Exercising is wonderful for your health, but tracking the stats to your exercise is even more rewarding! Many people nowadays have a SmartWatch or a Fitbit to track their steps, heart rate, sleep, etc., but the downside is the band it comes with can be rather uncomfortable and generic.

So this article is all about Fitbit Charge 2 Bands and the best options to choose from!

Fitbit Charge 2 Bands

I personally love my Fitbit, but the band it came with is becoming itchy and has stretched overtime – oh and it’s breaking.

In other words, the original band I have looks bland and old. So I’m in the market myself! And will buy one of the options below I like the most. I’ll share which I buy in the conclusion to this article!

1. Classic Genuine Leather Wristband

Leather Fitbit Charge 2 Band

I miss wearing real watching, because of the feel and the style. So the first thing I always look for is leather bands because it looks so classy and “expensive.” With this band, your Fitbit will look like a real watch! Which is what we all want in the end, right?

  • 15 different color options
  • 100% genuine leather – soft and comfortable
  • Not water resistant – allow drying after exercise
  • Stainless steel closures
  • 90-day money-back guarantee
  • Click to view on Amazon!

I’ve tried this one. I really like the leather and wore it for a few days, but unfortunately, the bands are too slim for a man’s wrist and looks a little feminine for me. This band is slimmer from the default band the Fitbit comes with, so keep it in mind when decided which you’d like to buy.

2. Ezzdo Retro Style Leather Band (2 Bands & Screen Protector)

Fitbit Charge 2 Leather BandThe retro style of the leather makes it looks less “classy,” but far more stylish in my opinion.

When you buy this band, it comes with a screen protector and apparently the color of the leather can be changed between light and dark brown. I had no idea Fitbits can have screen protectors! I wish I knew because my Fitbit is very scratched up. I’ll have to take some fine sandpaper and buff out the scratches and then put on a protector! For the price, this package is a time saver and a great fashionable option.

  • 100% genuine leather
  • Package includes a Fitbit screen protector
  • 100% satisfaction and risk-free warranty
  • 2-year free replacement or full refund
  • Click to view on Amazon!

Out of all the leather options I’ve seen, this is by far the best deal and most stylish look. Definitely considering this for myself.

3. Swees Milanese Stainless Steel Band

Stainless Steel Fitbit Charge 2 Band

I’ve seen this band many times and my wife has actually just bought the rose gold option. I was impressed by the good quality of the metal and how comfortable it was even though it’s metal!

  • 17 color options
  • Stainless steel
  • Magnetic lock
  • Ventilated design
  • 1 year warranty
  • Available in small and large size band
  • Click to view on Amazon!

You might be asking yourself if it might cause allergies from nickel, etc., but from customer reviews, it looks like this metal alloy hasn’t irritated anyone’s skin. It most likely doesn’t contain nickel.

Metal Fitbit Charge 2 Band

This wristband looks very easy to wear for many occasions from work to exercise, formal meetings to sleeping. My wife loves hers and while I love the leather options, I’m afraid of breathability.

The fact the metal is designed to breathe well is very inviting – I hate the band the Fitbit came with because it gets so uncomfortable and itchy with the plastic band!

If money isn’t an issue, buy them all! But I’d say this band is best to work for all situations (though it doesn’t come with the screen protector like option #2).

4. SKYLET Breathable Silicone Band (3-pack)

Breathable Silicone Fitbit Charge 2 Band

Silicone is much cheaper to produce as evident by this phenomenal price of $12 for 3 different colored bands for your Fitbit Charge 2. Though it’s silicone, they do have a design that allows it to breathe better from the band it comes it.

  • 7 color options to choose from (individually, there are 13 different colors)
  • Stainless steel buckle
  • Medical-grade silicone
  • They will replace bands if there’re issues with shipment
  • Click to view on Amazon!

I’m very wary of plastic or silicone, just because I’m so annoyed by the default band the Fitbit came with – but this 3-pack really make things cheap. With 3 color options, there’d be a lot more options when picking out outfits.

Though this style looks like “exercise” attire and it’s not so nice for “going out,” having 3 different colors does make things more fun. It’s always nice to have options!

