Going on a run is a task in and of itself, so you don’t want to have to worry about the hassle of dropping your phone. Luckily, a range of brands offer armbands that can hold even the biggest of phones on the go. On top of being adjustable and touch-screen compatible, these bands are also sweat-resistant so they are less likely to chafe or slip due to added moisture. Strap on these products, available in different shapes and colors as well, before your next jog for ultimate ease of mobility.
