Which is the best Garmin Forerunner 955 Solar replacement band?

The great thing about Garmin smartwatches is that many use the same interchangeable Quick Release band design, often in the 22mm width. This means you have a wide range of replacement bands from which to choose for different models, including the Garmin Forerunner 955 Solar as well as models like the Garmin Forerunner 945 that we named among the best running watches.  

When it comes to this premium running smartwatch, the best Garmin Forerunner 955 Solar replacement band is the official one from Garmin, which you can get in a variety of colors and materials, including standard silicone or upgrade to leather or metal. You’ll pay a premium, but you can also be assured of quality and fit. 

If you want to save some money, though, you can consider third-party bands designed to fit Garmin smartwatches like this one. Which one you choose will really depend on why you’re buying it. If you’re replacing the original band because it broke or you don’t like the style or fit, you might want to go with something simple like a basic silicone band in black or white to closely match the two finishes the watch original comes in.  

But if you are looking for something bolder, there are plenty of other options with different colors, including multi-packs like the ones from BabyValley or cool camo like the one from Abanen.