5. SnowCinda Woven Nylon Band

Woven Nylon Fitbit Charge 2 BandMaybe it’s just me, but woven nylon reminds me of the watch brand, Fossil. And I LOVE Fossil. The woven look makes this band look more hip than silicone, yet not as classy as leather. It’s a great option for casual outfits and possibly even formal.

  • 4 color options
  • 100% premium woven nylon
  • All bands pass a “Pulling Force Test”
  • 1 year warranty
  • Click to view on Amazon!

Like I said before, the woven nylon look will help turn your Fitbit into a piece of fashion. I miss wearing watches mainly because I hate the band the Fitbit came with – sorry I keep complaining about it, but I’m really fed up! Excited to research option for the community here, but also for myself.

6. Jolook Vintage Printed Leather Band

Printed Leather Fitbit Charge 2 Band

Most of the options I’ve listed previously have subdued colors and aren’t as eye-grabbing!

This wristband has printed leather with many, many design options including this vintage, colorful wood design. The band has a more classic watch design with a secure clasp.

  • 43 different print design options to choose from!
  • Metal clasps
  • 30-day return policy
  • 90-day replacement guarantee
  • Click to view on Amazon!

This band isn’t my first recommendation, because the quality isn’t the best (from what I can tell from the customer reviews). BUT. If you’re shopping for a specific look, Jolook definitely offers many designs to choose from!

7. MoKo Woven Nylan Band

Woven Nylon Band for Fitbit Charge 2

You may think this option looks the same as the 5th band I listed, but it is a bit slicker as far as coloring. There are only 2 colors instead of three, though the loop to keep the strap in place isn’t leather like option 5.

  • 4 color combinations to choose from
  • 100% fine woven nylon
  • 18-month warranty
  • Stainless steel clasp
  • Click to view on Amazon!

The other color options aren’t so attractive as the blue and white, which I LOVE. It looks very slick and would work with many options. Just like I had said in the description for option 5, this band really reminds me of the style Fossil goes for – hip, woven nylon for a rugged, stylish look.

8. Cuzow Stainless Steel Band

Stainless Steel Fitbit Charge 2 BandThis stainless steel band is by far the fanciest look – very business. It is advertised for men and women, but I’d be skeptical. It looks a bit more feminine than masculine in my opinion.

Occasionally, I do take my Fitbit off and replace it with a fancy watch. Though in the back of my mind I think, “all those steps I’m missing out on!” With a fancier band, this disappointment can be avoided because you’ll be able to keep it on for formal occasions too! Which is very useful. Like I said before, style options are where it’s at!

9. Aiwell Printed Silicone Band

Printed Silicone Fitbit Charge 2 Band
Well, obviously this band is far more colorful from the others – but isn’t it cool! With silicone, the print will be far clearer than with leather. In the end, it all comes down to your own preference.

  • 14 different prints to choose from
  • Flexible/durable elastomer material
  • Surgical-grade stainless steel buckle
  • Colors will not fade easily
  • 1-year warranty
  • Click to view on Amazon!

Though this band is similar to the one the Fitbit comes with, the silicone allows for exercise without worry of sweat. But the amazing and vivid colors of this band makes it for a great fashion option. For only $5, you could buy a few color options and be set with style variations for your outfits.

10. Bandmax Knit Nylon Band

Knit Woven Fitbit Charge 2 Band

I love different options for accessories, ways to wear average things creatively! This knit nylon look would make people question if it’s really a Fitbit you’re wearing!

  • 5 color options
  • Handmade weaves, knit nylon
  • Drawstring clasp
  • Includes band, polishing cloth, instructions, and quality brand box
  • Click to view on Amazon!

The knit look not only looks light, but it is said it feels lighter and is very flexible. Wearing your Fitbit would be even less noticeable with the comfort of a knitted band! This breathable, comfortable, durable design is very fashionable and stands out from all the other options you can find online!

11. Bayite Stainless Steel Band for Men

Stainless Steel Band for Men Fitbit Charge 2

If you’re looking for a way to wear your Fitbit as business meetings, look no further! This band is very slick and converts your Fitbit into an expensive looking watch suitable for professional business occasions. Keep track of your steps 24/7!

