This time, we will be comparing the Fitbit Luxe vs Inspire 2 and list the key differences between them. So, both smart watches are looking very similar. However, due to some reasons such as display type and resolution, and some extra-features such as SpO2 measurement, we recommend the Luxe over the Inspire 2.
