Smartwatches, like the Fossil Gen 6, come with us nearly everywhere we go so it makes sense to have a band that's comfortable and matches our individual styles. The standard Fossil Gen 6 supports a 22mm or 18mm band depending on which model you get. The Fossil Gen 6 Wellness Edition on the other hand falls right in the middle with a 20mm band. Some of the best bands are made by Fossil itself but if you're in the mood for a cheaper option, there are plenty of options.
