But now it’s time to pimp it up. There are a selection of bands and straps you can buy to make your smartwatch look more stylish.
Some of these come from Fitbit other are not. The ones from the San Francisco wearables manufacturer include classic bands in a variety of colors and a $30 price-tag. There’s a Horween leather selection which typically retails for $50, and stainless steel which will set you back between $80 and $90. Any of these represents a great choice and you can check them out on Fitbit’s website. But let’s face it, they are quite pricey.
A much cheaper way of smartening up your Versa is to opt for a third party strap. What follows is our selection of the best that’s currently out there.
Bayite genuine leather band
This is an elegant genuine leather band collection for women with a polished stainless steel classic watch buckle. The straps are slim yet strong and very soft for comfortable daily use. They also fit securely so you can wear them during workouts.
The bands are adjustable to fit 5.3″ – 7.8″ wrists and can be purchased in a variety of colours. Installation is tool free and the bands come with improved quick release spring bars.
Kmasic Sport Band
For the sporty types, the simple Kmasic strap comes in a selection of more than 10 colors. The band is made of premium silicone material with a tapered design. It’s soft, flexible, durable, elegant and comfortable.
This band is a great alternative to the Fitbit Versa classic band and comes at a fraction of the price. You can choose from one of two sizes. The small is suited for 5.5″ – 7.5″ wrists and the large for 6.3″ – 8.3″ wrists. The band secures via a silver, rose gold or black metal buckle.
EZCO Breathable Fabric
This band is made of durable and soft woven nylon fabric material. The material is very lightweight, smooth, breathable and comfortable against your skin. Once again, there are multiple colours to fit your style.
EZCO is a one size fits all affair. You’ll just need to make sure the 5.5”-7.8” fit is suitable for your wrist. The thing is easy to install and attaches via a 3 spring bar, which locks firmly onto the watch interface.
KIMILAR Sport Silicone
Another one for the fitness freaks, this one comes with cooling air holes for extra breathability. The durable and soft material is designed with comfort in mind. The metal parts are made with hypoallergenic nickel free stainless steel.
The look actually reminds very much of the strap on the Nike+ version of the Apple Watch. In addition to multiple colours you are able to choose from two sizes: small 5.5″ – 6.7″and large 6.7″ – 8.9″.
Hooroor Milanese Loop
This Milanese loop mesh watchband is made of premium stainless steel metal. It is designed to be flexible and adjustable, comfortable for day to day wear. The strap comes with a strong magnetic closure which holds the band securely in place.
As you’d expect, there are multiple colors to choose from including Black, Rose Gold, Graphite, Silver, Rose Pink, Lavender, Champagne, Colourful and more. Two sizes available include small which fits 5.1″-7.9″ wrists; and large 6.5″- 9.3″.
This is a slim and elegant band made of quality stainless steel that is ideal for slender wrists. You’re sure to turn heads with a Versa band set with rhinestones that sparkle.
Bling is suitable for 5.3″-7.6″ inch wrists. There are six folding clasps in each band for that perfect fit and maximum comfort. Simply remove a folding clasp to resize the band, no tools needed!
Bayite Leather Bands
In addition to the first item on this list, this is another collection of leather bands from Bayite we felt was worth including. The one depicted on the pic above features a vivid floral pattern. This is just one example, though, and there are many other designs to choose from.
All the bands come with a polished stainless steel watch-like buckle for a secure fit, and are designed to fit wrists that measure between 5.5″ – 7.5″. Installation is easy and tool free.
Vancle Stainless Steel Milanese Mesh
Similar to the Hooroor band above, this is a stainless steel Milanese loop mesh band. It is suitable for both men and women and comes in a range of colours including Champagne, Rose Gold, Rose Pink, Gold, Silver, Black, Rainbow, Sakura Pink and more.
The band comes with 3 quick release pins in the box (an extra one as backup). The available sizes are 5.5″ – 9″ for small wrists and 6.7″ – 10″ for large wrists.
