I have the Fitbit Charge 2 and in August 2017, my stock Fitbit charge 2 band began separating. On my first Fitbit charge, the watchbands came as part of the watch, so I figured Fitbit would need to send me a replacement watch. Since my watch was still under warranty, I called customer service. They told me they would send me a replacement band.
What? A replacement band! I didn’t even know it was a thing.
I do love my Fitbit. It tracks my sleep. I can see a dramatic drop in my resting heart rate over time indicating improving fitness and heart health. It vibrates, reminding me to move my lazy butt. My Fitbit allows me to see how many steps I’ve taken and whether or not I am meeting my daily fitness goals. However, dancing is one of my favorite fitness activities. When we go out dancing, I like to dress up. Fitbit’s drab band selection doesn’t look great with most of my dressier clothing. So their interchangeable bands are right up my alley.
But, I love the interchangeable bands the most. Fitbit offers their own bands, but I find them sort of plain-jane. Not to mention, I got sticker shock at their from their stock bands at $30 apiece, so I hit began researching options! Since I wear my Fitbit almost non-stop, I like it to look more like a fashion accessory and less like a utilitarian health device.
Interchangeable Fitbit Charge 2 Band Replacements Changed how I wear my Fitbit
David is a veteran, so we are American Legion members. He is a Legionnaire, and I am an Auxiliary member. Since our post has a non-smoking dance floor, that’s one of our favorite dancing haunts. I was even able to find a band with an American flag for when we go there. I have also seen dressy metal watch style bands and multi-packs with several different fun prints.
This is my favorite American Legion outfit. I now wear my American Flag Fitbit Charge 2 band with it instead of the black one.
Before our latest Disney vacation, I bought this multipack so I could match all my outfits I packed for the road. Unbelievably, the entire pack of four was just $12.99 when I bought them. Considering Fitbit brand bands cost almost $30 for one for a plain, boring band, this is a steal! For the Legion and American patriot holiday wear, I got this American Flag Fitbit accessory band.
I put together this video demonstrating the simple process to switch out the Fitbit bands. I know some people aren’t even aware changing the bands on the Fitbit Charge 2 is possible. I have also heard some people complain that it’s difficult. However, it is just a matter of pushing a button – check it out.
