The Best Phone Holders For The Gym

The Best Phone Holders For The Gym

The Debrief: Because you can't possibly go to the gym until you have all the right gear

Post-holiday thought process re. sticking to New Year’s resolutions and getting fit:

'Woo. Yeah. Um hmmm. Feeling that January fitness vibe right now. Bring. It. On.'

Five seconds later.

*lying on the sofa again*

But -we have the solution! Get yourself in the mood by investing in some super vibesy gear, like these phone holders. They’ll instantly make you look like one of those girls from the Nike ads. Promise.

The one all the cool gals wear

The Sweaty Betty Media, £30

This one has adjustable velcro straps and features something very snazzy called a ‘breathable sweat-wicking back’ (no, us neither.) It also has a touch screen pocket and a reflective logo for all you night time runners out there. 

The really robust sporty looking one


EaseFit Sport, Belkin £40

The EaseFit Sport lets you ‘concentrate on your workout, not your device.’ Fab. More time for burpees. You can also fit your keys in it alongside your phone. Winning.  

The clever one that also trains you


Adidas MiCoach, £22

If you feel like you need that extra bit of motivation but don’t want to shell out on a personal trainer, the Adidas MiCoach app is a pretty good substitute. This armband also has a somewhere for you to add in your miCoach CONNECT heart rate monitor - if you’re getting really serious. 

The Nike one because it looks really pro


The Nike Distance Women's Running ArmBand, £25

This one will definitely make you look the part, even if you don’t feel it. Of all of them it’s probably the most comfortable, and features a water-resistant pocket with a clear window for easy access to your smartphone while running.

The slightly naff one but it doesn’t matter because it’s also really cheap


digitronics.ltd, £2.45

It comes in three neon colours. Which is about all we can establish from the product description. On the plus side, you’ll probably have to spend more on postage than the armband itself.
