Most runners aren’t the minimalist kind—the type to set out for a 5-mile run without a phone, credit card, ID, key, and fuel. But when you’re running with a phone, having a phone armband or a running phone holder helps. You can also use a running belt or a phone holder for running, and that’s why we put together the list below for some of the best phone holders and running products to use while you’re training.
But taking your stuff along isn’t necessarily a bad thing. For safety’s sake, it’s smart to run with some essentials. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a pain to schlep everything along and keeping a deathgrip on your smartphone so your sweaty fingers don’t hurl it mid-stride. But is your juggling act detracting from your workout?
Luckily there’s a better way that doesn’t involve fumbling with your running must-haves. Store them in one of these armbands, waist packs, and more (there’s even a pair of compression shorts!) They’ll give you a sense of security, keep you comfortable, and best of all, bring the focus back to actually running.
Here’s a look at some of the best products, cases, armbands, and options for carrying your phone.
