Withings Activité Pop with Custom Leather Armband

My original Withings Activité Pop silicone armband broke, and while I did want to class it up a mite with a replacement band, I really didn’t want to spend $100+ on an original Withings leather armband.

So I went shopping around and in the end settled on a really nice, very affordable Hirsch1 “Forest” leather band. I paid ~€27 for the medium-sized variant in light/golden brown. I spend about half and hour in the store, checking out different armbands, and while I don’t like all of them (different looks, different tastes) they’re all really nice quality!

It doesn’t have the quick release spring bars, tho — which works for me because I don’t plan on going swimming anytime soon, and there have been no issues during/after my usual Fitstar training sessions.

I’m pretty happy with the end result.

  1. Hirsch’s a good brand from Austria, they’re in the leatherworking business for ~250 years by now, which is a crazy amount of time. ↩︎
