Metal Bands are Better than Plastic
Slightly off-topic, but I’ll first note that the name of this product is absolutely ridiculous. I’m not sure how they want people to actually refer to this, especially since a number of companies produce metal bands for Fitbits. For the sake of this review I’ll refer to it as xinkeji’s Stainless Steel Metal Replacement bands for the Fitbit Charge 2.
With that out of the way, when I picked up my Fitbit Charge 2 in February I started developing a bit of a rash on my wrist, around where the plastic band rested. This was clearly because of either where the plastic was resting, or the plastic itself.
I started looking for replacement bands and found a number of stainless steel bands. I ultimately went with a UMTELE Milanese Loop Stainless Steel Metal Bracelet Strap (see, a better product name is possible).
The only issue I ran into that band was the same one I ran into this one: sometimes it would shut down my older model MacBook Pro, if I put it on my left wrist. The magnetic otherwise works just fine, and does keep the band secured to my wrist, even given that I play with it sometimes when I fidget.
I also have facial hair, and on some rare occasions I would get my mustache hair caught in the holes of the band when sleeping or otherwise getting it close to my facial hair. I can’t understate how painful this can be, however it’s pretty rare, and I just need to keep my wrist away from my face.
For what it is, xinkeji’s Stainless Steel Metal Replacement bands for the Fitbit Charge 2 doesn’t really stand out from similar bands. I would highly recommend considering a metal band if you have a Fitbit, especially if, like me, your skin may have reacted to the standard plastic bands. Four of five stars.