  • 5 color options
  • Stainless steel
  • Unique double button folding clasp design
  • Comes with a tool to resize the band
  • 1-year warranty
  • Click to view on Amazon!

I really love that the design of the Fitbit Charge 2 allows for complete detachment of the band. You can literally change the way your Fitbit looks solely off the band!

With this quality band, you’d allow yourself full freedom in professional settings by converting your Fitbit into a fashion accessory. People would respect your ability to stay professional while also keeping fit.

12. Wearlizer Metal Band for Women

Shiny Classy Fitbit Charge 2 Band for WomenSo far this list has covered many occasions, but this band is by far the most classy option for women. The sparkly addition to the light, modern design is both flattering and classy.

Your Fitbit will become eye-candy and will stand out. No longer will you just have an exercise tracker, you’ll have a fashion accessory too. And for another few dollars, you can buy a silicone one as well so you don’t have to wear it during your trip to the gym (to keep it safe). Love the style though! It’s very classy and professional.

13. Somoder Vintage Leather Band

Vintage Leather Fitbit Charge 2 BandSo, back to leather! Only this time the leather is black and in a more contemporary style that is designed to breathe! Not only is the style unique, the band itself is handmade by Somoder.

  • 7 different colors to choose from (you don’t have to get black!)
  • Durable alloy and leather
  • Sizeable by twisting the leather or at the base
  • 12-month warranty
  • Click to view on Amazon!

Maybe it’s because I’m a guy, but I’m never too fond of shiny materials. That’s why I love leather! Keep in mind that the style of this option is thin and would work best with a smaller wrist. But the leather offers comfort and durability – and did I mention how fashionable it is?!

14. Tomazon Elastic Beaded Pearl Band

Beaded Pearl Fitbit Charge 2 Band

There are very few options that look interestingly different than silicone, leather, or nylon. This feminine styled band is beautiful and the strung pearls with natural stone looks very elegant and unique.

  • 3 color options
  • Genuine faux pearl beads
  • Elastic fabric, artificial crystal & natural stone
  • Stainless steel adapters
  • No buckle needed, there’s an adapter on the band, no tools needed
  • Click to view on Amazon!

Pearls, stones, crystal and stainless steel makes this band an amazingly, charming combination of unique materials. I really love the look and it definitely makes the Fitbit look SO much different. It really looks beautiful!

15. Bayite Accessorized Leather Band

 

Accessorized Leather Band for Fitbit Charge 2

From here on out, this list of Fitbit Charge 2 bands gets really interesting. If you think this option is different, just you wait – this is a bit milder than the next few I’ve found on Amazon! Brilliantly eclectic choices coming your way!

  • 5 different color combinations
  • Genuine leather with metal clasp
  • Eco-friendly
  • 1-year warranty, 100% satisfaction guarantee
  • Click to view on Amazon!

The stainless steel and leather combination is unique. The separate loops of woven leather on the outside of the Fitbit gives it some depth and variance – much different from the other options I’ve seen. Why is this band so difficult to find on Amazon? It took me a long time – but with 4 out of 5 stars and 768 customer reviews, this band is durable and prime ready. It is also “Amazon’s Choice!”

16. Jobese Classic Fabric with Leather Band

Fabric and Leather Fitbit Charge 2 Band

The classic look of the watch strap is familiar, but the woven fabric with leather accents and comfortable breathability is very attractive. I am really liking this band!

  • 4 different colors
  • Premium fabric material
  • Genuine leather on the back side for smoothness against the skin
  • Handmade, fine crafted, exquisite sewing process
  • Soft, breathable, flexible, non-allergic, and smooth
  • Buckle is stainless steel
  • 1-year warranty
  • Click to view on Amazon!

Leather and Fabric Fitbit Charge 2 BandNot to spoil the surprise, but I chose this one and bought it right away – I mean for only $10, why wouldn’t I!?

