Stylish activity bracelet

The Fitbit Luxe is an introduction aimed at the female audience looking for a discreet and upscale band.

Limit your efforts, monitor your sleep or motivate yourself to walk more. The beginning of the school year is accompanied by new good habits that must be followed or continued. The stylish and discreet Fitbit Luxe can be a serious ally in this adventure. Designed by one of the pioneers in the sector, this activity bracelet meets the specifications of the 2021 device capable of measuring heart rate, oxygen saturation or sleep cycles. Featuring a refined, jewel-inspired design, it visibly changes the connecting rectangular bracelets. Luxe won’t make a difference with its cheaper competitors often on its small screen or its 5-6 day battery life, but thanks to the well-thought-out Fitbit app loaded with powerful analytics.

Google’s acquisition of Fitbit makes pairing with Android smartphones easier. Be warned, it doesn’t integrate a GPS chip unlike its cousin, the Charge 4, which we recommend to athletes.

The lightest and most practical stick vacuum cleaners continue to innovate with sometimes surprising, but well-thought-out functions. In the new Detect range, leading British company Dyson has integrated a laser on its soft brush to illuminate dust and other small debris.

We tested it on V15 Detect Absolute. A bit far from the futuristic tool, we end up cleaning areas that at first glance looked clean but hold some microscopic dirt. The vacuum cleaner display also provides accurate counts of collected particles and categorized by size, distinguishing allergens from dust mites, to give a sense of duty done. Like its predecessors, the device is impeccable in its suction and filter system and its particular maintenance. It is always enough to empty it into the trash thanks to the innovative system for emptying the collector.

The device’s sensors always allow you to adapt the suction power to the amount of dust it attacks. On the other hand, you may benefit from it being lighter for longer cleaning sessions, and the boost mode – not necessary for a small weekly maintenance – drains the battery easily.
