Fitbit announced Fitbit Luxe™, a fashion-forward fitness and wellness tracker designed to help you take a more holistic approach to your health and wellness. Luxe offers the motivation and support 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. Luxe also gives you insights into your wellbeing through the Health Metrics dashboard in the Fitbit app to help you identify changes which could be caused by increased stress or fatigue. With Luxe, you’ll get six-months of Fitbit Premium for added support and deeper analysis of your data. Luxe is a beautiful, sleek tracker with a color touchscreen and up to five days of battery life. It can be paired with a wide range of stylish accessories including a modern luxury bracelet from gorjana. Luxe will be available worldwide starting this spring.
“Over the past year, we’ve had to think differently about our health – from keeping an eye out for possible COVID-19 symptoms to managing the ongoing stress and anxiety of today’s world. Even though we are starting to see positive changes, it has never been more important to manage your holistic health,” said James Park, VP, GM and Co-Founder of Fitbit. “That’s why we’ve been resolute in introducing products to support you in staying mentally well and physically active. We’ve made major technological advancements with Luxe, creating a smaller, slimmer, beautifully designed tracker packed with advanced features – some that were previously only available with our smartwatches – making these tools accessible to even more people around the globe.”
Understand and manage your stress for your overall wellbeing
After the pandemic began, a survey found that 50 percent of people felt the physical and mental effects of stress. With Luxe, Fitbit is making its relevant stress management tools available to millions more users around the globe by bringing them to trackers for the first time. Now available with Luxe and all available heart-rate enabled devices, Fitbit’s Stress Management Score provides a daily assessment of your body’s ability to handle stress based on your activity levels, sleep and heart rate.
As a Fitbit Premium member, you get a detailed breakdown of your Stress Management Score including information on your exertion, sleep patterns and responsiveness. Premium members also have access to a range of workouts and nearly 200 mindfulness sessions from popular brands like Aaptiv, Aura, Breethe and Ten Percent Happier to manage stress. This includes Deepak Chopra’s Mindful Method, an exclusive wellness collection created for Premium with more than 30 sessions to make a mindfulness practice more accessible. Fitbit is introducing four new sessions to Mindful Method, focused on bringing the power of mindful awareness to many real-life situations.
“I share Fitbit’s belief that mindfulness and mental wellbeing are an important part of our holistic health, and by better managing your emotional wellbeing, it can help make a positive lasting impact on your overall health, including better sleep, improved mood and more meaningful personal relationships,” said Deepak Chopra, M.D., Pioneer of Integrative Medicine, and Founder of The Chopra Foundation and Chopra Global. “For example, I regularly see my heart rate lower after doing a meditation session and over time, my heart rate variability trends have improved. Mindful Method makes a regular mindfulness practice easy and accessible – no matter whether you are learning how to begin or are interested in taking your mindfulness practice to the next level.”
Insightful tools to understand and manage your health and wellness
Luxe gives you access to Fitbit’s wide range of health and wellness features to support a holistic approach to healthy living. Get insights into your wellbeing in the Fitbit app with the Health Metrics dashboard which tracks your breathing rate, heart rate variability (HRV), resting heart rate (RHR), skin temperature variation and coming soon, oxygen saturation (SpO2). For example, by looking at your weekly HRV and RHR, you may be able to see when there is a sudden change, which could be a sign of stress, fatigue or a cold. Plus, Premium lets you track your monthly trends and personal ranges, highlighting when one of your metrics is out of range.
With a light, slim form factor, Luxe is designed for maximum comfort, making it easy to wear nightly to manage your sleep. Sleep Score helps you better understand your sleep quality, and bedtime reminders can help you establish a more consistent sleep routine. Premium members can view deeper sleep analytics, and some will see feature tests as Fitbit works to expand its future offerings to give even more personalized guidance based on your sleep patterns.
Additional health tools include food, hydration and weight logging, and menstrual health tracking. Premium members have access to more than 60 new pieces of nutrition content including curated healthy recipes from Fitbit and Eating Well magazine. The new blood glucose logging feature in the Fitbit app allows you to track your blood glucose levels to see how they change throughout the day.
Stay motivated to reach your fitness goals
Physical activity is a key component of overall health, but for most people, COVID-19 changed exercise routines. With 24/7 heart rate tracking that powers many of Fitbit’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. With Premium, access more than 200 guided audio and video workouts from certified personal trainers and popular brands like Aaptiv, barre3, Daily Burn, obé and POPSUGAR.
Use Active Zone Minutes, a personalized standard for tracking activity beyond steps that measures your time spent in each heart rate zone, to gauge when to push harder or scale back, and it helps you reach the weekly recommended goal of 150 Active Zone Minutes to help improve your health. Reminders to Move will help encourage you to stay active and reduce sedentary time, and you can access challenges and games with Premium to make reaching your goals more fun.
