These are very much like traditional bangle bracelets. These are mаgnеtіс brасеlеtѕ that are open and flexible. To put them on, you merely open them up by pulling the ends apart a little, you put the bracelet around your wrist, and you squeeze the ends together again to make for a good fit. This is a classic magnetic bracelet look, and many people will think of these types of magnetic brасеlеtѕ when you mention this topic.

The advantages of bangle-style mаgnеtіс brасеlеtѕ:

  • Great fit, as they are flexible
  • “Classic” magnetic therapy bracelet design
  • Accessible to get on and off, no clasps to deal with

The disadvantages of bangle-style mаgnеtіс brасеlеtѕ:

  • They can have only so many magnets (no more than six)
  • Some may not feel as though the bracelet is as secure, given it has no closure. Usually, this is only a concern for those with wrist sizes above or below average
