Fitbit has announced its Luxe fitness tracker, a premium alternative to the Fitbit Inspire and Charge wearables. A specific release date for the watch has not been announced, although pre-orders for the Fitbit Luxe are available now for $ 1
Earlier this month, news and images of the Fitbit Luxe leaked and details of the leak were found to be accurate. The Fitbit Luxe has a 5-day battery life, interchangeable watch straps, a colorful AMOLED display and a stainless steel case that is made using a metal injection molding process (a common process for jewelry, but not for fitness trackers). It tracks your heart rate, stress, sleep and blood oxygen saturation, and it includes several stress management programs to promote mindfulness and healthy habits. It also includes GPS capabilities, but only if your phone is nearby.
In short, the Luxe is a nicer version of the Fitbit Inspire and Charge trackers and a sleek alternative to Fitbit’s big Versa and Sense smartwatches. It doesn’t have any unique features, although it does come with a 6-month trial of Fitbit Premium, a $ 60 value that offers better health stats, and access to the recently launched Mindful Method program.
The Luxe is Fitbit’s smallest tracker to date, and the company says it should fit most wrist sizes. Several wristbands are launched alongside the device, including woven fabric bands, metal mesh bands, leather bands and Gorjana stainless steel jewelry bands. Still, there’s no word on when pre-orders for the $ 150 Luxe will ship.
