Fitbit Alta Replacement Bands Review

Recently I received a brand new Fitbit Alta for my birthday.  It came with the basic black band, which is fine, but I wanted something fun for an option on occasion, so, I purchased this pack of two bands.
 This pack comes with 8 pieces: a left and right band strap, clasp and silicon securing strips.
 Patterned in an owl print and a floral print, they are bold and fun.
 My original band did not come with the securing strap.  When I put the one included with these bands on, I wasn't really sure what the point of it is.  Since the band secures from the top and pins the bottom strap in place, it is kind of awkward to actually secure the bands together.  It also seemed un-necessary since I have yet to have the bands move around when wearing it without the securing strap, and I wear my Alta almost as tight as the band will allow because I have small wrists.  Therefore, this piece seems pointless to me and I will not be using it.
 These replacement bands attach just as any branded bands do.  They simply snap into place over the Alta's tabs.  I did not hear the tell tale click with these like I do with my original band, but they are securely in place when I try to wiggle them loose.
 I noted that these replacement bands are a bit shorter than the Fitbit branded bands you can buy.  It doesn't make much difference when wearing them except that it adjusts where the holes sit for securing it and might make it a little tighter or looser than the branded ones, but it is not of much consequence.
Overall, these bands are just fine and work as well as the Fitbit branded bands.  If you are looking for a fun print alternative, these will do the job.

* I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and un-biased review.
