Fitbit announced the Fitbit Luxe on 19 April, a slim, stylish fitness tracker for the fashion conscious. The Luxe is jewelry-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. The Fitbit Luxe is now available to pre-order from a few retailers.
Here we're looking at everything you need to know about the Fitbit Luxe, including cost, features, and where you can buy one today.
When is the Fitbit Luxe release date?
The Fitbit Luxe and Fitbit Luxe Special Edition are now available to pre-order from Fitbit. The standard Luxe ships in June (though Fitbit originally stated a late May shipping date) and the Special Edition Luxe ships from July, a delay from the original mid-June schedule.
Where to buy the Fitbit Luxe
Amazon has announced it will have Fibit deals over Prime Day though it hasn't confirmed which devices. Sign up for the 30-day free trial to Amazon Prime so you don't miss out on any offers if they're announced.
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 ther 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/Platnium 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.
A notable feature arriving on the Luxe is oxygen saturation (SpO2) monitoring, which you'll also find on the Versa 3 and Sense smartwatches and the Charge 4 tracker. Learn more about the Fitbit Luxe in our launch coverage.
