Fitbit bands

I am fairly disappointed in the quality of the Fitbit flex bands. After a couple of months of moderate use, the bands developed deep cracks and finally broke. There are a lot of accounts online and on Facebook from Fitbit users who have experienced similar issues, so the problem is widespread and not isolated.

What makes matters worse, is that after ordering and getting a replacement band from Fitbit, a rash developed on my skin. I did not experience a rash with the prior band color, and my guess is that the material is different from the original one I had.

Now I have two choices, either get another replacement band with the original color, and hope that it does not cause a rash, or give up on the Fitbit completely, and wait for some of the newer health tracking technologies around the corner. An iWatch perhaps?
