Fitbits, Jawbones, and Fuelbands have taken their places on our wrists and changed the way we track our fitness. Having a fitband makes it fun to take the stairs, walk to work, and take the long way to the coffee shop on break. It’s liberating to track and reach your 10,000 step goal because it makes you feel like you’ve used your body a healthy amount. But one of the challenges of wearing a fitband is they’re really not that stylish. When you’re working out or wearing a jacket, it doesn’t really matter what your fitband looks like. But whenever you’re wearing jewelry on your hands or wrists, or when you’re wearing a nice dress, the chunky fitband can really ruin a look.
Designer Tory Burch’s Fitbit line presents one very expensive solution for this problem, but if you’re not up for spending hundreds of dollars to outfit your band, there’s a better way to save your style from ugly fitbands. I use these simple slip on covers made by Design.UX, a Canadian company out to solve all your fitband fashion dilemmas.
Design.UX’s Fitbit Flex covers come in dozens of colours and designs to match any outfit you can dream up. My favourite ones are the gold and silver toned covers from the Sparkle and Classic collections – here are three ways I can wear my Fitbit with any outfit, thanks to Design.UX.
OUTFIT 1: A Night on the Town
This cover in charcoal disguises the Fitbit, making it look more like a chunky bangle than a gadget. I paired it with a single colourful statement ring and a simple necklace to complement this bright bodycon dress for a night out.
OUTFIT 2: Casual Neutrals
One of my favourite outfits recently, this total look from Club Monaco is a great look for daytime as the summer turns into fall. It’s on the warm side of neutral, and I like to bring out the copper tones in the silk trousers with triple-metallic jewelry and the basic golden cover on my Fitbit. Without the Design.UX cover, my black Fitbit would ruin the neutrality of this outfit!
OUTFIT 3: The Office Shirt
When wearing a crisp button down to the office, I find it’s best to stick with simple colour palettes to let the structure and elegance of the shirt take the stage. In this outfit, the classic silver Dress.UP cover brightens up the Fitbit and complements the pinstripes in my favourite polo. A green and silver ring ties it all in and brings out the tones in the minty shirt – and the green in my eyes, though you can’t see it in this picture.
Isn’t that great? At first glance, you can’t even see I’m wearing a Fitbit. As a gift, my friends at Design.UX are giving away some covers to one lucky Trendy Techie reader! The covers are available for the Fitbit Flex – so if you have one of those, enter the giveaway by clicking the link below!
