Whether you're the proud new owner of a Fitbit Alta or you're rocking the award-winning Alta HR, picking out a stylish band or strap is a great way to refresh your look.

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 - and for considerably less cash.

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 as you want constant contact with your wrist for accurate results.

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 with the pick of the best.

Best Fitbit Alta & Alta HR bands: Third-party straps to mix up your fitness tracker

A nice leather choice for anyone looking for a budget way to style up their Alta HR, we're particularly fond of the green option. The band fixes with a buckle and comes in a host of colours.

The Apple Watch got everyone salivating over Milanese loops – so this third party Fitbit band is a real draw. It comes in two sizes: a large 6.7-inch to 9.3-inch band and a small 5.1-inch to 6.7-inch. You can also choose silver or rose gold options.

ESeekGo Classic Genuine Leather

You can't go wrong with classic leather, so this will suit anyone after a traditional look. It fixes with a buckle and uses traditional cows' hide leather – and is a slight step up from the fake leather you'll find elsewhere.

Vancle leather band

This one is certainly an eye-catching number if you want to give your Fitbit Alta's strap a bit of a visual flourish. Vancle has a range of different floral options available, as well as plain leather options if you want something a little more understated. These straps are versatile when it comes to wrist sizes, supporting wrists between 5.5-8.1 inches.

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.

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.

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.

This one's unlike anything else in this list. For a truly discreet and stylish solution, this bangle completely hides the Alta away so no one need know you're even wearing one. Be sure to select whether you want one for an Alta or Alta HR. As this is designed to hide your Alta, it does mean you can't even see the screen, however.

    If you want to pair your smartband with your phone please consider that FITBIT has a LIMITED list of smartphone supported ... this list seems to be stuck and is not updated with the last phones (i.e. Huawei P8lite 2017, P9 etc...)

    In this case you cannot have notification, synch, gps ...
