Why Use An Armband While Working Out

»Disclosure: I received these products mentioned below for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. 

Using a really good armband while working out helps you feel more comfortable and it keeps your cell phone safe. I had an opportunity to partner with Cost Brother which is an online store for electronics. The product we agreed for me to review is their Armband for the iPhone SE | 5 | 5S. This specific armband is different because it was made roomy enough to fit a Commuter and Defender Otterbox case.

Luckily, my husband has an Otterbox Commuter case for me to test this product out. This armband is made from fabric and is suppose to keep your phone safe from moisture. Because of this I was able to wash it by hand and dry it outside my deck. Cost Brother’s armband came with an universal armband extender for people with larger arms. I had no issues sliding the iPhone SE into the armband. It has a zipper to close the armband to keep from sliding out. It has a velcro to secure the armband around your arm.

I personally prefer strapping it below my elbow where I am able to easily view my screen while working out on my bike. The first thing I decided to do was to test out the charging port and headphone jack and the plugs for those areas fit nicely. Even though I really like this armband, I would have liked it even more if it had a separate department to store my cash, credit card or key.

  1. I need to invest in a good arm band. I bought one a while ago from TJ Maxx but never used it. I ended up giving it to a friend a few weeks ago. I always ended up holding my cell phone or resting it on a machine at the gym.

    1. I used to hold me phone too or rest it on the machine until the phone kept slipping off my hand and I got sick of disinfecting my phone from the all the germs. 🙂

  2. I need one of these… Badly! I stick mine in my sports bra and it gets sweaty… Sooooo not good for the phone! I will be getting an arm band soon!

  3. Wonderful post. Some of them are not adjustable and they always end up being too small for me. What can I say? I have big arms. Lol!
