Fitbit Luxe – News, Prices and Availability
Fitbit will launch the Luxe soon – at least if you believe the rumors that spread across the internet last week. The fitness tracker comes with an OLED display and a case made of stainless steel. In addition to rumors and leaked images, I have additional information concerning the availability and prices – for both standard and special edition.
According to a report by WinFuture Fitbit is moving forward to unveil another wearable. You’ll find a couple of images on WinFuture’s website, which I won’t republish here for the time being. A lot of online magazines have spread the news lately but none was able to figure out the price and date of availability. You’ll find these missing information here.
Fitbit Luxe - Standard and Special Edition
Scanning the leaked images, the Fitbit Luxe looks like revamped version of the Inspire 2. Though the case is made of stainless steel and though it got the rounded corners of Fitbit’s Versa 3 / Sense, the general appearance isn’t that different from the Inspire 2. But it doesn’t resemble the Inspire 2 only – its silhouette looks pretty similar to Xiaomi’s MiBand 6 (and almost all the other cheap fitness trackers).
As neither a button nor a soft button can be found on the press renders, my guess is that the Luxe will have a tap / touch sensitive screen.
At launch the following color variants will be available:
- Black / Graphite
- Lunar White / Soft Gold
- Orchid / Platinum
Bands are replaceable due to the Luxe featuring the same quick release as the Versa 3 / Sense. In addition to the basic silicon wristbands, Fitbit will sell other wristbands made of steel and leather and there will be woven ones.
If you prefer a more sophisticated look, you can buy the Luxe Special Edition that Fitbit will present together with the fashion label gorjana. The special edition will be available in
- Soft Gold Steel
- Platinum Steel
The most distinctive part is their golden / platinum braclet (Parker collection). If you’d like to check gorjana’s website, you’ll have to use Google Cache as the company has taken the landing page offline.
Both standard and special edition will have a small color OLED display. My guess is that it is the same display that can be found on the Versa 3 / Sense. If that’s true, the Luxe is going to have a bright and crisp display that could outdo the MiBand 6’s one. To be honest, this is guesswork because Fitbit usually does not give specific information concerning the smaller sized wearable displays.
Fitbit Luxe Features
On the fitness tracker’s back, you will find the heart rate sensors. As the Luxe won’t be a top range product, I won’t expect any innovation here. With this in mind, Fitbit will focus on the Luxe’s stylish look, not the features. Expect the Luxe to have the following features:
- 24/7 Activity Tracking (steps, distance, calories burned, floors)
- Sleep Monitoring
- Active Zone Minutes
- Female Health Tracking
- HR zones
When you will buy the Luxe, you will get a 6 month membership of Fitbit Premium for free. Fitbit Premium allows for more detailled insights but don’t expect any completely new insights other than the existings ones.
Prices and Availability
Information I received reveal that the standard edition will be shipped starting end of May for $149.99 when pre-ordered on Fitbit’s website.
The gorjana special edition will be $199.99 – the shipping date is expected to be mid June.
Taken these shipping dates, the official press release should be within the next weeks.
