00 or more for three bands compared skylet which gives you 12 vibrant colors. Easy to transfer the watch portion into bands. I took the black and orange with when i went on vacation. Celebrated halloween (halloween eve) by switching out the black and orange bands. Stylish and comfort all year long.
The teeth do not fit in the holes and if it wasn’t for the little clasps on the band, it would fall off all the time. A rep from skylet contacted me and worked with me to resolve my issue with the bands. They sent me replacement bands that were perfect for me. I must say the customer service support great. And i should have contacted them first before posting a negative review.
I was a little apprehensive about ordering these after reading the reviews but i have found them to be good replacements for my actual garmin ones. They can be a little difficult to fasten at first but once you know where you fasten them, i just put them into those holes a couple times before i put them on and they do fine. I love that they each have one of the little guards that keeps them from falling off attached to the bracelets. For the price, i think they are a great set that allows me to match my bracelet to my outfit.
Bands seemed like good quality, but the colors turn black around the edges quickly. Also, the band ‘clip’ doesn’t stay fastened and comes undone several times a day. I never removed my original garmin when i had the original band but i now find myself taking this off because it’s too bulky and uncomfortable and i get tired of refastening it all day. I have smaller wrists so the large was a poor choice. Maybe it would stay fastened if it didn’t fit so large?.
This replacement band is the closest that i’ve found to the oem band, and i’ve tried a bunch. The rubber material feels very similar, if not identical to the material of the original factory band. On other replacement bands the silicon material attracts lint and dust; on these the texture is smoother (almost wax smooth) like the original. It’s also slightly stiffer than silicon. The fit and finish is also on-par. The clasp is painted metal, not plastic like the original. After a week the metal has attracted some ‘desk driving’ marks, and i’m sure the paint will continue to scratch and wear off over time – this doesn’t really bug me. Not shown in the picture, mine came with strap keepers – unlike the original where the strap keeper was a wide, smooth loop of plastic that could either slide over the clasp (for extra security) or hold the loose end of the strap secure, the keeper on these is narrower and has a dimple inside/underneath that seats into one of the open holes in the strap, preventing the keeper from sliding. This is great to keep the loose end of the strap secure, but prevents you from sliding the keeper over the clasp itself. Again, a minor difference that doesn’t seem overly problematic as the clasp feels very secure.
The clasping mechanism is not secure. Fit of vivofit inside band is loose, so button is hard to press. Edit: received refund from company. Glad to see they stand behind product, but still would not recommend unless they improve the clasping mechanism.
- quality is very good, no weird smell
- As advertised, good replacement band.
- Great quality bands
The original broke, and a replacement from the manufacturer was almost as much as the device. This is a good alternative, but the latching system in not as secure. It came off my wrist one, but fortunately no damage or loss. For my needs it’s good enough.
Product appears to be a little denser than the band that came with the tracker on purchase. Got the grey and black combo which are true to the colors shown. The ‘teeth’ in the band do not insert quite as well as with the original band, but there’s an additional band that helps hold the band securely. We are pleased with the bands overall.
My fitbit charge device was working just fine but was out of warranty when the glue on both sides of the band became loose and eventually one side fell off. I searched for solutions and found a youtube video showing this band, while not and exact substitute, to be an acceptable replacement. It works just fine at a reasonable cost and 2 day prime delivery plus i have a spare which means this one probably won’t fail.
I received the skylet bands that have the buckle closure and i really like them. I wore one of them for a day to make sure that the buckle did not irritate my skin, which sometimes happens if there is nickel in the metal but this band did not irritate me at all. The band seems like it may be thicker than the other bands, all i know is that the band feels so soft against my skin and the color is bright and pretty. Thanks skylet for this great product.
I go these for my garmin vivofit. I love the colors to these bands, and i can use these for every outfit. The garmin fits perfectly in these, and is easy to exchange the colors. However, i wish they all came with a band piece, you know, the piece that holds the band in place. It comes with two, and i feel it should have come with one for every band. Those things break too easily for the entire set to just come with two.

