The Fitbit Luxe helps you manage your stress levels — and look good doing so

Fitbit Luxe Fitness & Wellness Tracker: Style That Moves With You

Spring is here, and with the warmer temperatures comes more opportunity to get outside and get in shape. In that spirit, Fitbit has announced the Luxe, a fashion-focused fitness tracker that will help you reach your weight loss and fitness goals — all while looking stylish in the process.

One of the main points the Luxe addresses is stress. Since the start of the pandemic last year, studies have found that more than 50% of people have felt the physical impact of stress on their body — higher heart rates, fatigue, irritability, and more. The Fitbit Luxe makes stress management tools available to users around the globe. It provides a Stress Management Score for a daily assessment of your body’s ability to handle stress.

The Luxe tracks a wide variety of other metrics to help you measure your overall health, including breathing rate, heart rate variability, resting heart rate, skin temperature variation, and even oxygen saturation. By tracking these metrics over time, you will determine personal baseline . A sudden change in any of these numbers could indicate a cold, or maybe that you need to take a break and unwind.

The Luxe also tracks your Sleep Score, a metric that helps you understand how well you sleep each night. You can also get nightly reminders to help you to go to bed at the same time to create a more consistent routine. Unlike many fitness trackers, the Luxe is designed for comfort. In other words, your sleep won’t be disrupted because of something on your wrist.


The Luxe also comes included with a six month trial of Fitbit Premium, so you have access to even more detailed information including nutrition content and curated recipe lists. That’s on top of tracking your food and water intake, as well as your weight, and women can even track menstrual cycles.

Of course, the Fitbit Luxe also tracks your heart rate and movement to provide you with information related to your workouts and exercise goals. There are more than 20 different on-wrist exercise modes to choose from, including golf, Pilates, and tennis. Connected GPS provides you with pace and distance information for those long runs when a user’s phone is nearby.


The Fitbit Luxe is available for pre-order today from and other major retailers for $150, which includes six months of Fitbit Premium. After this six-month period, Premium costs $10 per month, or $80 annually.

Usually $279, this Nike edition of the Apple Watch is $129 today
The Apple Watch SE 2 with Nike Bounce watch face.

The first generation of the Apple Watch SE was one of the best smartwatches of the time, not only because of its reasonably great specs but also because it was the cheapest Apple smartwatch you could buy. It gave you access to Apple's ecosystem and a great companion to an iPhone without having to spend several hundred dollars to do so. Of course, while there's been a new release of the Watch SE since then, the original SE remains a strong contender for a great budget-friendly Apple smartwatch.

Even better, there's a great sale going on right now at Walmart for the very fine-looking 40mm Nike Edition of the Apple Watch SE first gen. You can grab it for just $129, rather than the usual $149, which is a nice $20 in savings while still getting a gorgeous-looking watch.

Save $1,120 on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 with this deal
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 display.

Samsung was the first company to bring foldable phones into the market, and while there have been a lot of other offerings from various companies, Samsung's foldables still remain at the head of the pack. In fact, one of the best foldables on the market is currently the Galaxy Z Fold 5. While it isn't as big of an upgrade compared to the Fold 4, if you're entering the foldable market for the first time and want to get the best, then the Fold 5 is the foldable to go for, especially if you're already integrated into Samsung's ecosystem.

That said, the best of the best can be very expensive, and that's true of the Fold 5. Luckily, there's a great deal directly from Samsung wherein you can save up to $1,000 worth of trade-in credit, as well as a storage upgrade from 256GB to 512GB, which is worth around $120. Even better, if you don't have or want to trade in, you can still take advantage of the storage upgrade, which is excellent since the Fold 5 doesn't have expandable storage.

The best iPhone 15 screen protectors in 2023: 10 great buys
A view of the USB-C port on the green iPhone 15.

The iPhone 15 lineup has landed, boasting exciting new features like significantly improved cameras and brighter screens on the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus and a sleek new titanium frame and powerful Action button for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

As usual, Apple has equipped all of its iPhone 15 models with Ceramic Shield glass, which has proven tough enough to withstand most drops and impacts. This could lead you to believe you don't really need a screen protector, and you may be partially right — at least when it comes to protecting your screen against cracks. However, it's challenging to create glass that's both highly durable against impacts and resistant against scratches, and Apple's Ceramic Shield definitely leans toward the former.
