    Fitbit Ionic watchband

    The Fitbit Ionic came with two blue gray bands (large and small). It would have been nice to have just included one better quality original band. I now have the two which came with the watch and this one. This works better with swimming. However, since they are easy to change, I switch them out sometimes when charging the watch. I can also mix pieces from the original bands to make the equivalent of a medium band, so I have some versatility. I just wish Fitbit carried a decent metal band. I’ve seen third party metal bands listed on the internet, but not available at Best Buy.

    I have owned several fitbits since they started their fitness watches several years ago. The latest one I had lasted for several years. I was hesitant on upgrading due to all the other options out there. I decided to give it a try. So far, the watch is great, I get all the awesome features that I had before, plus water proof. Also, I like that fitbit figured out a way to improve their bands. I like that I can change the bands. I purchased this sports band thinking I was going to use it once in a while, however, it is so comfortable that I have been using it every day.

    Versatile band for active lifestyle

    This band is great for active wearers and those that want a band that can handle the elements. Only complaint was the difficulty in taking on and off band from wrist. Band has two clasps that keep band from coming undone and excess from slipping out of watch strap. Almost have to yank hard to undo it. Squeezing strap and pulling at the same time. But it definitely keep fit bit in place so won't distract you while active.

    Have been looking for a more sportier band which makes the face of the watch ( Fit bit IONIC) WATCH more appealing,from the standard band that the watch originally came with. Don't know why Fit Bit uses the colors that they do .It does no justice to the over all appeal of the watch.This black sport band did the trick..

    This band works best with my skin

    The band that ships with the base unit caused a sickly sweet smell and top layer skin cells to stink. I have never experienced this with any watch band before. This sports replacement allows much more airflow and a bit of give when needed if I accidentally bump/snag the watch. Highly recommend and it looks stylishly futuristic with the watch.

    Okay, but not as good as the original

    I bought this band because the original band that came with my FitBit Ionic broke. I like that it's breathable, but the clamp for the buckle has too many issues with fastening due to the number of holes in the straps. I'd only recommend it because all the other bands are at least $20.00 more than this one.

    Good band for athletic use

    This band is great for use when working out or doing any activity that could cause one to sweat. The breathable holes in the band help keep the wrist cool. It can sometimes be hard to switch between bands as you have to get it just right to click into place, but overall it is a lot easier and more durable to switch out than other bands.

    This band looks great with the Ionic smartwatch. Definitely better than the default band that is included. My only gripe with this sleek band is that it is sometimes difficult to rehook for minor adjustments because of all of the grooves, which allows this band to be very secure on the wrist.

    I was looking for a watch that had a great look and a longer battery time. Even though I wasn’t initially into this watch, I decided to take a chance and purchase it. I’m very happy I did because it is very sturdy, battery lasts a while, and the graphics and features are excellent on it. Love this watch and don’t regret getting it!

    Fitbit - Sport Band Large Watch Strap for Ionic

    My original band pulled apart after a year of daily usage, I liked it, got this one because it was on sale. It does what it is supposed to do, but I prefer the original. It has 2 hooks to connect it together, but it is harder to keep it at the same size each time you put it on.

    The Fitbit brand bands are excellent. This one is light weight and way more comfortable than the original that comes with the watch. Only wish they had more options like they do for the Versa. Own the cobalt blue & black. Leather one is next on the buy list for me.

    Fitbit Ionic Sport Band

    Along with my Ionic purchase, I also bought the Fitbit sport band, which is a must=have option. It is heavy-duty, and easy to install and swap with the band that comes with the device. I use this at the gym or when cycling- since it has several holes in it, it does not trap sweat and dries out quickly.

    I got this watch recently and use it at the gym with my wireless head phones to listen to music I loaded on the watch. I really like the fact that it tracks my sleep and steps. I'll be updating my review after I've had more time tryout all of the functions the watch has.

    I've learned to go with Fitbit branded wrist straps even though they are more expensive. I tried multiple other off-brands but they never last and feel cheaply made. Kudos to Fitbit for making an excellent product.

    Satisfied with many of the features but disappointed in the heart rate monitor function. Yesterday walked outside said my heart rate was 189. I started jogging and it dropped to 121. No reliable and expect better for the money.

    Works well for swims and workouts and i like that the holes allow air to get in and dry sweat and water. Only complaint is that the strap sometimes loosens and can fall off, but you usually feel that it is loosening. Other than that. It's what i expected.

    I'm a FitBit fan. Love the Ionic options and direction FitBit went in creating this product. Best mapping and heart rate monitoring compared to peers. For the cheaper price compared to Apple - arguably worth it to most.

    Excellent Replacement Black Band

    Very solid Black Sport Band replacement for Ionic. Particularly good, is that the end locks in to the loop, with little rubber pegs fitting into the holes in band. Almost premium, for low price.

    This band fit my wrist well. It is durable and water proof. Even after 8 months the band look new. I would recommend this band to anyone who is looking for a sports band for their Fitbit device.

    This band is super breathable and comfy. Didn’t take any time to break in and doesn’t get as gross as the original band did. It does however catch a lot of dirt and dust in the tiny holes. That’s a pain, but I love this band.
