Oppenheimer analyst, Andrew Uerkwitz, reiterated his Outperform rating on shares of Fitbit (NYSE: FIT) and believes perceived September/October weakness is business as usual—not just for FIT but for the broader consumer electronics space.

The analyst believes that consumers are finished with back-to-school buys and are gearing up for winter holidays. December-quarter estimates are a leap of faith, but looking at past/recent trends gives the analyst confidence in the long term potential for the company. The analyst is seeing a pickup in tracker, in particular the Charge HR 2. Moreover, looking past the holidays, he believes the fuller-featured, higher-quality Charge HR 2 is a harbinger of things to come in 2017.

No change to the price target of $25.
