Are arm bands good for running?
A good armband helps you do that—it holds your phone without pinching, chafing, overheating, shifting, or bouncing—so you can focus on your form, or the road, or the pizza you’re going to destroy at the end of your run.
How do you carry your Iphone when running?
These are the best phone holder for running options:
- In a zipped pocket of your shorts or running tights.
- Strapped to your arm.
- In your sports bra or chest pouch of a race vest.
- In a secure handheld device.
- Or in a waist belt.
How do I keep my phone from falling out of my pocket when running?
Which armband should you buy for your smartphone?
The Newppon 180° Rotatable Armband and the Vup Running Armband have an intriguing design that allow you to spin your phone around while it’s attached to the band.
Which tune belt sport armband is best for your iPhone?
The Tune Belt Sport Armband comes in slightly different sizes for different iPhone models. We found that model AB91 (what we link to throughout this guide) worked great for several phone sizes, all the way up to an iPhone XR with a Silk Kung Fu Grip case. (Smaller iPhones weren’t as snug in the pouch, but our testers didn’t find that problematic.)
Does Under Armour make an armband for the iPhone XS Max?
The Under Armour Supervent Armband is similarly designed but more expensive. Although the material seemed to be of higher quality than that of many other armbands, we found threading the thick strap through the narrow opening tricky, and Under Armour doesn’t make this armband for the iPhone XS Max and XR sizes. (It’s also sold out currently.)
Should you wear an armband when you run?
The upshot is that if you want to run with your phone and nearly nothing else—and if you prefer the accessibility that an armband may offer over a belt, or feel like an armband is better for your body type than a waist belt—an armband may be for you. But you should investigate all your options before settling on an armband.
