The new Fitbit Versa 2 makes it a convincing smart watch because it is quite elegant, thanks to its flat square dial. It was the square dial with tapered edges that attracted me when I got my hands on it. But, the default band or bracelet doesn’t do this smart watch justice, especially when it comes to everyday wear. It is rigid and can be quite uncomfortable to wear for longer periods of time. Fortunately, like most Versa smartwatches, you can exchange it for an elegant and comfortable leather strap.
Leather straps add class and elegance to any watch, be it the good old analog watch or new age smartwatches, and the Fitbit Versa 2 is no exception. These bands help move from a casual to a formal setting in an instant.
So if you are looking for the leather bands for your new Fitbit Versa 2, we have a collection of the best replacement straps available.
Without further ado, let’s go, okay?
1. Bayite bands
The thin strip means less space for perspiration and water to trap, which ultimately leads to more comfort. And if you wear your watch every minute like me, you should know that this is an important factor.
Apart from that, there are many impressions to choose from. You can either opt for the standard dark colors or opt for a more vivid floral print.
Bayite leather straps cost less than $ 10 and have amassed lots of reviews due to comfort and durability. “I love the thinness of my new band, it is very comfortable and very pretty and was easy to install,” wrote one user.
2. Ezco leather bands
For a strap that costs only $ 11, the details are pretty much perfect. All perforations are evenly spaced and the black loop reinforces the overall appearance. It is suitable for people whose wrists are between 5.5 and 7.8 inches wide.
It is quite popular on Amazon and has an overall rating of 4.3 stars out of 5, and Fakespot estimates that around 69% of them are reliable.
However, it is not a raincoat, even if the Versa 2 is. Immersing it in water or splashing water may cause discoloration spots.
You can choose from seven odd color variations, and the coffee brown one looks classy.
3. Kades for Fitbit Versa 2
The company says the underside is made of hypoallergenic leather, which means less rashes and irritation. Most importantly, it does not cause sweating inside.
Like its counterpart above, the Kades leather bracelet is popular among its user base. It has a 4.4 out of 5 star rating on Amazon, and Propel praises its color, comfort and easy installation process.
4. Horween Fitbit Versa perforated leather strap
There are two sizes to choose from, and the smaller one fits wrists measuring between 5.5 to 7.1 inches. It is available in two shades – Moss Suede and Charcoal.
And Horween genuine leather will last you longer than some of the third-party variants, as long as you take good care of it.
5. Vancle leather strap
It fits wrists with a circumference between 5.5 and 7.9 inches, and there are more than a dozen color options from which to choose.
One of the highlights of this band is the regular spacing of the perforations and dots, which adds to the appearance of the watch.
6. Maledan Slim leather bands
There are two sizes to choose from, and we recommend that you measure the circumference of your wrist before ordering one. After all, you wouldn’t want a long strap tail hanging around, right?
The buckle is made of stainless steel, and so far there have been no complaints of rust if we go through the reviews on Amazon. Speaking of reviews, this leather strap for the Fitbit Versa 2 is quite popular and drew a 4.6 out of 5 stars rating on Amazon.
Besides the floral prints, Maledan has a pretty good collection of plain belts in different shades.

Stay fit and stylish
While leather straps help to accentuate the appearance of a multi-ply watch, it should be noted that they are not one of the most comfortable straps to wear when you sweat in the gym or when you run on the track. In such cases, it is better to invest in a nylon strap or a sports strap. They may not be the most beautiful of the herd, but they are comfortable to wear and, at the same time, prevent rashes and irritations.
If you are looking for a durable silicone bracelet, try those from XIMU. They have enough perforations to let perspiration escape, and the silicone of the band is breathable and waterproof. Or, you can check out Welltin’s nylon bands. They are available in a wide range of colors and are comfortable to wear.
