2020 was the year our lives were tipped upside down and, in some case, given a shake up. As a result, 2021 has been a catalyst of change for most of us and one of the biggest changes has been how we approach our overall wellbeing. Covid-19 has changed the way we eat, workout, our self-care, and the wellness products we have incorporated into our daily routine. Sales of wellness tech has boomed and as the world slowly reopens, we are now more than ever, looking for ways to proactively get on top of our wellness game.
The Fitbit Luxe is the newest addition to the brand, designed to help you take a more holistic approach to your health and wellness. Luxe offers both the support and motivation you need to stay healthy in today’s world with everything from stress management tools to automatic activity and sleep tracking – all in an effortlessly chic bracelet design.
Get an insight into your wellbeing through the Health Metrics dashboard in the Fitbit app to help you identify changes in your breathing rate and heart rate variability, which could be caused by increased stress or fatigue. With Luxe, you get six-months of Fitbit Premium which gives you access to a range of workouts and nearly 200 mindfulness sessions from popular brands to manage stress. This includes Deepak Chopra’s Mindful Method, an exclusive wellness collection with more than 30 sessions to make mindfulness more accessible.
If the thought of readjusting your everyday routine or retuning to office is leaving you feeling stressed or anxious you can proactively manage it through the Stress Management Score function. This provides a daily assessment of your body’s ability to handle stress based on your activity levels, sleep and heart rate.
Keeping physically fit is a key component of overall health, but for most people, COVID-19 has changed exercise routines. With 24/7 heart rate tracking that powers many of the watch’s health, wellness and fitness tools, you can track your daily heart rate in real-time to better measure your calorie burn. You can also choose from 20 different on-wrist exercise modes including golf, pilates, spinning or tennis and for those who prefer running, biking or hiking outside, you can use connected GPS from your phone to see real-time pace and distance. If you love a home training session you can try out more than 200 guided audio and video workouts from certified personal trainers and popular brands like Aaaptiv, barre3 and POPSUGAR to name a few.
If your sleep patterns are out of sync the Sleep Core function will help you better understand your sleep quality. It also has bedtime reminders so you can establish a more consistent routine. Both light and slim, Luxe is designed for maximum comfort, making it easy to wear nightly to manage your sleep.
Additional health tools include food, hydration and weight logging, and menstrual health tracking. There is 60 new pieces of nutrition content including curated healthy recipes from Fitbit and EatingWell. The new blood glucose logging feature in the app allows you to track your blood glucose levels to see how they change throughout the day.
This piece of arm candy ticks all the boxes when it comes to health and wellness solutions. Using smart tech like Fitbit will allow you to maintain your overall wellbeing and where necessary, make adjustments to feel more positive at home and work. Small changes to your daily wellness habits can often have the biggest impact as they are easy to maintain. Poor mental health can have a huge influence on your performance and overall happiness.
