.

Nobody cares what Fitbit is doing with the data.

But lets trust Fitbit more than Google.

FitBit has your health data but not all the other data about you which Google is squirreling away. If you have an email address for Gmail against your Fitbit info then that health data is now available to be merged with all your other data. It can then be sold to anybody who offers enough for it or you will start to get ads for health products when Google starts analyzing your health info.
