On November 2, 2016, Fitbit Inc announced its Q3 2016 financial results. Fitbit Inc disclosed that it was lowering its full year 2016 revenue guidance to "between $2.320 billion and $2.345 billion," down from the previously-announced "$2.5 to $2.6 billion." On this news, Fitbit's share price fell $4.30 per share, or 33.6%, to close at $8.51 per share on November 3, 2016, on unusually heavy trading volume.

Then, on January 30, 2017, Fitbit announced its preliminary fourth quarter 2016 financial results.

Fitbit also disclosed expected annual revenue growth of approximately 17%, rather than the previously-announced forecast of 25% to 26%.
