In a big upgrade, Fitbit Luxe gains additional functions.

Fitbit has launched a major update to the Fitbit Luxe and has launched a handful of new features with version 1.151.16.
Some of these features are carried over from the flagship Charge 5 that was introduced just a few weeks ago.
The Fitbit Luxe, for starters, will receive an always-on display. While this will reduce Luxe's 5-day battery life, it does ensure that the clock will always be displayed.
There are also techniques to lessen the impact. The always-on display can simply be turned on and off in the settings and it may also be restricted to a certain time of day, such as during working hours. The next major upgrade might be even more significant. Within the Health Metrics dashboard, the Fitbit Luxe can now calculate the blood oxygen saturation score using the SpO2 sensor.
This, along with resting heart rate, HRV, and breathing rate, was not visible to Luxe owners. If they use the SpO2 watch face, the percentage of blood oxygen saturation will display as well.
That's on top of the blood oxygen fluctuation throughout sleep, which has been there in the sleep tracking data since the beginning. This, however, does not provide a measurable amount of saturation.
Finally, the Fitbit Luxe's font size may be raised to make notifications and on-screen info more visible but you'll receive less text on the tiny screen.
The additional features add more strings to the Luxe's bow, which is a fantastic fitness tracker that is far simpler to suggest than the new Charge 5. It's less expensive, has a more organised collection of functions, and is better suited to smaller wrists.
This update may take a few days to emerge, but it's one you won't want to miss.
