A galaxy of bands for you to choose from

Good news! The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro retain the same quick-release system for swapping out watch bands that we saw on the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Watch Active 2. This means that you can still use your older 20mm bands if you want. Having the same band mechanism also means you don't need to learn how to swap bands on your new Samsung Galaxy Watch as it's the same process that you'd follow on the Watch 4 series.

Those of you who'd still like to grab one or two new watch bands for your Galaxy Watch 5 or 5 Pro are in luck. Not only do you get to choose from newly released bands for the Watch 5 series, but you also get to have your pick from the best Galaxy Watch 4 bands.

Our top pick is the spectacular Spigen Galaxy Watch Band Modern Fit (20mm). Spigen is a name that one can trust blindly as the brand doesn't compromise quality. The 20mm metal band fits your Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro, as well as select older Galaxy Watches. Available in three colors, the Spigen Modern Fit sports an extremely versatile design that can be paired with a multitude of outfits. It has a high-end finish and the metal clasps are sturdy.

Lerobo's Breathable Silicone Sport 20mm Band is better suited for an active lifestyle. It also helps that this is a 3-pack, adding value. For our leather lovers, Ritche's gorgeous Quick Release Leather Watch Band (20mm) is a match made in heaven. You get a genuine leather band that has been crafted with care and precision, with a wide assortment of colors to choose from.
