Fitbit has unveiled the Luxe exercise tracker, which appears to be a more fashion-forward version of the Inspire 2. Fitbit is making the Luxe official with the announcement that it will be available for preorder beginning today, April 19th, for $149.95. The Fitbit Premium service, which normally costs $9.99 a month, is included in this price. Deepak Chopra’s new Mindful Method programme, which includes over 30 audio and video sessions on mindfulness and wellbeing, was recently introduced on the service.
The Luxe hasn’t been given a definite release date, but the company is looking for a spring release, so it shouldn’t take too long.
The Luxe was created to suit “a wide variety of wrist sizes and skin tones for continuous wear.” Fitbit claims that the Luxe is the company’s thinnest touchscreen tracker yet and that most users should be able to sleep with it on. To that end, Fitbit says it will last up to five days on a single charge, so you won’t have to charge it every night.
The Luxe comes with an adjustable silicone band that can be adjusted in dimension. Other belts, such as silicone bands in a few colors for $29.95 each, woven cotton bands for $34.95, leather bands for $49.95, stainless steel mesh bands for $79.95, and stainless steel link bracelets from premium jewelry brand Gorjana for $99.95, will be available at sale. Starting in June, a limited-edition version of the tracker priced at $199.95 will feature the Luxe with the Gorjana band.
The Luxe is aimed at people who like to wear their activity tracker as jewelry. The organization also went so far as to use a metal injection molding procedure to create the Luxe’s stainless steel shell, which is a typical jewelry-making technique.
The Luxe is a buttonless tracker that relies on its color OLED touchscreen for feedback. Fitbit’s Luxe will be compatible with iOS and Android smartphones, much like its previous smartwatches and trackers. It will also support Google Fast Pair, which will allow it to connect to Android devices more easily. If you want to map your runs or walks, you’ll need to bring your phone with you because the Luxe supports wired GPS when combined with your phone. If you value built-in GPS, Fitbit’s Charge 4 contains it, as well as other features like Fitbit Pay and Spotify controls.
