Fitbit has several recipes for success for its wearables. One of them is: The fitness trackers and smartwatches are not only health hardware but also fashion accessories. To this end, the manufacturer cooperates with a number of fashion companies to offer classy bracelets. In the past, for example, these were Gorjana, Kim Shui, Pendleton, PH5, Public School, Tory Burch, and Vera Wang.

Brother Vellies joins this list. The Aurora James fashion label relies on traditional African designs and manufacturing methods. In the case of the new Fitbit wristbands, leather is treated with certain oils and dyes so that it takes on a natural patina and a wrinkled structure.
Fitbit Versa 3 and Fitbit sense Price
So far, Fitbit has only presented the new bracelet for the Versa 3 and Sense for the USA. However, we expect an announcement for Germany to follow soon. Otherwise, there is always the option of importing for Brother Vellies fans. The price in the USA is 55 US dollars, so we can expect 50 to 60 euros in this country.
The design of Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3 have nearly identical elements, including the same square face, aluminum casing, and soft silicone strap (other bands are available, and fit both devices). The sole distinguishing feature is a little depression on either side of the Fitbit Sense’s screen that indicates where to position your hand to utilize the electrodermal activity sensor (more on that shortly).
