The best replacement bands for your Samsung Gear Fit 2

by John_A

The Samsung Gear Fit 2 is a pretty good fitness band, and if you prefer to wear yours 24/7, having a couple of extra bands can help your tracker fit your style. The two-tone loveliness of the VIGOSS sport band can blend with a wide array of styles and outfits, but more refined metal bands like the V_moro Milanese loop bands can help your fitness band blend in better during formal events. Wherever you want to wear your Gear Fit 2, we’ve got a band for you.

Trendy two-tone

VIGOSS Sport Replacement Band

This sporty silicone band comes in four two-tone color choices, including a quite fetching navy blue/white and more subtle black/gray. The bands feature two perfectly perforated sections to allow more sweat to escape from your wrist, perfect for long workouts and humid locales.

Pick you style

OenFoto Replacement Silicone Accessories Strap

There are two band styles available from OenFoto in their listing: multi-packs of solid, single-color color silicone bands with an all-metal buckle, and single two-tone bands with silicone mesh and the plug style closure Samsung’s bands use. The color choices here are diverse and the multipacks allow you to swap colors depending on your daily wardrobe or accessories.

Colorful curves

MoKo Soft Silicone Replacement Sports Bands

MoKo offers a wide range of color options for their silicone straps for the Gear Fit 2. Each strap is adjustable to fit small or large wrists (4.96″ – 8.38″) via the same style of metal plug used on the strap that came with the Gear Fit 2. The one-button quick release for locking the watch band makes swapping out bands a snap.

Mighty metal

Maxjoy Replacements Steel Bands

There are two styles of metal bands for the Gear Fit 2 and Fit 2 Pro by Maxjoy: Milanese loop bands and more traditional clamped metal watch bands with removable links. These metal bands are slightly more expensive than silicone, but they offer a slicker look, too.

Edge protection

Moretek Fit 2 Wrist Straps

Moretek knows that fitness bands tend to see a bit more wear, tear, and danger than most smart accessories, and so they offer a rugged strap that offers a higher degree of protection to the edges of the Fit 2’s face. They definitely add some bulk to your wrist — and you need to remove the Fit from the band to charge it — but if you’re hard on your tech, this band is for you.

Rugged style

YANRAN Silicone Replacement Straps

These silicone bands are bulky and durable like the Moretek, but they come in a few more colorful styles. Whether you want some skull and crossbones or zany polka dots, YANRAN has a style for you.

$9 at Amazon

Size matters

V-Moro Metal Replacement bands

Like Maxjoy, V-Moro offers stylish metal bands in black and silver in two styles — a classic metal link band and a Milanese loop band featuring a magnetic clasp. The Milanese bands are sold in small, medium and large sizes, something not often offered for Milanese loop bands and very, very useful for those of us with small wrists.

$18 at Amazon

Secure the original

MDW Security Clasps

Not digging the band recommendations above? We get it. Frankly, it’s quite alright to love the band that came with your Gear Fit 2, but it can come undone at inconvenient times. Get a 7-pack of colorful security clasps that fit over the band, ensure it stays closed on your wrist, and add a pop of color.

$6 at Amazon

How do you accessorize your Gear Fit 2?

I’m partial to the VIGOSS’s navy allure — especially in the Texas heat — but maybe you need a more rugged band like the YANRAN.Whatever band you get, make sure its a band that fits your Gear Fit 2 — and your wrist — well, and that the style speaks to your own sense of technology and fashion.

Updated September 2018: We have greatly expanded our guide with picks from YANRAN, VIGOSS and OenFoto in an effort to give you more options and more band choices. May your Fit 2 be stylish and secure upon your wrist!