The band is designed to breathe and the material is non-allergic, which is a great change from the silicone band the Fitbit comes with that I’ve been wearing for a year now (it’s super annoying). This band looks stylish like Fossil, but durable enough to be worn durable workouts. Two leather loops to keep it in place looks promising so that it doesn’t slip around and the backside leather material makes it look very comfortable.

I’m very excited for it to come in the mail! I’ve been waiting to find the right choice (I’m very picky). It took me writing an entire article to find the right band for me! Now that it’s coming tomorrow (thanks to Prime), I’m very excited! There’re no reviews on Amazon, so I might be the first one! Woo!

17. Mosunx Leather Band with Charms

Leather Band with Charms for Fitbit Charge 2If you’re still looking for eclectic options to upgrade your Fitbit look, allow this band to spark your interest. It’s very similar to some previous options, but the design is a bit less intense yet offers some character.

The black and steel combination match perfectly with the silver and black of the Fitbit, but the accent colors of the brass adds that extra hint of character. I love the look of the extra bling – it makes it look elegant, yet “hipster.” Maybe I’m too old to be using that word. If you liked this option though, get ready for the next one!

18. Smatiful Leather Band with Bling

Leather Band with Bling for Fitbit Charge 2 BandNow just because this option is the last on the list doesn’t make it the coolest band, but – let’s just admit to each other now that this is by far the most intense and interesting option (coincidentally). With three bands in one, this combination is rather complex and beautiful.

  • 11 color options
  • Full-grain leather from Antique Series
  • Easily resizeable by cutting the leather
  • Handmade by the owner of Smatiful
  • Click to view on Amazon!

With all the color options and the fact the owner hand makes each order really makes this band unique and “dresses up” your Fitbit into a sought-after fashion accessory. You’d hardly notice it’s a Fitbit with all the “bling” on the sides. With the charms on the leather in the middle and the woven leather on the sides, this interconnected band offers a lot of character. And I love the name of the shop, Smatiful – a mix of “smart” and “beautiful.”

Conclusion

There are a lot of options when it comes to Fitbit Charge 2 bands so PLEASE, don’t comprise by keeping the band it comes with – I hated my old one and ordered a new one as soon as I finished writing this article.

Believe or not, all these options I listed are around $10 to $20 and I don’t think any of them were any more expensive!

So the band that I bought was a band for only $10 with a great classic style with leather, option # 16 on this list. As far as my taste, this band was everything I was looking for – comfortable leather backside with woven fabric and leather accents on the outside. The classic buckle makes it look like a fashionable watch, but with non-allergic material that’s breathable, it is exactly what I was looking for! I’m really happy with it.

The JOBESE band is everything I was looking for in a new Fitbit Charge 2 band!

*I guess my only complaint is that it’s a bit stiff at first, but it’s loosening up a bit.

Which option was your favorite? Were you surprised by the low prices? I know I was – I feel silly waiting so long before I bought my replacement band.

Love this post!! My partner has a FitBit and has been complaining about the itchy strap, but claims that the replacement straps are too expensive… well not according to this post! 🙂 Even the real leather ones are a great price. And what a choice! My personal favourite is the Smatiful Leather Band with Bling… but I don’t have a FitBit. Suppose I’ll have to get myself one now that I know I can get cool looking straps for them. Thanks for this – I’ll be showing it to my partner. Great post 🙂

    I’m so glad you liked it! I find the price and options surprising too! I feel silly waiting so long before buying my own replacement band. I do hope your partner enjoys their new band – it is totally worth it! I actually like wearing my Fitbit now as a fashion accessory now 🙂 Best of luck! And thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Thank you for this post! I had no idea about the Fitbit previously, but you have nicely explained all the important information. There are so many different styles here and having many designs/options are very nice! Normally I am not into wearing wristwatches, but I love Fitbit and these styles are great. I feel that Fitbit has changed my mindset too. I hope to order new one soon! Thanks!

    Chase Chandler · May 20, 2018 at 11:01 am

    You are very welcome! I hope you found the article useful and consider updating your Fitbit’s fashion statement. And I also agree that my Fitbit has changed my mindset about exercise and health too. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Best of luck to you!
