The Fitbit Luxe which launched this April is receiving its first major update in the major countries. The Always-on display & SpO2 features arrived at the fitness band six months after its launching. The Always-on display is first introduced on Fitbit Charge 5. With the AOD, it will become easy to save battery life, and put a screen ON while in exercises to see essential information. It also lets you choose the “Off Hour” option to select it in a given schedule. The font size has been increased for the fitness tracker.
The blood oxygen level or SpO2 function has been unlocked on the Luxe. Promised at launch, the SpO2 sensor will track the blood oxygen while in sleep. The function is the part of every Fitbit smartwatches & fitness tracker since the beginning of 2020, and now, the Fitbit Luxe has received it.
To use the function, use the SpO2 tile in the watch face section or the Health Metrics tab in the Fitbit app.
The firmware version 1.151.16 for Fitbit Luxe has been released in major countries including the US & Europe. For unchecked updates, open the Fitbit app, and check for new software.
The Fitbit Luxe has a bangle-like design and comes with a colored display. The newer Charge 5 has more features like a larger display, in-built GPS, NFC for payment, ECG & Skin temperature functions, though it cost $30 more.
