Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5 Pro may be geared towards outdoorsy types, but it’s a great fit for anyone as long as you get the right band, and these are some of the best bands we could find. Some play into the more rugged aesthetic while others are simply a nice-looking choice for everyday wear. All of the bands are 20mm, as they will need to be to fit the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
Now to be clear, we’d still recommend the regular Galaxy Watch 5 if you don’t want or need the additional features of the Pro model. Like the longer battery life, titanium case, and more durable display. The Pro also has the new route workouts feature. That being said, if all of those things sound great to you, then the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro may be the better choice. And just because it’s designed to be more rugged, doesn’t mean the band also has to be that way. At least not all of the time.
So we’ve put together a list of the best bands for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, with a mix of more rugged and sport options. As well as some that are better suited for everyday wear. This is a watch after all so why not accessorize where you can? Right?

Samsung’s regular sport band that initially came with the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. It’s essentially the same as the band that Samsung launched alongside the new Galaxy Watch 5. But this one comes in way more colors so you have more options for customization.
Since the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro comes with a 20mm band, that means it’s compatible with 20mm bands. So this should fit nicely. It can also be picked up in small/medium or medium/large sizes. Which is just the length of the band to adjust for smaller and larger wrists.
While we haven’t tested this band with the watch, we have tested the Ridge Sport band that came with our Galaxy Watch 4 Classic and that fits just fine. So these should fit as well.
Like with the Sport band above, the Hybrid Fabric band here is compatible with watches that fit 20mm bands. It also comes in small/medium and medium/large sizes, and there are two available colors with a camo print. Gray and Green.
If you like your camo, this isn’t a bad choice.
Hybrid Fabric Band – Camo
This is also on our list for the Galaxy Watch 5 and we definitely think it fits here too. For one, it’s compatible with the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro as well. And there’s nothing wrong with keeping the Pro model even more protected than it already is.
It comes in two different color options and features a flexible silicone sport band with an adjustable metal buckle. It’s also compatible with the BIA body composition measurement and heart rate measurement features. This is definitely one of the best bands for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Especially if you want to lean into the whole rugged aspect of the watch design.
Rugged Armor Pro
The canvas band is one of our favorites for any watch because it offers a soft and comfortable feel against the skin, but mostly because there is a huge variety of color options. So this makes it easy to style the band with certain outfits and make the looks more versatile. Canvas is also pretty durable, and the band is machine washable so if it does get dirty you can just clean it. That in and of itself is a good reason to consider this band over some of the others.
Barton Canvas Quick Release
If you like the idea of a silicone sport band but you simply want a larger variety of colors, this band from Ritche is a nice pickup. It has a cool diamond pattern on the band and comes in a pretty decent amount of colors.
It also has a nice locking feature on the loop to keep your strap in place. Which isn’t entirely necessary but it is a nice feature to have regardless. And at $19.99 the price isn’t bad either.
Silicone Watch Band
Looking for a metal link band? Look no further. This no gap metal link band from Kartice fits quite nicely. Although, this is probably a better fit for the Black color of the watch. While Kartice does offer a silver-colored band, there is no color that matches the gray titanium of the watch case. If the colors don’t bother you, then this is a solid choice for either color for the watch. But the black on black will definitely look better than either color paired with the titanium grey.
Still, this is one of the best bands for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro if you want something a little more flashy than silicone or canvas.
No Gap Metal Link Band
This is the band to go with if you like the Spigen Rugged Armor Pro but don’t want or need the protective case that fits around the watch case itself. The adjustable strap fits wrists that are 130mm to 190mm. So it has a pretty wide range for size. It also has a matte finish which should help keep visible fingerprints from showing up too much, and there are these cool carbon fiber accents.
The strap loop also has the same locking feature as the Ritche band up above.
Yes, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is designed to be more rugged. But that doesn’t mean the watch has to always look like one. This Double Tour Leather band from Moolia with a quick release fastener adds a little style to the watch for everyday wear. It comes in a number of different styles and colors as well. In addition to this pink floral pattern, you’ve got options for beige, black, brown, gray, leopard, light brown, and rose pink.
This is definitely for those who are looking for something more on the fashionable side of things.
Quick Release Double Tour Leather Strap
Rounding out this list is the Bartone Leather Quick Release band. This has been a staple on a number of our guides for watch bands. And for good reason. It’s high-quality genuine leather, it comes in variable sizes including 20mm, and there’s a wide variety of colors.
Much like the Moolia band above, this is a band meant more for style than active wear. So it’s perfect for swapping out the magnetic d-buckle that comes with the watch when you’re done exercising, and wearing this the rest of the day.
