Of course, afterward, the story wasn’t as blatant as the first reports of burns caused by a Fitbit smartwatch suggested. Still, it’s not every day that one of the largest wearable manufacturers in the world (and then a subsidiary of Google ) has to recall one of its models and even offer a refund in return.
The Fitbit Ionic has had 78 burns attributed to a faulty battery, but a lawsuit says it’s not the only fitness tracker to experience the phenomenon.

Are All Fitbit Batteries Faulty?
The indictment even claims that “all Fitbit products” are affected, but only the cases of two women with a Fitbit Versa Light and a Fitbit Versa 2 are concretely related to the scythe line, where burns are also said to have appeared.
Although it is quite plausible that Fitbit reuses components such as batteries across several model series, they can hardly be used uniformly simply because of the different designs.
Finally, there are complaints that despite the promise of a full refund, this was only partially paid or not paid at all. Did you happen to be in possession of a Fitbit Ionic and tried to return it or did you already suffer burns from another product from the manufacturer?
