In my last review of my Fitbit Blaze, I mentioned that I had ordered a leather band and a stainless steel band.
They arrived yesterday. I was really pleased with how they look.
As I mentioned in my review post, the leather and stainless steel bands from Fitbit come with a frame. Many third party bands and the Classic Bands from Fitbit do not include a frame.
As you can see, my plum band (this came with my Fitbit) has to be held down as it won’t lay flat. The leather band does lay flat which is nice. The stainless steel has a clasp rather than a buckle.
I really like the look of the stainless steel band. It has a matte finish that I like a lot. The only negative is that it is a one size fits all band and some of the links need to be removed for it to fit me. I will need to find someplace to do that this weekend. The band does come with some extra links for those who need a larger band. Some on the Fitbit help page have complained that the extra links were not sufficient for larger men.
I do like the look of the band on my wrist and look forward to being able to wear it:
I also like the leather band.
For this I had a choice of black, camel or gray leather. My husband was amazed I picked the camel over the black because I usually prefer black to brown. That is true. But, I felt the camel was more versatile. For most of the time I will likely use the plum band. It is comfortable and purple is my favorite color so goes with most of my clothes. Of course, when I want something a little dressier, I will use the stainless steel band or the leather band. Most of the time I will probably use the stainless steel band. The main time I won’t use it would be when I am wearing gold jewelry. In that situation, I prefer the camel band to the black leather band.
The only criticism I have of the leather band is that the leather is a little stiff right now so it is a little difficult to manipulate to buckle the band. I am sure it will loosen up as I wear it so I am not worried. I wore the leather band most of yesterday and it was very comfortable.
