My fitbit charge hr band started to bubble and split. I had just passed the warranty period, so it could not be replaced. The mechanism of the fitbit was working just fine. A friend suggested i try a fitbit cover, so i bought the french bull cover. It totally covered the split and the bubble and i am now back in business. It’s easy to slip on, too, and the price sure is right. I may just have to buy more and change them out. A great product and great idea.
The product is a sleeve that fits over your fitbit charge (1). I had been looking for a replacement band because my perfectly-working fitbit charge was showing signs of wear. Despite my error, i am delighted with this sleeve. It wasn’t hard to tug into place, and it covers up where the fitbit strap was starting to separate from the device. It has given my device renewed life. It turned disappointment into satisfaction.
Bought one for myself then bought one as a gift after all the compliments i received. I did notice that with the one i purchased my steps were off and heart rate did not always seem accurate so i cut the back a little more around the sensor and where you inset the charger. That seemed to do the trick. Other than that this thing keeps me feeling funky :pfyi; i am a normal shopper. I received no compensation for this review. My reviews are always truthful and from my point of view to paint a better picture of the product for you.
I bought this 4/6/16 and received 4/7. I quickly installed it on my fitbit charge in black. I got the denim color cover. The button on my fitbit fell off 3 mo after. It is impossible to stop the alarm without using something to poke the interior button. I used an earring back and slipped it under the cover and now the button works perfectly. The watchband on the bottom side of the fitbit has peeled off from the underside and part of the top, but this cover keeps it all snug. Despite being less than 2 hours. I’m happy with how this will extend the life of this fitbit charge because this is a pricey piece of equipment.
This sleeve fits well around my fitbit hr, makes it nice to pair with any outfit because of the pops of color. Would definitely recommend and buy other colors. You won’t be disappointed if you are looking to change up the look of your fitbit without having to buy a new one in another color.Also brings an old fitbit back to life.
Great sleeve for my fitbit charge hr, which was literally falling apart. It went on well and fit snugly. My hope was that this would help the fitbit last a while longer, while i researched a replacement. Unfortunately, it died a week later. But during that week, i received lots of compliments on it. So i’d definitely recommend giving it a try, especially if you have a disintegrating fitbit charge hr. Btw my replacement is not a fitbit.

This is a great accessory for my fitbit charge hr. The cover makes my watch look unique from everyone else’s boring-looking fitbit. The silicone material is makes for good protection, as well. I wish this was available when i these had first come out. Even though the part over the screen is a cut out opening, the silicone is raised just enough that would have protected the face from a lot of bumps and scratches. It does take a little pull to get it on the fitbit itself, but keep in mind that silicone is stretchy and strong enough, so p-u-l-l. The cut out opening on the back does not interfere with the heart rate monitor. You can see from the attached photos that the monitor still protrudes out of the opening. Overall, a great addition to jazz up your fitbit. It would also make a nice bonus if gifting a fitbit to someone.
My primary motive for getting this was to help hold my falling apart fitbit charge together (which had an almost entirely broken off band). I slipped it on, and added plenty of glue underneath it. So far it’s worked great, and brought life back to my fitbit, and looks good on top of that. Otherwise, my only option would have been to throw out the fitbit. I even recomended adding this before your fitbit breaks, as it seems to reduce stress on the band at the breakpoints.
This is a good must-have product for fitbit charge hr users. I found that this fitbit product doesn’t last for a year. I’ve got the replacement, but the new unit is falling apart in 6 months. I glued it and applied this sleeve. Fitbit had to include this sleeve in the product. It’s beautiful and tightly holding the product. Just one downside is that because it adds a little distance between my wrist to the heartbeat sensor, fitbit uses more batteries juice. But that’s minor issue for me.