Stay connected throughout your daily routine
In addition to all the health and fitness features, Luxe has key convenience and smart features like alarms, a stopwatch and timers to help you manage your day, all with up to five days of battery life. Stay connected and up-to-date with customizable call, text and smartphone notifications, and set bedtime reminders or use do not disturb when it’s time to focus. Luxe’s broad compatibility with Android and iOS phones, plus Google Fast Pair, makes it easy to get moving while staying connected.
An elegant wearable that feels at home on your wrist
Luxe’s breakthrough design has a soft, gentle shape inspired by the human body that sits lightly on your wrist with a jewellery-like look and feel. Fitbit applied a modern take on traditional jewellery-making techniques using an innovative design process called metal injection molding to create Luxe’s stainless steel case, providing the warmth expected of handcrafted jewellery, all while delivering a level of precision needed to enable its advanced sensor technology. The result is one of Fitbit’s most fashionable and comfortable devices yet, designed for a diverse range of wrist sizes for 24/7 wear. To produce the high polish synonymous with jewellery, Fitbit used a metal vaporizing technique on the soft gold and platinum finishes to provide a truly premium look and feel.
Fitbit partnered with Laguna Beach-based jewellery brand gorjana to further elevate Luxe’s style. The gorjana for Fitbit Luxe Special Edition transforms the tracker into a beautiful piece of jewellery with the Parker Link Bracelet in soft gold stainless steel, and a swimproof classic silicone peony band. Choose from a wide-range of fashionable and versatile Fitbit accessories, including comfortable classic silicone, woven, or the gorjana Parker Link Bracelet in soft gold stainless steel.
With a sleek buttonless design, Luxe is Fitbit’s thinnest touchscreen tracker to-date, with a variety of vibrant new clock faces on the first Fitbit tracker with a color screen. Luxe’s intuitive swipe and tap functionality gives you easy access to your daily stats, notifications, and core health and fitness features.

Luxe will be available in India soon at Fitbit.com/in and major retailers, with worldwide availability this spring. Luxe retails for ₹10,999 (INR) with six-months of Fitbit Premium free trial.

Charge Your Android Phone Wirelessly with Realme MagDart
Realme launches MagDart, the first magnetic wireless charging solution for Android. The solution includes the world’s fastest 50W magnetic wireless charger, realme Flash, the first Android smartphone that supports magnetic wireless charging, and several other magnetic charging accessories. realme aims to be a pioneer in the magnetic wireless charging ecosystem.
realme Flash, the first Android smartphone that supports magnetic wireless charging
realme first concept phone, realme Flash, features a 4500mAh battery capacity and can support up to 50W of MagDart wireless charging, which can charge the battery from 0 to 100% in less than an hour, nearly the same as realme 50W SuperDart wired charger.
50W MagDart Charger, world’s fastest magnetic wireless charger
The 50W MagDart charger features an active air cooling system that keeps the mainboard and coil temperatures at a reasonable level with a compact and powerful fan that can quickly remove heat by drawing a large airflow into the charger so that it can maintain the charging power at a high level for a longer time.
15W MagDart Charger, the thinnest magnetic wireless charger
The 15W MagDart Charger is only 3.9mm, 26.4% thinner than the MagSafe Charger, but it is still faster than MagSafe due to its Separated Coil & Board design. It sets the mainboard and the coil at the two ends of the charging plug and the charging pad respectively, thus making the charging pad thin with only one charging coil. And it separates these two sources of heat generation, thus reducing the heat generation situation and thus providing longer high power charging hours, which can charge the 4500mAh battery from 0 to 100% in 90 mins, much faster than the rival product.
2-in-1 MagDart Power Bank
There is a MagDart Power Bank and a special charging base. The two can be paired together to become a vertical charging station. The phone can get charged from the power bank, and the base can charge the battery bank at the same time. If you need to charge on the go, the power bank can be pulled up and attached to the smartphone. For the design, the power bank uses white vegan leather and aluminum.
MagDart ecosystem accessories
MagDart Beauty Light is designed for portrait photography. It can be easily connected to the phone via MagDart and powered via smartphone reverse charging to provide an extra flashlight when taking selfies.
The MagDart wallet can be turned into a kickstand to hold the phone up when watching movies or making video calls. It’s able to hold three standard credit cards.
Realme GT MagDart Charging Case can enable realme GT compatible with MagDart. This case connects through the Type-C connector and allows the phone to be charged wirelessly via the MagDart technology.
Realme has always been bringing leap-forward technology to global young users. In July 2020, realme introduced the world’s leading 125W SuperDart. This MagDart will bring magnetic wireless charging to a new speed era.
