Case and connectivity – AMOLED with automatic brightness

With the Luxe, Fitbit has expanded its range of fitness trackers. These currently include the Inspire 2, the Charge 4, and the Ace series for children. In terms of looks and functionality, the Luxe is most similar to the Inspire 2, which is 50 Euros cheaper (~$59). The latter's case is made of plastic, and the display is a grayscale OLED like on the Charge 4. The Luxe has a color AMOLED that automatically adjusts its brightness to the ambient light. The case is made of gold-, platinum- or graphite-colored stainless steel, while the buckle of the silicone bands is made of anodized aluminum. They have a special strap connector, but they can be interchanged. The Special Edition of the Luxe already comes with a replacement band; the standard band in this case is a gold-colored link bracelet, for which Fitbit has partnered with the jewelry brand gorjana.

Both the Inspire 2 and the Luxe are water-resistant to 50 meters. Fitbit enhances the Inspire 2's optical heart rate sensor by allowing it to measure blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) on the Luxe. Fitbit states 10 days of battery life for the Inspire 2 and 5 for the Luxe. One feature of the Inspire 2 that the Luxe is missing is the Tile technology, which allows you to find the Inspire 2 again if you don't remember where you last placed it.

Fitbit doesn't disclose the storage capacity. However, the specifications for the Luxe and the Inspire 2 coincide: According to these, both store the daily data for a total of 30 days as well as detailed minute-by-minute movement data for a period of seven days. This is relevant, for example, if you don't synchronize the fitness trackers regularly. On the tracker itself, you can only see the data for the current day in any case.
