This is a nice band, I like it for the most part. Sadly I paid $39 and now it's half that price. It's worth half, not as much as I paid, but I wanted a stainless mesh band so here it is.
One of the pins just wasn't right, it popped off 3 times, once as I was pulling clothes out of the dryer, one just seemed to happen, and one was when I hit my bikes handlebar off center. when I first put it in it seemed off a bit and kind of sticky so I gave it a quick spritz of WD-40 and it worked better, but when I hit the handlebar, I gave up and took the pin from the original Blaze and it seems to feel better and tighter. It's silver instead of black, but you really can't see the color.
For those people that complain that there are no instructions, you really don't need them, however, if you click your fitbit app, click the Blaze icon, go to the bottom and click; Blaze 101 Guide Go to the...
Prior to today: I'd give this thing a three-star rating. It was easy to connect to my Blaze and it fit well, but it'd come loose at least 4 - 5 times a day - and as any user will tell you, if your FitBit isn't snug against your wrist, it doesn't work like it should. But these maladjustments didn't usually occur at night, so they didn't affect the device's ability to track my sleep (which is why I bought one in the first place). And even when it'd come loose, getting it back in working order was as quick as a tug on the right side of the band.
Another minor downside was the discoloration of the magnet itself - the part that connected to the rest of the band once it was adjusted. This was, again, a MINOR downside: the black paint started scratching off with regular use. Without scraping against any abrasive material, the color slowly started fading away.
One final nitpick is regarding the degradation of the links that make up the band itself: they started to fray,...
This is the second metal band that I've bought like this and really like them. They look nice and stay on well. I have sensitive skin so the original Fitbit band gives me a rash, and this one doesn't. I paired it with a gold frame for a different look.
