Fitbit has added two features to the Luxe, its latest fitness tracker. Arguably, both should have been present at launch, but their inclusion is welcome, nonetheless.

The Fitbit Luxe already impressed us when we reviewed it in July, even though we lamented its lack of features in some departments. Thankfully, Fitbit has made amends in two areas with the fitness tracker's latest update. According to a forum post, Fitbit has made four adjustments this month, including the usual set of 'big fixes and improvements'.

Increased font size will probably be welcomed by some people too, although Fitbit has not specified what size the Luxe's now is. Regardless, version 1.151.16 also adds SpO2 measurements that allow you to track your blood oxygen saturation levels when asleep. Fitbit has published a guide on tracking SpO2 levels with your Luxe, for reference.

Additionally, this month's update enables always-on display (AoD) functionality. Hence, you no longer need to wake your Luxe to check the time, timers and workout data. Presumably, this should reduce the Luxe's power consumption, thereby improving its battery life too.

Fitbit notes that you must enable AoD in settings after installing the update. The update is rolling out to the Luxe globally now, albeit in phases.