I ordered the set of three bands. The first ‘worked’ for a year, however the friction fit ‘clasp’ would often let go, and if not careful, could have lost the watch. This band finally developed a tear across one side. So i pulled out band two and installed it. This band had a defect with the inside tab that holds the watch in the band, however i figured as long as it was on my wrist, that wouldn’t matter. Twenty four hours after installing the new band, it broke completely across the strap (picture). No warning or no event such as catching it on something–it just broke. Hope to get a little more mileage. That said, they were very inexpensive.
This has been working well with my vivofit. It did not include the silicon fastner rings (though the description says two rings are included) – i was able to reuse the one from my original garmin band. Update: i re-purchased these bands for my vivofit. The black band lasted for 11 months. The loop that holds the vivofit device in place is finally giving way. I recommend buying a separate pack of the fasteners to help keep this band in place.
Nice colors but the first time i used it my garmin fell off my wrist and by the time i notice it in the store it was no where to be found. My husband has had no trouble with his band. He did say you really have to double check to make sure the little strap is over the clasp securely or it will come lose and fall off. Maybe that’s what happened in my case. So to be fair i gave 3 stars even though after 2 years and many different wrist bands my garmin never even came lose ,let alone fell off.
My wife is unable to wear this, as her very small wrist requires that she use the holes further up the band, so it is very difficult to get the band to close and the wider band interferes with the proper closure. The seller has offered to make it right by substituting a traditional belt-buckle type closure, which works perfectly. Kudos to this responsible vendor.
These bands are identical to the band style and quality that originally comes with the vivofit. My 11 year old daughter originally had an aqua band, which she loved, but after wearing for two weeks non stop outside playing and swimming it was grey on all edges. We tried everything imaginable to clean it but nothing helped. So we ordered these replacements and figured the colors would mask dirt. They are perfect and just like her original band.
Bought these vivofit bands after my original band broke within 10 months. They are not quite up to the original bands but look like they will do the job. Two things i have and issue with. First, the ‘collar’ that slides around the band where it latches is a little narrower and flimsier than the original. Second, althouhg i purchased slate and black bands, both ‘collars’ are black. That being said, i am still happy. I’ll see if they each last longer than 10 months.
EXTRA PROTECTION: Each band comes with a rubber fastener ring/keeper for free to keep the band from coming loose and falling off, you don’t need to worry the band will pop off!
I love the variety of colors available in the pack. I desperately needed a new band after the original band broke off piece by piece. After an unsuccessful attempt to order a band from a foreign supplier, i turned to this pack. There are more bands than i think i will ever use but it is nice to have choices. I have a small wrist so it was important that i find bands that were small enough not to leave a long overlapping tail. This product comes in two sizes. I am pleased with my purchase.
The rubber fastener broke on my original vivifit, so i purchased this set to replace the bands. Pros: rubber material is comfortable, colors come as advertised and fits fine. Cons: paint on metal clasp began scrapping off (see photo). It’s under the wrist so i’m the only one who will probably notice. Clasp comes undone more often than the original band, but the fastener does it’s job and keeps it on my wrist. I took the rubber fastener off this product and put it on my old band. The chipped paint on the clasp was bugging me. Other than that, not a bad replacement.
Ordered these as replacements for my original garmin vivofit wristband. At this price for 2 bands i was skeptical that they would be as good as the oem that came with the vivofit. But they are really as good as the original. I bought the large size and it fit fine on my wrist, it holds the vivofit snugly in the case, and the material is flexible but seems sturdy. As others have noted the ring loop that holds the snap secure in place that comes with this wristband is not as good as the original (this loop seems a little thinner and stretchier and comes only in black). But i used the loop from my original band, and now it is snug as can be. The slate color i ordered is slightly different from original color (more like slate bluish compared to original slate gray color), but i still gave it 5 stars since it fits fine, and gets the job done. skylet colorful fitness replacement bands for garmin vivofit(no tracker).
The band itself is ok, the keeper security clasp (don’t know how to refer to it) is very annoying and does not stay on or in place, the whole tracker came off in the middle of the night. Without my asking, seller reached out to resolve my original 3 star posting. Still feel the same way about product, but they issued refund without my even requesting.
