Sure, the band your Fitbit Alta came with is great, but what if you're heading out for a night on the town and still want to track steps? What if you just want to switch it up now and again with different colors or styles?
Changing your Alta's band is ridiculously easy, so why not grab a band for every day of the week and for every occasion?

Henoda leather band
Leather exudes sophistication, so if you're looking for a way to wear your Alta out on the town or to a classy event, Henoda's leather bands are the perfect way to jazz it up.
These bands are made of soft, comfortable, genuine leather and fit wrists sized 5.9 to 7.6 inches.
You can pick one up for about $13 and they come in 10 colors, including "Magic Purple" and "Wine Red".
UMTele silicone band
Looking for a more textured silicone band with a bit of a gold flair? Check out UMTele's bands, which come in packs of six (or individually) and feature a gold buckle and gold casing that fits around your Alta.
The six-pack features black, purple, red, turquoise, blue, and pink and it only costs roughly $10.
All of CreateGreat's bracelets are so pretty that I couldn't highlight just one. If you're looking for a beautifully stylish way to show off your Fitbit Alta, then these are definitely the bands for you.
Bands range in price from about $10 to $20 and feature neat designs, like a Milanese loop and simple links in silver or rose gold.
There are a few bands to choose from, each with three sizes, so make sure you choose the right band and size before you check out.
Looking for a silicone band but want something a bit funkier than solid colors? TreasureMax's bands come in a bunch of colors, patterns, and textures, and start around $6, so you can buy a bunch and mix and match as you please.
They have garish patterns, like florals and hearts, as well as more subdued patterns, like some cross-hatching and other neat line-based designs.
There are a bunch of options to choose from ranging from about $6 - $20, so check them all out and make sure you pick the right one before checking out.
Fitbits are supposed to follow you wherever you go, so you might not want some elegant bracelet that's going to get scuffed up at the best of times. GreenInSync's silicone bands are a harder silicone and a little more rugged than the other silicone bands on this list, making them ideal for more intense workouts.
These come in a pack of 10 for between $5 and $15, so don't be afraid to get a little rough and tumble with them. There are two 10-packs to choose from, each with different colors or different shades of certain colors, or you can opt for a five- or three-pack.
Make sure you choose the right pack and size (small or large) before checking out.
If you're looking for a bit of glam, but still want the durability and comfort of silicone, then check out Tobfit's bands, which come in shiny color options, and in packs of two for about $10. You can get champagne gold with rose gold or silver and gold, or a multitude of other combinations.
These packs come in small or large, so make sure you choose the correct size and colors you want before checking out.
Oitom's bands come in a bunch of different colors and are more of a dress band than an active one. They're in the "Milanese loop" style and feature a convenient magnetic closure. They start around $10 each and can be as elegant (rose gold, gold, silver, black) or as fun and vibrant (blue, yellow, rainbow, etc.) as you like.
These come in small or large, so make sure you choose the right size before checking out. Also keep in mind that, though these are stainless steel, the outer colors are likely a paint job, so after some time, you may notice the color coming off with normal wear and tear. No biggie for only $10. Luckily, Oitom also provides an 18-month warranty.
