Intel shuts down group working on wearables and fitness trackers

We probably won't see any more wearables coming from Intel.

Valentina Palladino - Jul 20, 2017 1:57 pm UTC

Intel was once moving full-steam ahead into wearables, but that effort has apparently come to an end. Reports at the end of last year claimed the company was looking to step back from wearables, but Intel denied those rumors. Now a report from CNBC cites a source that claims Intel completely shut down its wearables division about two weeks ago.
