Reach your fitness goals

With 24/7 heart rate tracking, you can track your daily heart rate in real-time to better measure your calorie burn.

Users can also choose from 20 different on-wrist exercise modes including golf, pilates, spinning or tennis.

For those who prefer running, biking or hiking outside, use exercise modes with a connected GPS from your phone to see real-time pace and distance.

Active Zone Minutes provides a personalised standard for tracking activity beyond steps that measures your time spent in each heart rate zone. This can help you track your moderate and intense activity so you can reach the weekly recommended goal of 150 Active Zone Minutes to help improve your health.

For even more encouragement to reach your goals, Reminders to Move will help you stay active and reduce sedentary time. And you can unlock special activity challenges and games with Premium to make reaching your goals more fun.

Better insights

The Luxe gives users access to Fitbit’s wide range of health and wellness features to support a holistic approach to healthy living.

With the Health Metrics dashboard, you can track changes in your wellbeing via the Fitbit app. This information provides insights into:

  • Breathing rate
  • Heart rate variability (HRV)
  • Resting heart rate (RHR)
  • Skin temperature
  • Oxygen saturation (SpO2) – coming soon!

Monitoring day-to-day changes in your HRV and RHR metrics could identify sudden changes in your body, which could be a sign of stress, fatigue or an infection.

Premium subscribers can track their monthly trends and personal ranges, and highlight when any metric is outside a personal range.

Stylish wearable

And all of this is packed into a chic bracelet design in Fitbit’s thinnest touchscreen tracker to date. The sleek design has a soft, gentle shape inspired by the human body that sits lightly on your wrist.

Fitbit achieved the jewellery-like look and feel through modern versions of traditional jewellery-making techniques.

An innovative design process called metal injection moulding, a high-tech take on traditional metal shaping, creates the high-gloss finish on Luxe’s stainless steel case. The result is one of Fitbit’s most fashionable and comfortable devices yet.

The Luxe is designed for a diverse range of wrist sizes and skin tones for 24/7 wear. This versatile wearable is suitable for any occasion and is comfortable enough to wear all day and all night.

You can also pair it with a wide range of new stylish accessories, including a modern luxury bracelet from gorjana.

The Luxe’s broad compatibility with Android and iOS phones, plus Google Fast Pair makes it easy to move without having to worry about connectivity.
