Fitbit has announced the new Fitbit Luxe fitness tracker — which is meant to provide a more fashion-forward fitness device for consumers — along with a local price for South Africa.
The company unveiled the new device on 19 April, revealing a bracelet design as well as different colour palettes for the device.
In terms of existing devices, it looks most visually similar to the Fitbit Inspire 2. But it has a sleeker design and aesthetic.
The new product can track sleep, heart rate, stress, and activity. The device also features a colour touchscreen with up to five days of battery life.
“We’ve made major technological advancements with Luxe, creating a smaller, slimmer, beautifully designed tracker packed with these advanced features – some that were previously only available with our smartwatches – and providing access to these tools to even more people around the globe,” James Park, VP, GM and Co-Founder of Fitbit, said in a statement.
According to the company, it’s also Fitbit’s thinnest touchscreen tracker to date.
Those who purchase the device will also receive a six-month trial of Fitbit Premium.
In terms of style choices, there are numerous colour variants. The company also introduced a luxury bracelet version — the Fitbit Luxe Special Edition — from Gorjana.
