Fitbit Inc. (FIT) - Get Fitbit, Inc. Class A Report shares tumbled after the close on Monday as the wearables maker missed earnings and revenue estimates for the fourth quarter of 2017.

CEO James Park highlighted the company's collaborations with United Healthcare (UNH) - Get UnitedHealth Group Incorporated Report and Dexcom (DXCM) - Get DexCom, Inc. Report , as well as Fitbit's investments in developing new smartwatch products in a press release announcing the results. In January, Fitbit announced that United Healthcare's employee-sponsored wellness program would be using the Fitbit Charge 2. Later in the year, the company collaborated with DexCom to develop products to help people with diabetes manage their health.
