Fitbit Luxe features a stainless-steel housing, an interchangeable classic buckle strap, and an organic electroluminescent diode (OLED) display. Other details about the display are currently unclear.

According to sources, the Fitbit Luxe will also provide heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, activity tracking, stress monitoring among other features. It will support several workouts and will include heart rate vibration alerts. The Fitbit Luxe is also expected to have GPS and water resistance, allowing it to be worn when swimming.

Fitbit launched the Fitbit Ace 3, a fitness tracker for kids, last month. It has a touchscreen PMOLED display and a battery life of up to eight days on a single charge. It is water-resistant up to 50 meters, making it suitable for light swimming sessions, and offers all-day activity tracking. The Fitbit Ace 3 is the first product to be released following Google’s acquisition of Fitbit for $2.1 billion.
