Whether you’re the proud new owner of a Fitbit Alta or you’re rocking the award-winning Alta HR, picking out a new band is a great way to refresh the slim, feature-packed fitness tracker.
Fitbit itself has a strong arsenal of bands which can help you customise, including collaborative options from fashion houses, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find similar alternatives from third parties.
Read this: Which Fitbit tracker should you buy?
Why are we grouping both devices together here? Well, despite the newer version offering a friendlier buckled clasp, it’s essentially the same design — meaning all bands should cross over. The only thing Alta HR wearers have to be conscious of is having a fit that’s tight enough to let the heart rate sensor do its work.
So, whether you’re a sporty type looking for a new colour to accompany you on runs or you need to trade in the silicon band for a more date-friendly leather or metal option, we’ve got you covered through the best of the bunch.

AK magnetic metal strap
If you thought the magnetic clasp look was only available for the Apple Watch, say hello to AK’s stainless steel magnetic clasp. Available in seven different colours, including a rainbow option, this will allow those with wrists of between 5.5-8.1 inches to have an easily adjustable option to switch out. It’s not the best for those wanting to exercise, naturally, but perfect for when you want to smarten your wrist up.

Fox In London stainless steel strap
These popular, affordable stainless steel link bracelets are available in black, silver, pink, gold, rose gold and multi-colour. They’re 12mm in width and come adjusted for your exact wrist size courtesy of the UK-based Etsy seller. Proof that you don’t need to go overboard to give your fitness tracker a bit of personality.

Henoda leather band
Fitbit has its own range of leather straps, but if you’re looking for something similar at a reduced rate, Henoda offers a number of leather variations. Since this is a smartwatch-style buckle, you won’t need to faff around with sizes, either, with the majority of the bands fitting wrists between 5.3-7.6 inches.
$11.99 | Amazon
Fabric wrist and ankle strap
If you’re not into the whole band thing, maybe it’s time you looked towards making things more comfortable with this fabric strap. Coming in either black or grey, the knotted Alta carrier is also availalable in sizes from 6-11 inches, meaning it can also fit around a user’s ankle and still pick up all your steps. If you’re an Alta HR wearer, though, don’t bank on this helping you keep tabs of your ticker.
£6.13 | Etsy
FitjewelsSF metal link band
Another metal design, but this time a more traditional link look, as opposed to the magnetic loop. You’ll have to deal with potentially changing the links for this clasped band, but thankfully a tool kit is included if you’re opting for the medium or large sizes. This listing shows off a rose gold option, but the same style is also available in gold, silver and black.
£38.73 | Etsy
AK rubber band
Maybe you’ve overused your original silicon band from Fitbit or you just want to stare down at a different colour when hitting the pavement and keeping track on your progress — either way, AK also has you covered with plenty of options here. The 10 colour variations come in both small (5.5-6.7 inches) and large (6.7-8.1 inches), which you can either opt to buy individually or all as one — you know, just in case you’re looking to sub in a new strap every day.
$14.99 | Amazon
Double wrap band
If you want the double up on the leather band look, this’ll do the trick. Coming in variety of colours including black, brown, navy and pink, this replicates the look of Apple’s Hermès collaboration — though, of course, at a fraction of the price for those with a Fitbit Alta or Alta HR.
£6.78 | Amazon
Funktional Wearables metal bangle
If you’re looking for something truly discreet, covering up the tracker with a bangle is also an avenue you can explore. This hammered metal design is available in gold, rose gold, silver or hematite, though just remember to select whether you want the option for either the Alta or Alta HR.
£22.85 | Etsy
Simeon D rose quartz bracelet
Another jewellery-like option, this bracelet accessory for the Alta HR comes courtesy of htparts. It’s got gold connectors attached to a rose quarts stones bracelet to help disguise that sporty, fitness look from your tracker.
