Fitbit could also be able to launch a brand new fitness tracker quickly, if pictures are to be believed. The brand new tracker is seemingly named Luxe and includes a extra fashion-centric design than Fitbit’s . It’s not clear when the Luxe might be launched or how a lot it’ll value, however I’d not be stunned 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 might be out there 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 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 the entire exercise monitoring options that Fitbit’s different wearables assist. It’s not prone to have a GPS radio of its personal, nevertheless — you’ll most likely have to 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 doubtless Fitbit will place this as a lot of a trend accent as a fitness system.
Fitbit, which is , constructed its model on wrist-worn fitness trackers, and it looks just like the Luxe may be very a lot in that vein. The corporate has had much less success , however maybe it could inject some life into Google’s flailing smartwatch platform as soon as the businesses absolutely merge their sources.
