Best Fitbit Ionic bands: Third-party straps to help you freshen up your smartwatch

Fitbit Ionic strap alternatives for exercising, dressing up and everything else

When it comes to picking the best Fitbit Ionic band, you can't take a one-size-fits-all approach, as everyone has different needs. Thankfully, the Fitbit Ionic is highly customizable with a vast array of straps and bands for every occasion.

If you're getting a bit bored of your Ionic's look, a new band is a great way to breathe some new life into Fitbit's smartwatch - whether that's for you or a gift for someone else.

Of course, Fitbit has its own range of official Fitbit Ionic straps but these often come at a premium. If you're not looking to spend quite as much, thankfully there are third party options available that are just as good.

Likewise, if spotting someone with an identical Fitbit is going to ruin your day, a unique third party option is your best bet as they come in far more varieties.

So whether you're looking for a strap to glam up your Fitbit Ionic, or a sweat-resistant band to survive a sweaty workout, we've rounded up the best Fitbit band options for you right here.

So you thought you could only get that sleek Milanese loop look from the folks over in Cupertino, did you? Well, think again. Through this third-party option from Frler, you can pick up this classy magnetic band in six different colour styles ā€” rose gold, black, orange, gold, smoke gray and silver.

Naturally, how good these look largely comes down to which Ionic body colour you're rocking, but this is a great option for those looking to pick a smarter option without the faff of adjusting and resizing.

If Milanese loops aren't your thing, you may find that a standard steel band does just the trick. With this option coming in a whopping 14 different styles, too, you're sure to find a colour that can help you mix things up from the usual sporty look. It should fit most wrists, but bear in mind that you'll likely have to adjust the links as well.

The Ionic's standard band is all well and good if you want to run around your local park or hit up the swimming pool, but it's by no means the dressiest strap out there. So if you want to ditch the sporty look, you can give this rhinestone-packed metal option from Bayite a try.

The band comes in three colours - gold, black and silver - with a clasp system in place for you to lock the device to your wrist. Since this is a metal band, it also comes with a tool to resize and adjust to your wrist, while also being easy to take on and off.

MoKo perforated silicon strap

You may like the idea of Fitbit's sporty, perforated bands, but it's also possible the company's options are too limited in design or expensive for your taste. In that case, MoKo is on hand to provide you pretty much the same two-tone design in a range of seven alternative combinations.

All of MoKo' straps fit come in small or large sizes, with the perforations giving you lots of room to adjust and find a spot comfortable for when you're exercising (and want that underside steady to monitor your heart rate) or sat at your desk at work.

Cagos leather band

Fitbit itself obviously offers you its range of leather straps, but if you want to opt for something a little cheaper, or you just plain don't like the look of its range, you might be interested in Cagos' bands for the Ionic. For wrists of between 6.29- to 8.66-inch wrists, the company offers you three leather options (black, brown, blue) with small perforations covering the band.

Supcase rugged buckle case

If you're planning on putting your Fitbit Ionic through a serious bruising, then you'll want this ruggedised case and strap combo. It's made from shock-absorbent, heavy-duty materials that are designed to withstand whatever you throw at it.

The case simply snaps into place and you're safe in the knowledge your Fitbit Ionic is well protected. The size adjustable band should accommodate any wrist size as well.

Allbingo's colourful straps

Something that you definitely won't be able to pick up from Fitbit is the wild patterns coming in Allbingo's straps. Along with plenty of regular designs, as well as a couple of protective cases, the company also offers a range of colourful designs - similar to the two shown above.

We're not saying you'll want to wear one of the wacky variations every day, but it could make a nice rotation piece that you break out when you're feeling adventurous. Since they're made from rubber, you should even be able to rep your pattern in the gym.
