The Fitbit Versa 2 and Versa Lite are among the best smartwatches available right now, bringing together both form and function. Regardless of which model you have (including the original Fitbit Versa), they all take the same bands and straps.
Best Fitbit Versa Bands Quick Links:
- Overall pick: Leather Band

The Versa range are some of the most stylish smartwatches on the market and there's a whole host of band options to choose from if you want to add some customization.
With interchangeable bands, one of the best things about the Versa is its ability to transition from day to night, and from formal to informal occasions.
There are officialFitbit accessories that make a great pairing, but these also come with a price premium. If you're not looking to spend as much, we've looked at the best third-party Versa bands here, many of which are just as good as the official options for a fraction of the price.

The Fitbit Versa is able to replicate the Apple Watch's looks perhaps better than any other smartwatch on the market, and that impression can be bolstered further by hitching one of these perforated sports band to your device. A carbon copy of the Apple Watch Nike+ model, you can pick this strap up in a number of different two-tone variations, including the black and green option shown above.
The silicone material holds up to sweat and the perforations should also help with heat. If you're after a strap for working out, this is a good choice.

Sitting on the other end of the spectrum to the sporty band above is this dressy metal band from Bayite. Available in five colours â black, silver, rose gold, rose pink and gold â this band fits wrists between 5.5-inches and 8.1-inches and uses a clasp mechanism to keep things locked in place. This isnât one for everyday use, weâd say, but definitely one of the stronger third-party offerings for those wanting to add a bit of bling to their wrist.
Bayite leather band
Price when reviewed: $11.99
Bayite doesnât stop there with its bands, with the companyâs leather Versa options also worth considering. Weâre big fans of Fitbitâs own leather bands, but they're expensive at around ($49.99), and you can make a very tidy saving by instead opting for this third-party band.
The design is a little different, and itâs not the same fancy Horween leather of Fitbitâs own options, but if youâre after a simple leather band coming in a range of colors, Bayiteâs is your best bet. Just note that youâll need to weigh up the sizing (140mmâ191mm wrists) before you look to add this one to your collection.
Kades leather band
Price when reviewed: $10.99
If the textured leather strap above isn't what you're after, these Kades leather bands might suit your needs. There are no fewer than 20 design options but the pick of the bunch is the above Wine Red.
These straps are suitable for wrists between 140mm-193mm and use a standard watch buckle. The inner leather on the strap is made from a hypoallergenic material so should mean no nasty reactions.
Stainless steel band
Price when reviewed: $17.99
The closest thing to Fitbit's premium stainless steel strap without the high price tag. This classy option is a good choice for anyone looking to emulate the stylings of a traditional watch.
The strap can accommodate wrists between 130mm-200mm and luckily comes with link removal tools so you can resize it yourself. Instructions are on the Amazon product page.
Kmasic sport band
Price when reviewed: $9.99
Another Apple Watch lookalike here, and one that closely resembles the entry-level sport band of the Versa rival. Thereâs nothing flashy about this option from Kmasic, but it does come in a range of colours and is considerably cheaper than Fitbitâs own rubbery sport bands.
The only thing you really need to worry about here is the sizing â the small band fits wrists of 140mmâ191mm, while the large accommodates those between 160mm and 210mm.
Youkex colorful strap
Price when reviewed: $8.99
Many of the options on this list provide a replica of something offered by Fitbit or Apple, but this colourful band from Youkex gives you something a little different to the standard, run-of-the-mill options. It can be a little tough to clip into place, like many other Fitbit Versa bands, but this can certainly brighten up your wrist if youâre tired of the obvious, one-tone bands.
Price when reviewed: $7.90
It wouldnât be a third-party band list without a Milanese loop option, first popularised (again) by Apple. The difference here, of course, is the significantly cheaper price at which you can pick up one of the eight different straps.
And with Fitbit itself only offering metal link bands, this is a great option for those who also donât want the faff of dealing with a watch tool. Just make sure youâre picking the right size and youâre good to have this magnetic clasp lock in wherever feels comfortable. It makes adjusting the size throughout the day a breeze.
Bayite thin leather band
Price when reviewed: $12.99
Bayiteâs regular leather band shown above is a good replica of Fitbitâs own bands, but this thinner variant offers wearers something slightly different. Coming in 12 different colours and patterns, this makes the already-light Versa feel even more feathery on the wrist. Definitely a more women-friendly option than many other third-party straps.
Rose gold & bronze leather band
Price when reviewed: $44.99
This is one of the best looking leather options we've seen for the Versa so far. It measures in at just 7mm thick and is designed for wrists sizes ranging from 127mm to 178mm. The brass metal on the buckle nicely complements the skinny band and actually gives that smartwatch a more bracelet feel than Fitbit's official band offerings.
Cotton cord band
Price when reviewed: $41.60
For a big splash of colour, this eye-catching Versa band comes in a range of different styles and band sizes (127mm to 190.5mm). They're made from cotton with a stainless steel buckle keeping the smartwatch securely on your wrist. If you're a fan of Fitbit's new PH5 collection bands, this colourful alternative should have serious appeal and is sure to stand out from the crowd.
