How do I clean Fitbit Charge 2 bands?
For the classic Charge 2 bands made of elastomer, it’s a good idea to clean them regularly even though they are sweat proof. You can rinse it with water (it’s waterproof) or wipe it with rubbing alcohol. It is recommended by Fitbit NOT to clean the band with soapy cleaner. You can, however, clean it with a soap-free gentle cleanser available at most pharmacies.
Special care needs to be given to leather and metal bands since they aren’t sweat proof or waterproof. You can wipe them down with a non-abrasive, lint-free cloth, or even dampen the cloth to remove stains. But be careful not to expose these bands to direct sunlight, moisture, or high temperature which could cause damage to the bands.
