Rose gold & bronze leather band

Best Fitbit Versa bands: Third party straps to style it out for less

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

Best Fitbit Versa bands: Third party straps to style it out for less

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.

Kimilar sports band

The Best Fitbit Versa bands 2018: Top third-party straps to accessorise your smartwatch

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 the Kimilar 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.

Bayite bling band

The best Fitbit Versa bands 2018: Top straps to accessorise your smartwatch

Sitting on the other end of the spectrum to the sporty band above is this dressy metal band from Bayite. Available in five colours – black, silver, rose gold, rose pink and gold – this band fits wrists between 5.5-inches and 8.1-inches and uses a clasp mechanism to keep things locked in place. This isn’t one for everyday use, we’d 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

The best Fitbit Versa bands 2018: Top straps to accessorise your smartwatch

Bayite doesn’t stop there with its bands, with the company’s leather Versa options also worth considering. We’re big fans of Fitbit’s own leather bands, but they're expensive ($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 it’s not same fancy Horween leather of Fitbit’s own options, but if you’re after a simple leather band coming in a range of colours, Bayite’s is your best bet. Just note that you’ll need to weigh up the sizing (140mm–191mm wrists) before you look to add this one to your collection.

Kmasic sport band

The best Fitbit Versa bands 2018: Top straps to accessorise your smartwatch

Another Apple Watch lookalike here, and one that closely resembles the entry-level sport band of the Versa rival. There’s nothing flashy about this option from Kmasic, but it does come in a range of colours and is considerably cheaper than Fitbit’s own rubbery sport bands.

The only thing you really need to worry about here is the sizing – the small band fits wrists of 140mm–191mm, while the large accommodates those between 160mm and 210mm.

Youkex colourful strap

The best Fitbit Versa bands 2018: Top straps to accessorise your smartwatch

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 you’re tired of the obvious, one-tone bands.

$10.99 | Amazon

Hooroor Milanese loop

The best Fitbit Versa bands 2018: Top straps to accessorise your smartwatch

It wouldn’t be a third-party band list without a Milanese loop option, first popularised (again) by Apple. The difference here, of course, is the snipped rate 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 don’t want the faff of dealing with a watch tool. Just make sure you’re picking the right size and you’re good to have this magnetic clasp lock in wherever feels comfortable.

$7.90 | Amazon

Bayite thin leather band

The best Fitbit Versa bands 2018: Top straps to accessorise your smartwatch

Bayite’s regular leather band shown above is a good replica of Fitbit’s 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.
