- Jawbone closing; CEO shifts to health
By Selina Wang - Monday Jul 10, 2017
Jawbone — a pioneer in wearable technology that was once a darling of Silicon Valley — is going out of business, but its CEO and many employees have an unusual exit strategy: [...] its investors, including BlackRock and the Kuwait Investment Authority, are tallying losses from more than $900 million in equity and debt funding the fitness gear maker raised over the years. Fitbit is looking to eventually deliver consumer subscriptions that predict health outcomes to move beyond hardware and into a recurring revenue stream, though this strategy is likely three to five years out, said Joe Wittine, an analyst at Longbow Research. If we identify some abnormality in your heart rate, would people be willing to pay for that service?’ If it’s enterprise grade, you bet, Wittine said. Jawbone Health Hub could sell its future device to insurers, hospitals, and employers, according to Jitesh Ubrani, an analyst at IDC. The company would have to invest heavily in research and development to develop medical-grade devices that could measure important health indicators like oxygen level or blood glucose levels, he said. While initially popular, having won plaudits for design and functionality, the company was often plagued by costly manufacturing problems and was sometimes forced to offer customers refunds. Having raised some $900 million in equity and convertible debt funding, the liquidation will likely wipe out equity held by investors, meaning big losses.
