Some of the most popular consumer devices could get more expensive for Americans if Trump’s trade war with China heats up. Currently, Trump has slapped tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods, but he is threatening to take that even further with tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods–or even $500 billion.

As Reuters reports, if Trump does up the ante to the $200 billion level, it means popular fitness tech like the some models of the Apple Watch and Fitbit devices such as the Charge, Charge HR, and Surge models could see a 10% tariff, meaning those devices would likely cost you 10% more to buy in the U.S. Besides the Apple Watch and Fitbit devices, the next level of tariffs could also affect Sonos’s Play:3, Play:5, and SUB speakers.
