Facebook has been revealed as "Party A" from a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing which bid several times in October in an attempt to acquire health tech company Fitbit, CNBC reported on Tuesday.

Rival tech giant Google on Nov. 1 announced its plan to buy FitBit for $2.1 billion cash, which comes out to about $7.35 a share.

In contrast, according to the filing, Facebook's best and final offer was $7.30 a share.

The SEC filing also shows that Fitbit CEO James Park had dinner with “the chief executive officer of Party A” on June 11 and then again in July.
