Fitbit Luxe is getting updated with two of Charge 5's most useful features

Until now, the Charge 5 was the only Fitbit fitness tracker to have an always-on display.

What you need to know

  • Fitbit is rolling out a new firmware update for the Luxe.
  • The update adds AOD support to the premium fitness tracker.
  • Fitbit Luxe can also now track your blood oxygen saturation while you sleep.

The Fitbit Luxe, which is one of the company's best fitness trackers, has started receiving a new firmware update.

According to 9to5Google, the latest v1.151.16 update finally brings always-on display support to the wearable. Once you install the new update on your Fitbit Luxe, you'll be able to enable the always-on display mode by opening the Settings app and heading over to Display settings > Always-on display. You can even set "Off-hours" if you want the feature to work on a schedule.

In addition to making the "clock visible at all times," the AOD function works with timers and also when you're working out. Another new addition is support for blood oxygen saturation tracking while you're sleeping.

You can view the data collected by the tracker in the SpO2 tile when you swipe up from the clock face. Alternatively, you can access it from the Health Metrics tile in the Fitbit app on both Android and iOS devices.

The latest firmware update also brings an increase in font size, some bug fixes, and other improvements. To check for the update manually, open the Fitbit app on your phone and tap on your profile. If the update is available for your device, you should see a pink banner when you select your device.

Announced in April this year, the Fitbit Luxe is a fitness tracker that has been designed for fashion-conscious consumers.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
