Have you jumped on the fitness tracker craze yet?

I had a Fitbit Flex that I loved and wore so much that I wore it out.  Actually, I think it went through the wash because it fell off in my sleep and I didn't realize it was in the sheets when I washed them.

Oops.

Once I upgraded to the Fitbit Charge, I was really sad that there is no interchangeable cover for it.  I'm just going to be honest here.  It's kind of ugly.

It's big, it's basic, and it shouts "FITNESS TRACKER" when I wear it.

The options I saw online for covers were basically people wearing a very chunky bracelet over the tracker to cover it.  That might work for some people, but not for me.  

A chunky tracker is enough bulk on my arm.

I decided a quick no-sew cover that I could change to match my outfit was the answer.

I ordered some super-cute fold over elastic and made bunch of covers to wear with my FitBit.

Want to know how to make one of your own? It couldn't be easier.

Measure your tracker (when clasped on your wrist), then cut a piece of elastic to that length, plus a few extra inches for a knot or a bow.

I cut mine  14 1/2 inches so I could tie a bow.  Cut yours slightly shorter if you only want a knot- or just trim the ends when you are done.

Then, simply fasten your tracker on your wrist, tie your elastic around it, and finish off with your bow or knot.  It takes all of a minute or two :)  Once you have it tied, you can simply slide it on and off when you want to change out the cover.

Close up, you can see that the sides of the tracker will show since it is wider than the elastic.  That doesn't bother me.  I am not an obsessive step-checker, and I only wear the wrap when I'm not working out, which is when I check most often.  If I want to see my steps or check the time, I can just slide the elastic over for a second.

From a distance, it looks like any other cute bangle bracelet.

  1. These are awesome! What a great idea! I think you are missing out on a side business though. You could sell these; there would definitely be a market for them!
