BRUSSELS (Reuters) - EU antitrust regulators have extended their investigation into Alphabet GOOGL.O unit Google's fitness tracker maker Fitbit FIT.N to Dec. 23, the European Commission said on Wednesday.
The EU competition enforcer last month kicked off a full-scale probe into the deal, saying Google’s pledge not to use Fitbit’s data for advertising purposes was insufficient to address competition concerns.
“The Commission extended the deadline in agreement with the parties,” the EU executive said in an email.
