Best Fitbit Alta HR bands: Stylish, budget options for any look

Change your Alta look for any occasion

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.

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.

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 through the best of the bunch.

Any questions? Let us know in the comments below.

Alonea Leather Band Strap

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.

£9.99, Amazon

Oitom Steel Milanese Loop

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

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.

£14.99, Amazon

ESeekGo Classic Genuine Leather

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

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.

£13.99, Amazon

AK magnetic metal strap

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

If you thought the magnetic clasp look was only available for the Apple Watch, say hello to AK's stainless steel magnetic clasp. Available in seven different colours, including a rainbow option, this will allow those with wrists between 5.5-8.1 inches to have an easily adjustable option to switch out. It's not the best for those wanting to exercise, naturally, but is perfect for when you want to smarten your wrist up.

£24.71 | Amazon


Henoda leather band

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

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.

$11.99 | Amazon

FitjewelsSF metal link band

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

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.

£38.73 | Etsy

AK rubber band

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

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.

$14.99 | Amazon

Funktional Wearables metal bangle

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

If you're looking for something truly discreet, covering up the tracker with a bangle is also an avenue you can explore. This hammered metal design is available in gold, rose gold, silver or hematite, though just remember to select whether you want the option for either the Alta or Alta HR.

£22.85 | Etsy

    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 ...