I needed something different for my garmin vivofit and i am so glad i found these. I love changing colors to go with my outfits, instead of having to wear the same color day by day. I just wish i had ordered a bigger size. I like to strap around my leg when walking on the treadmill or in a mall because the garmin doesn’t count steps unless you are swinging or moving your arm.
They fit the garmin 2 just fine, and i like being able to mix and match. Beware, though, the lighter colors can get really dirty and i haven’t figured out a good way to clean them (soap & a brush doesn’t work) yet, so that’s why i didn’t give these 5 stars. The fastener things haven’t torn and i’m pretty hard on them. Don’t need to, but i would buy again.
AVAILABLE LENGTH: [Large: 5.9-8.2 Inches/152-210mm. Small: 4.7-6.8 Inches/120-186mm]. Precise multiple holes design for you to adjust the bracelet to a suitable length.
I’ve been really impressed with these. They fit my vivofit really well and seem very well made, as solid as the original strap. This package even came with a few silicone security bands, in assorted colors, to help keep the strap latched. Not as strong or wide as the original one but they are better than nothing. I must add that i do use the original little dohickey-catch piece to latch my new straps closed. They all came with their own, which i just popped out and clicked the original in. I’m assuming it’s stronger/better than these replacement ones, but they did look pretty good – no obvious signs of inferiority.
My son loves changing out the bands. They are definitely not as much of a sturdy fit as the bands that come with vivofit, but they work. You just need to make sure you use the little loop that keeps the band secured. The bands do tend to become unsnapped, but that little loops saves the watch from falling off.
These are actually made better and last longer than the band that originally came with my vivofit. The oem bands cracked and broke over time. These have not become brittle that way and have lasted much longer. The adjustment on the strap also seems to fit more snugly, so my band does not come un-latched with these the way it did with the oem band. I was originally just going to buy the gray ones, but the multi-pack was a great value for just a little extra money. These should last me longer than i’l probably have this vivofit. It’s easy to swap the bands, so i can match them to my outfits. I definitely recommend this product.
Edit: below you can read my original review. While they were cheap and not the best quality, i’ve updated my review because they read my original review and reached out to offer me a full refund. That’s good customer service, and that’s worth mentioning. The bands weren’t the best, but they weren’t the worst either, and i’m happy with the refund. ———–original rating: 2 starspros: they’re cheap. These are cheap in every sense of the word. They feel cheap, look cheap, and also don’t cost much. So if you want something really cheap that will hold your vivofit for a while until it breaks, then this might be for you. My wife used one of hers for a month or two before it broke, and the second one is holding up a little better.
At first the only noticeable differences between this and the original was the garmin lettering and the fastener having a really light rubber feel. The fastener works fine so it’s no problem. The issue i have is that the band comes on clipped almost daily. The original rarely did this. I also have to frequently adjust the watch back into the band as it seems to start coming off around the edge of the watch face. I think the main difference is that the material is a lighter, more flimsy rubber so it doesn’t stay put as well. Overall i am happy to have my watch back on.
Fit my husband’s garmin device perfectly, quality is very good, no weird smell, sturdy band, feels secure. Was able to slip his garmin device in easily, just in time to replace the original band which was disintegrating.
Band fits tight on the vivofit, will even appear to not fit the device it is such a tight fit, but i think this actually will result in the device being more secure in the band actually. I use the small band, it seems pretty comparable to the original band, mine unfortunately broke after a year. Size seems pretty similar to the original band. The little safety band that was included to help keep the band from coming loose and falling off is included as well (2 of them, both black). My first impression was that they wouldn’t work as well, more like a thick rubber band with this one, but after wearing it for a couple of days, i changed my opinion and think that this might actually work better. On occasion i would notice my original safety band would slide off the clasp area potentially allowing my band to fall off. So far i like this band and would recommend it. I was hesitant to buy it because it didn’t have any reviews and i had read so many bad reviews about other band, but i’m pleased with the product and would definitely buy it again. I’m not one to give 5 stars in general, so same applies here, but i am quite pleased with this product and would recommend it to others.
