Part of the reason for Fitbit's popularity is that there are so many ways to make your tracker fit your lifestyle. Whether you're looking to replace that charging cable that you left behind on the plane or you want to wear your Fitbit to a formal event but don't want it to clash with your smoking hot dress, there's a Fitbit accessory to suit you. Let's take a look at some of the Fitbit accessories available.

It's easy to lose chargers, especially when you're traveling. Or because you only have to charge the typical Fitbit every few days, and then the charger gets lost somewhere in the house. And it's a real bummer when that happens because when you can't charge your Fitbit you lose days of progress, fail to keep up in challenges, and more. Luckily, it's not too hard to find replacement chargers online.


Fitbit wristbands

Currently, the only Fitbit with customizable bands is the Flex. The upcoming Alta and Blaze, available for preorder now and shipping in March of 2016, will offer choices of wristbands, frames, and clock faces. For right now, the Flex has an astonishing amount of choices in looks, from colors to styling. Some even look like jewelry. Here are a couple of examples:

They work through your home's WiFi connection and sync with your Fitbit account so that you don't have to input these numbers manually.

Right now, there are only two smart scales on the market that are Fitbit compatible:

They also make great gifts for your fitness-loving family and friends.
