More often than not, fitness trackers and smartwatches come with durable but rather boring straps. Of course, there are a huge number of replacement bands you can find from online retailers. Choosing the right one can be difficult due to the sheer variety. This is why we’ve compiled a list of the best replacement bands and straps for the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 — one of the most popular devices from the Chinese manufacturer and one of the most popular fitness bands overall. Here are the best Xiaomi Mi Band 4 bands you can buy.
Best Xiaomi Mi Band 4 bands:
- Original replacement silicon band
- Avengers strap
- Ollivan metal replacement bracelet
- Biyate bracelet band
- Mijobs leather strap
- KFSO replacement silica gel band
Editor’s note: Xiaomi Mi Band 3 straps are compatible with the Mi Band 4. Read more about it here.
1. Original replacement silicon band
Nothing is better than the original! If you regret purchasing a Mi Band 4 with a boring black strap, you can always remedy that by getting an original silicon replacement band. It is the same size, making it easy to fit onto your device. The materials remain the same too. The band itself is made from a thermoplastic elastomer, while the buckle is made from an aluminum alloy. Most retailers offer black, orange, blue, wine red, and pink — all the colors the Mi Band 4 is sold in.
However, if you want to go one step bolder and opt for bright yellow or neon green, you will need to purchase a non-original replacement silicon band. The good news is that most of those are still durable and cheap — below $10. You can even find long belt buckle versions or colorful bands with floral print.
2. Avengers strap
The Xiaomi Mi Band 4 had an official limited-edition Avengers version. However, it was a China exclusive and therefore hard to find elsewhere. But it’s still possible to get that superhero feeling with the Avengers strap.
Feeling like a superhero is easy with this Avengers strap!
Cheap but high quality nonetheless, it comes in multiple bright colors and with either an Avengers, a Captain America or an Iron Man logo on the button. It is made from silicone and it has an adjustable length, making it an easy fit on any wrist size. The only downside is that you might have to wait a couple of weeks for your order to arrive if you don’t live near China, but it is worth the wait for feeling like an avenger.
3. Ollivan metal replacement bracelet
If you want your Mi Band 4 to look more like a classic wristwatch than a fitness tracker, the Ollivan replacement bracelet is one of your best choices. It is made from stainless steel and it comes in three colors — black, rose gold, and silver.
The Ollivan bracelet is 200mm long at its max length, but just like watch straps it is adjustable with the help of the buckle. The band is also quite slim at 15mm, which means it does not look gaudy or overpowering. On the contrary, it is stylish and durable. It is also easy to install, since it comes with a free adjustment tool and user instructions. However, the Ollivan is not recommended for those that have nickel allergies and it’s not ideal for sports. But if a cool new look is what you’re after, you can’t go wrong with it.
4. Biyate bracelet band
If you want a band that’s fashionable and a little quirky, you should look no further than the Biyate bracelet band. Like many others on the list, it is compatible with both the Mi Band 3 and Mi Band 4.
Tired of straps? Get a bracelet instead.
As its name suggests, it is a stainless-steel bracelet that will give your Mi Band 4 a unique look. The bracelet chain incorporates hearts and comes in five colors — black, pink, gold, rose gold, and silver. The length of the Biyate bracelet is adjustable from 120 to 210mm. Of course, it’s not suitable for sports, but it is more a piece of jewelry than a practical replacement band. Yet, if you want to transform your Mi Band 4 into an elegant accessory, it is one of the best bands you can choose.
5. Mijobs leather strap
If you want the classic leather strap watch look for your Xiaomi Mi Band 4, the Mijobs Leather Strap is a great choice. It is practical and minimalist, but also elegant.
The Mijobs Leather Strap comes in three colors — classic brown, black, and white, but also stunning red. You also choose between silver, gold, black and rose gold for the casing, which is made from stainless steel. The size of the band itself is adjustable from 155mm to 215mm. However, it is PU leather, which is created using split leather and it’s considered artificial. Nevertheless, the band is durable, and the choice of material keeps its price low. And unlike the other watch strap on our list, it is suitable for wearing during exercise without sacrificing style or comfort.
6. KFSO silica gel replacement band
Bold and colorful patterns are in style! This is why we couldn’t exclude the KFSO silica gel replacement band from our list. KFSO offers a whopping eighteen styles to choose from, compatible with the Xiaomi Mi Band 4.
The KFSO straps are fun and colorful.
As you might have guessed from its name, this band is made from silica gel — a comfortable but sturdy material. The KFSO is also the band with the highest strap length on our list — 250mm, making it easy to fit on any wrist. The styles themselves are fun and colorful, ranging from floral, geometric animal patterns to cartoon characters. It’s great for both everyday wear and hitting the gym, making the KFSO band one of the best Mi Band 4 bands you can currently get.
