Over the past year, we’ve had to think differently about our health and well-being, from monitoring possible COVID-19 symptoms to managing the stress and anxiety that characterize our everyday life. While we are starting to see changes that inspire us with hope, it has never been more important to take care of our holistic health.That’s why we have redoubled our efforts to introduce innovative tools and advanced data to support our users in managing psychophysical wellbeing. We’ve made great technological advances with Luxe, creating a smaller, thinner, beautifully designed tracker with advanced features – some of which were previously only available on our smartwatches – to bring these tools to even more people around the world.

Understanding and managing stress to live a healthier life

After the pandemic began, a survey confirmed that 50% of people felt the physical and mental effects of stress. With Luxe, Fitbit is now making its important management tools available to millions of users around the world, bringing them to trackers for the first time. Now available on Luxe and all Fitbit heart rate devices, the Stress Management Score designed by Fitbit, it offers a daily assessment that helps you understand how your body reacts to stress based on activity levels, sleep patterns and heart rate.

In addition, with Fitbit Premium, you can access a detailed analysis of your Stress Management Score, which includes information on your effort, sleep trends and responsiveness. Premium members also have access to a variety of workouts and approximately 200 relaxation sessions to manage stress of popular brands such as Aaptiv, Aura, Breethe and Ten Percent Happier. The Mindful Method by Deepak Chopra, an exclusive collection of wellness content created and curated for Premium members with over 30 sessions that make relaxation practice even more accessible for all. Fitbit is introducing 4 new Mindful Method sessions, aimed at bringing the power of awareness to many real-life situations.

I share Fitbit’s belief that relaxation and mental well-being are an important part of our holistic health – by better managing emotional well-being, you can experience a positive and lasting impact on overall health, including more restful sleep, better mood. and more meaningful personal relationships. For example, I regularly see my heart rate drop after completing a relaxation session and, over time, trends in heart rate variability have also improved. The Mindful Method allows you to follow a regular relaxation practice in an easy and accessible way – no matter if you are taking the first steps in this field or if you want to take your practice to the next level.

Fitbit Luxe gives you access to the wide range of Fitbit health and fitness features designed to support your holistic approach to a healthier life. In particular, the Health Metrics panel allows you to track changes in your state of well-being on the Fitbit app with data that use the breath frequency, the heart rate variability (HRV), the heart rate at rest (RHR), the skin temperature and, soon, the oxygen saturation (SpO2). For example, by analyzing daily changes in HRV and RHR metrics, it is possible to see when there is a sudden change in the body, which can be a sign of stress, fatigue or even a cold. Additionally, Premium allows you to track monthly trends and personal intervals, and shows when any of the metrics are out of range.

Thanks to its lightweight and slim design, Luxe is designed to be comfortably worn all day and overnight, to record and track sleep trends. Sleep Score helps you better understand your sleep quality over time, and bedtime reminders can help you develop a more regular sleep routine. Premium members can also view more in-depth analytics, and some users will get early access to even more advanced features that will be rolled out at scale in the future, with the aim of offering even more personalized and trend-based sleep recommendations.

But that’s not all: the additional wellness tools include the recording of foods eaten, hydration level and weight, as well as monitoring female health. And Premium members get access to over 60 new nutritional content including healthy recipes curated by Fitbit and Eating Well magazine.

The result is one of Fitbit’s most stylish and comfortable devices, designed for a wide range of wrist sizes and skin tones, as well as limitless daily use.
