New year, new you …new Fitbit? If you’re looking to start a new fitness regime in 2022, you might want a shiny new gadget on your wrist to keep tabs on the amount of exercise you’re doing, your heart health, sleep quality, and other important metrics when tracking your overall wellness. These gadgets can help to motivate you by pitting you against friends and family in competitions to reach the most steps – challenging you to turn your back on the lift and take the stairs instead. They also come preloaded with guided workouts. If you’re ready to take the plunge, you’ll be pleased to know that Fitbit Luxe has dropped to its lowest ever price on Amazon UK right now, down from £129.95 to £104. Not only do you get the tracker, which can monitor heart rate, sleep, stress levels and swimming, but you’ll unlock 6-months of Fitbit Premium for free too.
Fitbit Luxe is not a smartwatch, so you won’t need to worry about sporting two watches on your wrist. Instead, this svelte little tracker can be worn with a watch. Fitbit offers a number of different colour options and straps to make sure the Luxe fits with your personal style.
But let’s be honest, you’re not buying a Fitbit Luxe for the looks. You’re buying it for the smarts built inside. And the Fitbit Luxe has a truckload of tech tucked inside its small frame. It has the ability to track sleep, including how much light, deep and REM sleep you get and get tips in the Fitbit app to help you improve your overall sleep quality. Your heart rate will be tracked 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The Luxe case design is water-resistant, so you can dive right into the pool or sea and Fitbit will automatically track how long you’ve been swimming.
The small screen can be used to flag incoming calls, text messages, and notifications from smartphone apps, including turn-by-turn directions from Google Maps, order details from Deliveroo or Amazon, and updates from CityMapper and Uber about your journey.

Despite all of this clever tech, Fitbit Luxe still manages to eke out an impressive 5-day battery life. This is one major differentiator from smartwatches, like the Apple Watch and Samsung Galaxy Watch Active, which typically last a single day… with some able to squeak through 48-hours with the right settings.
Fitbit Premium usually costs £7.99 a month and offers in-depth insights into your historic health data, including sleep and stress metrics. It also creates a Daily Readiness score, which is based on your sleep, recovery and the amount of physical exercise you’ve been doing.
