Fitbit announced the Fitbit Luxe on 19 April, a slim, stylish fitness tracker for the fashion conscious. The Luxe is jewellery-inspired, and unsurprisingly, Fitbit has partnered with
gorjana for Special Edition bracelet options in soft gold or stainless steel.
Looks aside, you can expect the same physical and mental health management tools Fitbit is known for, but on an AMOLED touchscreen previously reserved only for its smartwatches.
Here we’re looking at everything you need to know about the Fitbit Luxe, including cost, features, and where you can buy one today.
Where can you buy the Fitbit Luxe?
The Fitbit Luxe and Fitbit Luxe Special Edition are now available to buy from
Currys PC World and
John Lewis. Buy it from any retailer and you’ll get a six month free trial of Fitbit Premium.
How much does the Fitbit Luxe cost?
The standard Fitbit Luxe costs £129.99/US$149.99/CAD$199 and includes six months of Fitbit Premium for new customers – this places the device in the same price bracket as the
Fitbit Charge 4, which launched last March.
Fitbit Premium costs £7.99/$9.99/CAD$13.49 per month or £79.99/$79.99/CAD$106.99 per year. The standard Fitbit Luxe is available in White/Gold, Black/Graphite, and Orchid/Platinum colour combinations.
The Special Edition gorjana version with Parker Link bracelets costs £179/US$199.95/CAD$249.95 and is available in soft gold or stainless steel. The Special Edition Fitbit Luxe also ships with a Peony classic band and includes six months of Fitbit Premium.
The Parker Link bracelets are available to
buy separately for £89.99/US$99.95/CAD$129.95.

What can the Fitbit Luxe do? Is the Luxe waterproof?
The Luxe, which is compatible with both iOS and Android, offers an AMOLED touchscreen display, 5-day battery life, and water resistance up to 50m.
It doesn’t include an altimeter, so while it can track your steps and distance, it can’t track the floors climbed. You can find an altimeter on the entry-level Fitbit Inspire 2, however.
The Luxe can monitor 20 exercise modes including golf, pilates, spinning, tennis, running, and cycling to list a few. It doesn’t have a built-in GPS like the Fitbit Charge 4, but it can pair with your phone’s GPS. Connecting to your phone also allows the Luxe to display Caller ID, texts and social media messages.
The Luxe offers users Stress Management scores that combine heart rate, sleep quality, and activity metrics to tell you how your body is handling stress. You’ll need to tap into Fitbit Premium to get a full breakdown, however.
