Fitbit could also be able to launch a brand new health tracker quickly, if pictures published by WinFuture are to be believed. The brand new tracker is outwardly named Luxe and contains a extra fashion-centric design than Fitbit’s existing Inspire 2. It’s not clear when the Luxe will probably be launched or how a lot it’ll value, however I’d not be shocked if it has a better price ticket than the $100 Encourage 2.
The massive improve for the Luxe is a brand new chrome steel physique, which will probably be accessible in silver, gold, or black finishes. It additionally has a shade OLED touchscreen, although WinFuture didn’t present specs or detailed details about it. Each the chrome steel physique and the colour display screen are upgrades over the plastic and monochrome choices on the Encourage 2.
The Luxe is anticipated to have a coronary heart fee monitor, sleep monitoring, and all the exercise monitoring options that Fitbit’s different wearables assist. It’s not prone to have a GPS radio of its personal, nevertheless — you’ll in all probability must have your cellphone with you for correct mapping of your runs. Along with the physique colours, WinFuture’s pictures present numerous strap shade choices, so it’s possible Fitbit will place this as a lot of a trend accent as a health system.
Fitbit, which is now owned by Google, constructed its model on wrist-worn health trackers, and it seems to be just like the Luxe could be very a lot in that vein. The corporate has had much less success producing a competent smartwatch, however maybe it will probably inject some life into Google’s flailing smartwatch platform as soon as the businesses totally merge their assets.
