The Fitbit Charge 3 may be the most comprehensive fitness tracker on the market and a Wareable Tech Awards 2018 winner, but whether it’s the most stylish depends on the bands you have at your disposal.
Thankfully, unlike some of its rivals, the company’s latest fitness band is versatile, and able to morph quickly between sporty and formal. But hunting down the very best Fitbit Charge 3 bands is no easy task; while Fitbit has its own set of straps, you’ll have to scour the likes of Amazon if you want to save a bit of cash.

Swees Milanese strap
It may not be as slick as the Apple Watch – the device that helped popularize the Milanese loop in the world of wearables – but this budget stainless steel option can smarten up your Charge 3 to levels you previously thought were unattainable.
“If only my fitness tracker could accommodate that sweet magnetic loop like a smartwatch,” you once yearned. Well, yearn no longer, the pain is over – Milanese is here and ready to fit both small (5.5-inches – 8.5-inches) and large (6.5-inches – 9.5-inches) wrists. Even better? It’s available in 12 different colors.

Hamile sport band
A shameless imitation of Fitbit’s own rubber band that comes in the box, Hamile gives you the option to pick up a second sporty band for next to nothing. Perfect for if you want to mix up your bands when one needs a clean – or you just want to add a bit more color – this band is available in a whopping 24 different options.
Like Fitbit’s own, it’s also available in both a small (5.5-inch – 7.1-inch) and large (7.1-inch – 8.7-inch) sizes.

Perforated sport strap
If you thought the Milanese loop above was an Apple Watch hawk, get a load of the this perforated strap – a deadringer for the bands used on the Nike+ edition of the smartwatch. And despite lacking originality, the good news here is that this is the ideal band for exercise. The holes reduce the risk of your wrist getting clammy, and the tucked fit of the band’s underside means there’s nothing hanging off your wrist.
There’s also a big range to choose from, 20 different color combination and sizes for small (5.7-inches – 7.5-inches) and large (7.1-inches – 8.3-inches) wrists.

Allbingo print band
If you already have a couple of go-to bands for sport or formal wear, why not add a dash of pattern to your wristwear? Coming in seven different styles, Allbingo gives you one of the few ways to style your Charge 3 outside the usual bands.
If you fancy something on the arty side, this style is available in both small (5.5-inches – 7.1-inches) and large (7.1-inches – 8.7-inches) sizes.

Mornex leather band
From arty to stylish now, and this leather band from Mornez provides a neat way for your wrist to be both comfortable and look smart. There’s no bells and whistles really here – this one features a standard pin and buckle design and comes in 10 different leather styles. Unlike other options on this list, though, be aware that it only comes in one size, fitting wrists between 5.5-inches – 8.1-inches.

Maledan woven fabric
If you want the look of the Fitbit Charge 3 Special Edition but don’t fancy paying the extra dough, this band from Maledan is the answer to your wishes. Coming in six different woven fabric styles, this is ideal for those who want a more comfortable strap to wear around the clock.
It’s probably not the best for exercise, and may not remain tight enough on the wrist to maintain completely accurate heart rate readings, but it will be by far the best to wear during sleep tracking.

Inky Goat custom leather band
The options above all provide a cheap way to build your collection of Charge bands, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t more premium options to consider, too. Take the leather band from Inky Goat above, as an example. Not only does the handmade band give you the choice of four different buckle stylings to match your tracker, it also comes in both small and medium sizes.
Metal bracelet band
If you’re looking to turn your Charge 3 into more of a fashion piece, or perhaps want to do a better job of hiding its tech-y tracking smarts, this metal bangle from Etsy is just the ticket. Sure, it’s a little on the expensive side when compared to the other options on this list, but it’s perhaps one of the few ways to completely transform the Fitbit’s look. Since this is a link bracelet, you simply have to add or remove to make the band fit your wrist.
