Essential Fitbit accessories to personalise your activity tracker

Give your Fitbit a unique look with these upgrades
Top Fitbit accessories for your tracker

Fitbit has always led the wearable field when it comes to jazzing up its fitness trackers, and its devices are some of the most customisable on the market.

It's not just official collaborations, either. Many third parties have been busy creating accessories so you can hide it away in subtle or show it off the way you see fit.

Essential reading: Fitbit Alta review | Fitbit Blaze review

Most personalisation options are for older Fitbits, such as the Flex and Zip –which include a removable sensor that can be hidden in bands and jewellery, but there's the odd few things for the Charge, the Charge HR as well.

Fitbit is of course offering plenty of official customisation for the new Blaze and Alta, which you can check out over on the Fitbit website.

We've collected together some of the top Fitbit accessories to inject a bit more personality into your wearable.

Fitbit Blaze accessories

Fitbit Blaze Gunmetal edition

The smart fitness watch just got a handsome upgrade. Fitbit Blaze is now available in a sleek all-black Gunmetal edition (seen in the main photo above) straight from the company, and Best Buy stores online. You'll get a whole set that includes the band, frame and tracker for $230.

Fitbit Blaze anklet extension

A useful Blaze accessory for cyclists or anyone that wants to improve step tracking accuracy, the custom made strap will let you wear the fitness tracker around your ankle. Available in black, orange, purple, bright blue or grey, it comes in standard (adds 2-inches) or extra long (adds 4-inches) options letting you discreetly monitor wherever you go.

$16.97, etsy.com

Vekson Milanese strap

Fitbit does offer its own array of Blaze metal frames, but if you wanted to save some money, there's some decent third party alternatives like this Apple Watch-esque number. The stainless steel band still gives off that suit-friendly vibe and features a metal buckle that should ensure your Blaze does not budge from your wrist.

$31.99, amazon.com

Awinner replacement USB charger

More of an essential than adding some personality to the Blaze, it's always nice to have a spare charger to throw in you bag. Especially if you travel a lot. This third party charger works in exactly the same way as the official one. So you still need to pop out the Blaze screen from the frame and trap it inside the small cradle. It might not be as exciting as a stylish strap, but it could prevent you staring down at your wrist and seeing that red battery status bar.

$8.99, amazon.com

Fitbit Alta accessories

Morstep

Company Morstep has several lovely metal bands that you can easily slip your Alta into without spending a ton of money. The magnetic clasp makes it a cinch to adjust for a perfect fit as well. The bands are available in gold, silver and rose gold. If you have a Fitbit Blaze, there are also two options in gold and black.

$45, morstep.com

Tory Burch

Tory Burch has already been a name associated with Fitbit and now you can find Alta accessories with the TB touch as well. Crafted elegantly, the designs are meant to turn your tracker into a discreet bracelet. There's no price or release date just yet, but you can expect style options to resemble the ones for the Fitbit Flex.

Public School

Fitbit is adding more designers to its growing collection with the Public School partnership. You can expect some left-field creations considering it's the fashion world and you never know what you'll get. So far, there aren't any official releases or prices and availability has been slated for some time later this year.

$TBA

Classic

There aren't a ton of new accessories for the latest Fitbit fitness tracker other than the aforementioned designer choices, but you can't go wrong picking up another classic band in a new color. They're placed at the lower end of the price spectrum and look sporty in black, blue, plum and teal.

$29.95, Fitbit.com

Luxe

There's the leather Luxe bands to consider as well. Worn during part of our review, the band is comfy and durable. Bonus points for making the fitness tracker look sleek and professional. The Luxe collection has also added a Camel Leather Accessory for gentlemen.

$59.95, Fitbit.com

Metal band

For a higher end look, you can go the metal band route. It's still a fashionable accessory and adds a premium feel you don't get from the classic model. However, it's also a bit more costly.

$99.95, Fitbit.com

Fitbit Flex accessories

Tory Burch for Fitbit bracelet

Before you start scouting around the internet for Fitbit accessories, check out the official Fitbit collaboration with Tory Burch first.

There's a big range of products, including pendants and bracelets for the Fitbit Flex. If you're looking for a simple option that looks the most like regular jewellery the Fret is a good fit - it's also great for those who get irritated by wristbands.

You simply secure your Fitbit into the back of the pendant and it'll stay in place with a little latch.

The Fret (pendant) and the bracelet comes in gold, rose gold and silver.

Polished Brass Lucas Slide

Type "fitbit" into Etsy and you'll uncover a treasure trove of crafty, handmade accessories for your Fitbit, from chunky gold bracelets through to be-jewelled spangly creations presumably aimed at the teen market.

