Fitbit Luxe, one of the most prolific brands when it comes to sports wristbands and watches, has a new device on the market. It is the new Fitbit Luxe, an activity bracelet where design and fashion prevail over other features.
The bracelet arrives just a month after Fitbit launched the Fitbit Ace 3, a bracelet focused on children and with animated characters. This time the focus is more on fashion and those users who are looking for an elegant design in an electronic product to wear on a day-to-day basis. It is the second Fitbit bracelet after the brand was acquired by Google.
Features of Fitbit’s most stylish fitness tracker
Fitbit Luxe is probably Fitbit’s most stylish fitness tracker to date. It is something that we can see directly in the design of the bracelet, where the use of a slim profile stainless steel casing stands out. This is accompanied by a silicone strap in different colors or a golden link bracelet.
Going into more technical aspects, the bracelet has an AMOLED screen to offer “vivid colors”. Inside we find a battery that promises up to five days of autonomy, although they have not specified exact capacity.
Among the functions health and fitness highlights Continuous monitoring activity, detecting up to 20 modes of exercise, monitoring of menstrual health, monitoring oxygen saturation monitoring sleep and monitoring heart rate variability and frequency cardiac. Fitbit says that its bracelet is submersible up to 50 meters, so it can also be used for swimming. In addition, it reminds us that with the subscription to Fitbit Premium you can get more health functions and metrics.
Otherwise, the bracelet also performs the basic functions expected from a device like this. For example, show notifications, offer silent alarms or apps and basic tools such as the stopwatch and the timer.
It is worth noting that the bracelet brings Bluetooth 4.2 as a connectivity system. Thanks to Google Fast Pair the pairing with the mobile is faster. Of course, it does not have GPS or NFC for example.
