The most creative way to change your wrist-wearable is not to upgrade or change your smartwatch but use a different band. As a Fitbit user, you are entitled to this feature, change the Fitbit band. Also, you may enjoy the interchangeability sometimes.

Which Fitbit Bands Are Interchangeable?

 I found the following Modes that support the band interchangeability.

How to change the band on a fitbit?

I found these easiest ways to change the bands of different Fitbit devices.

Fitbit Versa / Fitbit Versa 2 / Inspire 2 / Inspire HR

  • Turnover your Fitbit Versa device
  • You will see a small pin that has come out of the band’s surface area
  • Pull that pin to the left side, and you will feel the band is loosening
  • Softly slide off the band from the other end
  • Do the same to the band on the other side of the Versa.
  • Take the band you want to put on
  • Pull down the pin on the left side of the watch
  • Pull that pin to the left side (just like when removing the band), and you will be able to insert the pin on this part too.
  • You will hear a “pop” sound when clicking the pin’s lock

Note: We have explained several bands that belong to various models. These bands may have different widths, lengths, and shapes. But all of them share a similar mechanism to be fitted with the bands.

Fitbit Versa 3 /  Fitbit Sense / Fitbit Luxe

  • Turn over the Fitbit device, and then you will see two latches on two sides of the Fitbit device.
  • Push one latch towards the watch and pull the band softly away from the watch
  • Do the same to the other part of the band
  • Take the band you want to put on
  • Push the band into the hole until you hear a clicking sound
  • Do the same to the other part of the band

Note: Since the two sides of the band don’t have a difference, you may fix the wrong side. Therefore, please make sure you check that.

Fitbit Charge 2 / Fitbit Alta / Fitbit Alta HR / Fitbit Ace

  • Turn over the Fitbit device.
  • You will see there are two metal buckles on both sides of the device
  • Push the buckle while you are holding the clockface tight

Note: You must push from the outer part of the buckle, which will only loosen the band

  • Do the same to the other part of the band
  • Get the new band you want to add to the Fitbit charge 2
  • Hold the band parallel to the clockface and push both toward each other
  • You will hear a buckle-up sound, and that’s it
  • Do the same to the other part of the band

Fitbit Charge 3 / Fitbit charge 4

  • Turn over the Fitbit device, and then you will see two latches on two sides of the Fitbit device.
  • Push one latch towards the watch and pull the band softly away from the watch
  • Do the same to the other part of the band
  • Take the band you want to put on
  • Push the watch into the hole of the band
  • Do the same to the other part of the band

Note: Since the two sides of the band don’t have a difference, you may fix the wrong side. Therefore, please make sure you check that.

Fitbit Charge 5

  • Turn over the Fitbit device, and then you will see two small levers on two sides of the Fitbit device.
  • Press down those two lever latches and pull the band softly away from the watch
  • Do the same to the other part of the band
  • Take the band you want to put on
  • Push the watch into the hole of the band
  • Do the same to the other part of the band

Note: Since the two sides of the band don’t have a difference, you may fix the wrong side. Therefore, please make sure you check that.

Fitbit Ace 2 / Fitbit Ace 3

  • Turn Over the Fitbit Ace device
  • Pop up the watch face
  • Take the band you want to put on
  • Put the watch face and press
