To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This OEM band should definitely have come w/ the Charge 5, b/c it’s both breathable & durable. A little pricey, b/ absolutely worth it. I would probably buy again, if necessary, & definitely recommend.
OMG - this band stunk so bad that you could smell it even before opening the delivery box! I almost didn’t keep it but figured I would carefully open the box and put it in the garage to “air out”. After two days in the garage and a wipe down with alcohol, the smell went away. My husband wears it everyday.
You can find bands for cheaper but FitBit bands are soft. They last. Easily washable. I have always been a fan. This one even though with lots of holes seems to make me sweat as much as the solid one it came with.
