Are you looking to give your Fitbit Charge 5 a fresh new look or need to replace a broken band? You’re in the right place. In this blog post, we’ll discuss how to easily change the bands on your Fitbit Charge 5. Changing bands is a simple and convenient process that’s perfect for swapping in a more stylish look, cleaning the current band, or fixing one that’s broken over time.
Here’s a video that I made.
Step 1: Remove the Existing Band
To begin, simply flip the watch over to reveal the back side. On the back of the Fitbit Charge 5, you’ll find a small button designed to release the band. Locate this button, then press it towards the band. The band should easily pop off, allowing you to remove it from the hardware. Repeat this process on both sides of the watch.
At this point, you should have the small hardware piece separated from the band. If you’re planning to clean the band or replace it, now is the time to do so.
Step 2: Attach the New Band
With the old band removed, it’s time to attach the new one. If you’ve cleaned the original band, simply use the same one. To begin, ensure that you orient the band correctly — the portion with the two small holes should face the Fitbit logo at the top of the hardware piece.
Align the new band with the hardware, then gently snap it into place. You should hear a small click as the band clicks back into the hardware. Give the band a gentle pull to make sure it’s secure. Repeat the process for the other side of the watch.
Step 3: Enjoy Your Newly Styled Fitbit Charge 5
And that’s it! Your Fitbit Charge 5 now has new bands, offering a fresh new look or simply giving you peace of mind with a clean, secure band. You can swap bands as often as you’d like, making this a flexible and stylish tech accessory.

I’m Tom from DIY Life Tech and this is a look at how to change the bands on the Fitbit Charge 5. This is great if you want to swap out the band for something classier, take them off to clean them, or fix a broken band.
It’s very simple. We just flip the watch over onto the back and you can see the little button to release the band on the back of the Fitbit Charge 5. Press it towards the band itself and the band will pop right off. Do this on both sides.
When you’re done, you’ll have the actual hardware, which is very small and easy to remove from the band. Take your new band and make sure it’s oriented correctly. The band that has the two little holes should be oriented towards the Fitbit logo at the top of the hardware piece. Align these, snap it in, give it a little pull and make sure it’s secure. Repeat on the other side.
We’ve got new bands on there. You can easily swap them out as many times as you want. If you found this helpful, please subscribe to my channel. It really helps.
