1. The Welltin Woven Fabric Strap
Working out in a breathable fabric watch band prevents chafing and other unpleasant symptoms that may occur after exercising with a regular watch.

What We Like About the Welltin Woven Fabric Strap
This band is really easy to clean, which is especially necessary after a workout when it gets a bit sweaty. The straps dry quickly after being washed.
It attaches (and detaches) easily and – most importantly – stays securely on the watch. You don’t need to worry about the fabric fraying either because it is woven well and thick.
A really comfortable band that fits well on small or larger wrists.
What We Don’t Like About the Welltin Woven Fabric Strap
If the band is not washed after workouts, the fabric will start to smell. Think of it like your clothes that similarly need washing after exercise.
The pins are found to be a bit small for the watch, therefore, they break or come out without warning. The material seems to be of flimsy quality.

- Easy to affix and remove
- Breathable fabric
- Fits all wrist sizes
- Needs frequent washing

What We Like About the Fintie Metal Band

A professional looking band that feels solid and high grade. Very durable and reliable in that you won’t find the watch pop off the band.
What We Don’t Like About the Fintie Metal Band
While it is convenient to be able to remove links, there is no option of purchasing links to add to the band. The pins are not found inside the band, you must insert the pins yourself;
It does not consistently conform in fitting all Fitbit Versa watches. The sizing isn’t accurate

What We Like About the Coperr Bands
A great substitute for individuals who are allergic to silicone bands, no more rashes. Being less bulky than other bands on the market gives the Versa a more feminine look.
The band easily attaches to the smartwatch, is really flexible and soft. Feel like the original band.
What We Don’t Like About the Coperr Bands
Although the plastic is hypoallergenic, be aware that the metal clasp is not. So anyone with sensitive skin may get a rash from the clasp;
All four of the bands are inconsistent in their sizing. The straps are designed for the wrong ends which makes it incompatible with the Fitbit Versa.
- Easy to wash
- Great for people with silicone allergies
- Flexible and doesn’t chafe your skin
- Feel as good quality as the original
- Very feminine looking, which would not be suitable for men

A strong and secure magnetic clasp that is great for small wristed people.
That means it is not necessary to pierce a hole in a watch strap to accommodate smaller wrists.
It comes with two extra pins for your convenience. This lightweight band doesn’t get in the way or bother you while you are asleep.
What We Don’t Like About the Hapaw Bands
The magnetic clasp seems to drain your smartwatch battery faster. The metal isn’t flexible and is very stiff to move about.
Pulls and catches on long sleeves and other clothing.

A lightweight band that doesn’t feel fragile in any way nor does it feel like you are wearing anything at all.
A no-worry secure band that will not come undone by itself. Included is a convenient tool for removing and installing the bands to the Versa.
What We Don’t Like About the Kimilar Woven Band
We find the wrist clasp to be a bit flimsy. The plastic is not polished smoothly enough and may scratch your wrist.
If the band is not regularly washed after exercising, it may itch or start to smell.
Its appearance reveals visible glue in the areas it is holding the band together

What We Like About the Maxjoy Magnetic Metal Band
The TPU protective case is flexible so it doesn’t interfere with the touch screen and if the TPU screen gets marked or scratched, you can just buff it down and it is gone.
The magnetic clasp holds the strap in place tightly. The stainless steel mesh doesn’t catch on arm hairs. Although it is made out of metal, it is really breathable and doesn’t weigh your wrist down.
What We Don’t Like About the Maxjoy Magnetic Metal Band
The metal band is very thick, giving a bulky look on slim wrists and will discolor over time.
The screen protector is situated in such a way to prevent you from being able to use the side buttons on the smartwatch.
Users have found it a little tricky to connect to the Fitbit if they haven’t changed the strap before.
- TPU protective screen
- Reliable magnetic straps

What We Like About the Fitbit Versa Family Accessory Band
The fact that it is made by Fitbit means that it fits perfectly with the watch and it is not hard to affix. The width looks proportional to the size of the Fitbit Versa and fits securely on the watch.
This sporty looking band really goes well with your workout clothes. The holes in the band make it breathable prevents chafing under the band and it doesn’t get ruined in the shower or when you wash your hands
What We Don’t Like About the Fitbit Versa Family Accessory Band
The band only looks good when worn with sporty clothes and needs to be changed when you wear the Versa to the office.
The style is very masculine and doesn’t look right on a small framed female
The rubber looks cheap. Attaching the band to the watch can be very fiddly.
- It is an original Fitbit band
- Breathable and doesn’t get discolored
- Easy to attach to the smartwatch
- The silicone doesn’t chafe your skin
- Not appropriate for the office
- Looks masculine
The Maxjoy Magnetic metal band wins this face-off. I just love that it is unisex and can be dressed up or dressed down. You won’t have to keep fussing with changing the straps for different occasions as it is smart enough for the office and casual enough for the gym.
The flexible protective casing is a major bonus and keeps your Fitbit Versa safe from scratches and bumps. Overall the band is great quality and reliability, you won’t even need to mess about with removing or adding links as you would with other metal watches, because the magnetic clasp will attach to the band wherever you want them to.
