The new Fitbit Sense smartwatch brings a host of features to the table. From measuring your blood oxygen levels to getting your ECG, this little gadget on your wrist makes a lot of things possible. In this iteration, Fitbit also worked on the strap mechanism, which is a huge plus. No more toggles on the strap. Instead, newer Fitbit watches like the Sense and Versa 3 have quick-release buttons. So you can easily change the replacement bands.
So if you’re looking to replace the original strap on your Fitbit Sense or the Fitbit Versa 3 (both have the same mechanism), here are our recommendations for the best replacement bands available. From cool leather bands to chic sports bands, we’ve got them all covered.
So, without further ado, let’s get started. But first,
1. Joyozy thin leather bands
It comes with a standard watch type buckle, making it easy and quick to secure.
It is comfortable and, as noted above, the thin band allows air circulation which prevents sweating. Thanks to the elegance of the group and the comfort it brings to the table, it has been praised by many users. The connection point is well made and prevents the watch from falling.
And there are tons of colors to choose from.
2. Daika metal bands
Similar to conventional watches, this bracelet also has a good weight. It easily snaps onto the watch, and several people echoed it.
While metal bands look great, they do have a slight issue when it comes to tracking. If you may have noticed, metal bands don’t have a tight fit like silicon bands. This makes the watch move when you sleep (or when you run) and throws the trackers, especially when the sleep tracker.
So yeah, while this band looks stylish, it would be best to wear it occasionally.
3. Wonmille adjustable elastic band
The best part is that this replacement band for the Fitbit Sense is extremely flexible. Not only does it hug your wrist when you wear it, but it also gives you a comfortable feeling without feeling too tight.
The colors are on-trend without looking too showy, and there are several options to choose from, including a cool scrunchie.
4. Super nylon bands
The good thing about this Hapaw band is that the quality of the velcro is top notch and it stays put. At the same time, it gives a comfortable feeling, which makes it easier to wear the watch for long periods of time.
Most importantly, it adapts and the connection points snap into place without any issues. However, check the length of the bracelet and your wrist size before pressing the Buy button.
5. Pack of 4 Ezco sports bracelets
In addition, the ends firmly adhere to the FitBit Sense. Well, there weren’t any complaints about the dropping of bands, even though these are super affordable.
The colors are great and so is the fit. It is light and thin, which makes it comfortable to wear for long periods of time. And if that wasn’t enough, these bands are easier to clean than nylon bands. Here you have to clean or wipe off the sweat with a soft cloth, and that’s about it.
Like most groups, Ezco also offers groups in two sizes – Small and Large. So yes, be sure to measure your wrist circumference before making the purchase.
6. Qibox sports bands
While the infinity loop seems to be working in its favor, it’s worth noting that the Qibox bands for the Fitbit Sense aren’t the most durable bands.
On the upside, they make the cut if you’re looking for something cheap and short-term. Plus, they’re available in a range of attractive colors and hues, and the low price means you can go for two packs and switch between the many colors to suit your preference.

7. Fitbit Sense and Versa 3 sport bands
Understandably, it costs a lot more than its counterparts above. However, if you’re willing to pay and not stray from the Fitbit ecosystem, this one is a great choice, primarily for those who love sports.
They are available in many colors and the two-tone finish gives it a quirky look. I am already seduced by the Melon and Rose variant.
Wear them well
When it comes to replacement bands, it’s not as easy as locking them into position and forgetting them. Sweat, salt, lint, and dirt can build up inside and can corrode the surface of the strap and the watch. Or, worse, it can cause rashes on your skin. In cases like this, you can set a reminder on your smartphone or watch to clean the band every now and then, and you’ll be sorted.
