The Fitbit Luxe , which currently holds our number one spot as better Fitbit , gets two new features: always-on display and the ability to view data blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) in the Health Metrics section of the Fitbit app. Both of these features are enabled with firmware update 1.151.16.
Once you receive the update your blood oxygen data will be visible in the dashboard Health Metrics from the Fitbit mobile app, but keep in mind that unlike some data fitness trackers and running watches , your Luxe will only measure SpO2 while you sleep; you can't do spot checks throughout the day.
To use, wear your Luxe all day, including night, with the holster snug against your wrist. In the morning, open the Fitbit app and you'll see your SpO2 trends in the Health Measurements tile.
As the Fitbit notes itself, this data is for personal use only and cannot be invoked. diagnose any health problem, but it makes for interesting read and if you notice that your SpO2 levels drop particularly low overnight, it may be worthwhile to set up a chat with your doctor to discuss it.
The Fitbit Charge 5 includes on-board GPS, an EDA (electrodermal activity) sensor to track changes in stress levels, and an ECG sensor, but one of its most famous new features was its power mode. permanent display. Like Wareable reports, this feature is now also available on Fitbit Luxe, which makes it easy to see the time, your current step count, and workout stats without lifting your wrist to wake up the screen.
The Fitbit Luxe has an AMOLED display particularly attractive and lively, so it is a real godsend, but keep in mind that its use will significantly reduce the service lifeyour watch's battery. The exact impact will depend on how long you use it, and to save some power you can choose to keep the screen on only between certain hours.
If you have a Fitbit Premium subion, another new feature will be coming to your wrist very soon: the Daily Readiness Score, which will be available for the Fitbit Luxe, Charge 5, Versa 3 , Versa 2 , Sense , and Inspire 2 .
Wear your Fitbit all day and night, and in the morning, a number will tell you when you are at restbased on your activity history, heart rate variability and sleep score.
