When Fitbit announced the launch of Fitbit Luxe in April 2021, I was psyched. “Fashion-forward fitness and wellness tracker”, “effortlessly chic bracelet design”, “jewellery-like look and feel”, “light, slim form factor”, “maximum comfort”… these words spoke to me, as a fitness enthusiast and Fitbit user for the last 8 years who’s constantly looking out for the next sleek model to try.
It’s fair to say that I was won over by the aesthetic of the tracker based on what I saw online, before I knew what it had to offer in terms of functions. Form over function sometimes, right? I’m a watch-loyal person — I hardly switch up my wrist accessory unless I really have to. I also have pretty small wrists and lean towards a feminine look. The fitness watches and trackers that I’ve seen and tried over the years have been too chunky and manly for my liking.
Touted as Fitbit’s thinnest touchscreen tracker to date, the Luxe seemed like The One, so I readily gave it a go as part of an unsponsored media review.
Here are my honest thoughts about the Fitbit Luxe, having worn it for three months now.