This clasp from Bytten is our favourite because it's simple, subtle and doesn't need an extra strap – you just add it to your current Fitbit.

There's a handful of ones there for the Charge HR including a fetching leather wristband cover.

$74.99, etsy.com

Griffin Uptown band

Staying on the stylish front, Griffin's Uptown band is a double-wrap leather band to hide away the Fitbit Flex's little sensor. There's cutout to let you view the display and it's available in brown or black shades with adjustable metal snaps to keep it in place.

$34.99, griffin.com | Amazon

Creek Reflections leather bracelet

There's ways for guys to conceal their tracking too. Step forward the leather wristband that's handmade and keeps the Fitbit Flex's sensor held in place inside a small silver box. You can pick out the stone that sits in front of the tracker and it's transparent so you can still see the illuminating lights. It's tracking with absolutely no ugly plastic in sight.

$169, creekreflections.com

Griffin Ribbon wristbands

If the thought of a plastic wristband immediately makes your skin crawl, then this softer option from Griffin might be more up your street.

They're in the style of ribbons and are designed to look like the high-end hair ties lots of people seem to be wearing round their wrists at the moment.

They come in a huge range of colours and allow you to secure your Fitbit Flex or your Fitbit One into a secure, spandex pocket at the back.

$19.99, griffintechnology.com | Amazon

NIUTOP Fitbit Flex wristbands

If you prefer your wearables to be loud and noticeable rather than subtle, then take a look at NIUTOP's range of wristbands, designed specially for the Flex.

Most of the really fun styles are only available on Amazon, where you'll find florals, a huge range of polka dots and even some camouflage, but there are a few for UK customers with limited patterns too.

$8.99, Amazon

The Friendly Swede silicone fasteners

If you've got a Fitbit Flex and find it comes open on its own a lot - a common complaint amongst some Fitbit-lovers - then these tiny, candy-like fasteners are exactly what you need.

Made from a colourful silicone, they're designed to keep your Fitbit Flex in place. You buy 12 at a time, which is great if you want to switch out some of the colours and create different effects.

$9.99, thefriendlyswede.com | Amazon

Fitbit accessories for Zip and One

Zipband accessory wristband


If you have a Fitbit Zip and want to wear it on your wrist instead of on your belt, shoe, bra or in your pocket then head on over to Wocase for some colourful wristband options.

$10.99, wocase.com | Amazon

Oneband Accessory Wristband

While we're at it, if you want the Fitbit One on your wrist too, the guys at Wocase have you covered too.

$10.99, wocase.com | Amazon

Afunta Charging Cables for Fitbit

Fitbit does sell charging cables on its website, but you can pick up some unofficial versions for the Flex, the Charge and the Charge HR on Amazon.

Many come in twin packs, which is ideal for keeping one at home and one at work.

There are many different brands selling them on Amazon, and is an affordable solution to the problem of remembering to carry that charging cable everywhere you go.

    I do not know the model I have (one of the basics) but an returning it as it is not going to fit my needs ~ while reading paperwork for how to sync it which I never did find (glad to read that you need to download the app for better instructions) I saw the band has NICKEL in it. This is a common allergic metal for many in jewelry especially earrings but I would not have thought with this type of band there would be a reason for putting nickel in them! Perhaps it has to do with regulations where they are manufactured ~ no restrictions & maybe it is cheaper for added strength & durability (just a guess)!

    Avoid fitbit! I bought a fitbit charge for my wife at dick smith. The first one did not work straight out of the box, would not charge at all. Dick smith replaced immediately, same day as purchase. A few months later the new one stopped charging. Again, Dick Smith replaced with a brand new item. Now, 9 months later, this 3rd fitbit charge will not charge, the battery will not charge.

    Subsequently, Dick Smith has closed down in my area so I can not return for a refund.

    I contacted Fitbit, who are saying the original purchase is out of warranty but they will replace with the same model, but will not refund. They don't have enough faith in their own product to give a warranty on the brand new replacement fitbit charge thats only 9 months old!! I asked if the replacement they are willing to send will have a warranty but they didi not reply.

    They also will not allow me to pay the difference to upgrade to a better model!!

    Well, if you ask me thats pretty poor, they should write a book on how to lose customers because thats what they've done in this situation. Not only me but everyone I know I tell how bad the product is and the lack of faith they have in their product. I strongly recommend buying a more reputable brand.

    Fitbit is a waste of money and you will more than likely be disappointed.
