The Fitbit Charge 5 is no different to any of Fitbit's latest trackers in that you have some room to mix up that look. You might only have three case colors to choose from, but you have a much bigger range of bands to dress up or dress down the health and fitness tracker.

You can take your pick of Fitbit's official band accessories, but that's not your only option to personalising that Charge 5 look. There's already a growing collection of Charge 5 bands you can pick up from the likes of Amazon and you won't have to spend as much money to get them.
