Inventor-backed LoganTree LP has filed suit against Omron (Omron Healthcare) (1:18-cv-01617) in the District of Delaware over the provision of wearable fitness trackers. The NPE asserts the same patent—generally related to a device worn by an individual that measures, analyzes, and records data about the individual’s body movements using an accelerometer, programmable microprocessor, internal clock, and memory—at issue in the other active case in the campaign, a District of Kansas suit still in early stages against Garmin. The first defendant, Fitbit, settled in November 2016, leading to a dismissal from the Northern District of California in early 2017.
LoganTree LP, a Nevada corporation, filed suit against Fitbit (2:15-cv-01575), alleging infringement of a single patent (6,059,576).

LoganTree’s complaint accuses Fitbit of infringement through sale and manufacture of its Fitbit Zip, Fitbit One, Fitbit Flex, Fitbit Charge, Fitbit Charge HR, and Fitbit Surge.
