Fitbit unveils stylish accessories designed by Tory Burch
You don't need to wear an ugly fitness tracker. I'm sorry, Samsung, but Fitbit has just announced a bunch of fashionable accessories exclusively designed by famous fashion designer, Tory Burch.
At CES 2014 in January, Fitbit said that it has partnered with the fashion brand to produce gorgeous accessories for the Flex, the hot-selling $99 fitness tracker. Well, Fitbit has finally revealed the accessories today, and I must say that they are trendy.
To be honest, they don't look like accessories for fitness trackers at all. They are pricey too - not that surprising for a Tory Burch creation. There are three accessories to choose from.
First is the 175-dollar "Tory Burch for Fitbit Metal Fret Pendant," which is made of brass and has a chain to hang the pendant. Up next is the "Tory Burch for Fitbit Metal Hinged Bracelet" - also made of brass but with a decorative design and an open fretwork. It costs $195.
Lastly, we have the "Tory Burch for Fitbit Silicone Printed Bracelet" at $38. Minus the brass, these accessories sport a colorful closure. It's worth noting that you will need to buy a Fitbit Flex first to use these luxuries.