Increase Your Productivity with Canon’s New Ink Tank Printers
Canon India launched the MAXIFY GX7070 and MAXIFY GX6070 ink tank printers to meet high volume demands for color printing across small and mid-size offices. With water-resistant, fast printing and flexible paper handling, the two new printers are designed to combine productivity and laser printer-like efficiency and enable users to increase business productivity.
Sharing his thoughts on the announcement, Mr. Manabu Yamazaki, President and CEO, Canon India said, “India has been one of the most important markets for Canon’s printing business, having received a huge acceptance for our ink tank printers amongst all customers. It has been our constant endeavour to bring forth the latest technological innovations, catering to diverse and evolving demands of our customers. Continuing the momentum in 2021, we have introduced 13 models of ink tank printers so far, bringing our customers the most innovative, cost effective and productive solutions. As we continue to grow stronger, we are proud to extend the ink tank technology to our flagship MAXIFY series, reinforcing our commitment to the growth of small businesses in the country. We are optimistic that the new MAXIFY range of printers will boost efficiency for small and mid-sized businesses, along with reinventing their printing experience at utmost utility value.”
Designed to enhance ease of use, convenience, and productivity for end-users, the new MAXIFY printers offer a brilliant amalgamation of next-level modern technology and cost optimization. It further contributes to a low total of ownership with increased efficiency thus making it an essential part of office functioning.
Speaking about the new products, Mr. C Sukumaran, Director, Consumer System Products & Imaging Communication Business highlighted, “As the entrepreneurship culture continues to grow in the country, SMEs and SOHOs are looking at strengthening their workflow to scale their business further. At Canon, we want to play an important role in their growth journey by providing them with innovative products in line with their requirements. We are seeing a greater adoption of mobile and cloud printing amongst small businesses, along with the increasing demand for high volume color printing. Addressing such demands, our new range of MAXIFY printers utilizes a high-volume continuous ink supply system which significantly reduces ink costs for color printing. These printers will help small set-ups streamline their printing infrastructure and increase employee productivity by leveraging the high volume efficient color printing feature.”
High Yield Ink Bottles with Low Colour Printing Costs
Large ink tanks and high-volume ink bottles significantly reduce ink costs for both monochrome and colour printing. A full set of ink delivers approximately 6,000 grayscale pages and 14,000 pages in colour.
For businesses that need to print even more without compromising on quality and text legibility, an Economy mode setting pushes output to 9,000 and 21,000 pages of grayscale and colour respectively. Businesses can now print colour pages whenever the need arises without having to worry about the cost.
The ability to print on a variety of textures and print surfaces also ensures businesses do not need to buy different printers when there is a need to switch between envelopes, labels, glossy paper, and banner paper. This versatility makes the MAXIFY GX7070 and MAXIFY GX6070 a remarkable flexible print workhorse suitable for all types of printing.
Water Resistant Documents Resist Smudging and Accidental Water Spills
The use of pigment inks delivers water-resistant document prints on plain paper, lending a laser print-like quality not found in conventional inkjet printers. Text, colour bars, and charts will resist smudging when in contact with highlighter pens, while rain splashes and accidental water spills can dry out without colour bleeding and destruction to printed content.
Increasing Business Efficiency and Productivity
The MAXIFY GX7070 and MAXIFY GX6070 are packed with features that prioritize productivity and efficiency for busy offices and businesses. With duplex (automatic two-sided) printing, combined with large paper cassettes, less time is spent to replenish paper supplies.
Both printers come with an automatic document feeder (ADF). Together with the convenience of a front-USB port, users can load up to 50 sheets of document originals on the ADF to be duplicated or scanned into digital storage, on their computers, USB-removable storage, and even into mobile devices like smartphones and tablet PCs. On the MAXIFY GX7070, there is an additional bonus in single-pass duplex scanning, where both sides of a two-sided document can be scanned in a single paper pass. The MAXIFY GX7070 has a maximum paper loading capacity of 600 sheets while the MAXIFY GX6070 has a maximum paper loading capacity of 350 sheets.
The MAXIFY GX7070 and MAXIFY GX6070 also feature a game-changing modular, user-replaceable maintenance cartridge that can be obtained over the counter in retail. The benefits of this design are twofold: minimizing device downtime when faced with the daunting prospect of a large number of prints yet to be completed, and the removal of the need to schedule a service visit or to carry the printer to the nearest service centre.
Stay Connected All the Time
The MAXIFY GX7070 and MAXIFY GX6070 are built with modern businesses and home offices in mind, flexible enough to be placed anywhere in the office as they come with not just wired network interfaces, but also wireless1 connectivity. Users can setup and operate the printers using the free Canon PRINT Inkjet/ SELPHY mobile app, as well as print from the cloud.

MAXIFY GX6070- INR 47,348.00
