Case Study: HBI Fitbit – Building a consumer brand and a category

Published on 21st February 2018

Munich-based Worldcom PR Group partner, HBI PR & Marcom has been delivering brand leadership for technology companies for over 30 years.

That’s why Fitbit asked HBI to launch their product in Germany at the very beginning of the wearable tech sector. This meant HBI had a dual challenge:

  • Launching a completely new product and a new product category
  • Dealing with the environment of the German public’s strongly held views about personal data security.

Thanks to HBI, the campaign delivered over 2,500 pieces of coverage, 1.5 billion opportunities to see and help grow Facebook followers to over 2.14 million. Fitbit is now a household name in Germany and is the unrivalled leader in the healthy living wearable tech sector.
