Samsung's new smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, bring home many new changes. Though Samsung switched to Google's WearOS, they still preserved the original look & design of the watches. And like its predecessors, the bands can be easily replaced by another one. All you need to do is pull back the Quick-Release pins and attach the bands, and that's about it.
The ability to replace the watch straps as per your preference gives you the flexibility to pick a band as per your choice. You can switch to a silicon strap or a leather strap during your workout time. And once you are done using it, you can switch back to a leather belt. Cool, right?
So, just in case you are in the market looking for a replacement band for your Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 (40mm), here are the best options. But before that,
If you spend a lot of time in the gym, you might want to look at the Watdpro nylon band. It's an affordable watch band and costs less than $10. The nylon is soft, which makes way for a comfortable fit. Plus, the velcro at the ends makes it easy to put on and take off.
Despite the low price, this strap is durable and doesn't let sweat accumulate. More importantly, it fits securely and doesn't come loose at the drop of a hat. And yes, the installation is easy and simple.
Another affordable and nylon watch band is the one by Morsey. It's a simple loop band and does away with the complexities of buckles or magnetic locks. It's light to wear and the comfortable material doesn't cause rashes. This has been backed by several users as part of their reviews.
The velcro means you can easily fit the band around your wrist. Plus, you get the right fit.
This watch band is popular on Amazon, and several users have lauded it for its comfort, stretch, and durability.
If you want to switch to a more colorful strap on your hand, then the silicone band by XHNee is a worthy contender. In addition, it has a soft texture and which adds to its comfort quotient. Finally, the strap is breathable, and the wide perforations help in the easy evaporation of sweat.
The XHNee silicon band has a standard watch-like buckle. Apart from making it easy to wear, the buckle also ensures that the watch doesn't fall off.
It has a perfect fit, and several users have backed this point as part of their reviews. We'd say that the XHNee band is available in several colors, and the purple one looks rad.
The Toolaik watch band brings a feminine look to the table, thanks to its slew of color-popping prints. From a peppy sunflower print to a soothing galaxy print, there are many to pick from. Like the one above, this strap is made of silicone and has a conventional watch-like buckle.
The band fits well and is soft, which makes it comfortable to wear for long durations. On the upside, it is not too inexpensive but it is not one of the durable bands out there.
The Geak leather band adds a feminine and elegant touch to your smartwatch. This one is a leather band and comes with double stitches at the edges and a metal buckle. Unlike most bands, it is thin and complements the 40mm Galaxy Watch 4 well. It has a solid build, and certain users have lauded the quality of this band.
At the same time, the pins are easy to pull, which makes it a straightforward affair to fix the bands.
It comes in solid colors like Black, Pink, and Brown. But if you are in a mood to experiment, you can check out the cool marble print.
If you do not want to shell out a ton of money but want a sophisticated look on your wrist, the LDFAS leather band is a good option to start with. Though these are synthetic leather bands, they bring a genuine feel to the table. Of course, it has all the usual bells and whistles like double stitches at the sides, equally spaced holes, and a metal buckle.
These bands are long and can easily fit bigger wrists. At the same time, the dual loops at the end help to hold the extra length of the strap and bring a premium look.
More importantly, for the price, you get straps in two colors: brown and black.
But at the end of the day, these straps are made for occasional use. Wearing them continuously over time can wear them out sooner.
Another inexpensive strap for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is the Fullmosa hybrid band. It brings the dual advantage of silicon and synthetic leather. And this combination makes this strap apt for both casual and formal occasions. And did we tell you that it's a looker.
The strap's inner layer has silicon which makes it easy on the skin. So when you wear the smart watch to the gym, you won't feel uncomfortable compared to traditional leather bands.
We have been using a Fullmosa band for quite some time and can vouch for its durability.

Change Is Good
Though the stock band of the Galaxy Watch 4 is comfortable to wear, wearing the same old strap can take out the zing of the smartwatch. These new straps will lend a tad different look. And hey, changing straps regularly also helps from a hygienic perspective.
