Fitbit Luxe and Charge 5 updated with much-needed new features

Written by admin

Last month Fitbit quietly rolled out an update for Charge 5, one of the most advanced fitness trackers. While it didn’t say anything about what the update should change, we learned that Google’s company has added the ability to find your phone through its fitness tracker.

Today, Fitbit confirmed that the update not only introduced the much-needed feature, but also added a few watch faces. The above image shows a watch face in two color variations – Boom, plus an additional watch face for another Fitbit wearable device, the Luxe.

Just to be clear, Fitbit Luxe owners get all three watch faces, while Charge 5 only gets the Tree dial available in two versions. In addition to these new customization options, Luxe users will also be able to find their phones through the wearable, just like the Charge 5.

To do that, you’ll need to install the new Find Phone app, open it on your tracker, tap Find Phone and your phone should start ringing loudly even if it’s set to DnD (Do Not Disturb) mode. Once you’ve found your phone, you can tap Cancel to stop it from ringing.

Fitbit says the update is now available, though Charge 5 users may have picked this up over a week ago when it first popped up.
