Hello nylon: Smasy Rainbow Band

Staff Favorite

This Smasy band also seems to have been inspired by one of Apple's current watch bands. These bands are made of nylon and come in four color options, including a stellar rainbow design. The company promises to reduce the "sticky feeling" caused by sweating during workouts and offers an 18-month warranty to sweeten the deal.

Lightweight: GHIJKL Braided Band

GHIJKL currently offers a super sporty braided rope wristband for the Fitbit Alta HR. The intricately woven band boasts ultimate comfort with its soft and lightweight material, while the easy-to-adjust design offers a secure fit. The rope band only comes in one colorway, but it's a unique mixture of black and white that'll complement whatever you pair it with.

Top picks

Keep in mind, most of these Fitbit Alta HR straps and bands will offer similar functionality during your workouts. They all fall in a pretty budget-friendly price range, so it'll just come down to your personal preference in design and material type. If I had to pick, the Smasy Rainbow Band with its breathable nylon would be my go-to.

My second option would probably be the GHIJKL Braided Band, mainly because of its neatly woven design and its breathability, which I think is something to look for when deciding on a workout band for your fitness tracker.
