When you’re working out, you want to have your smartphone on you to not only track your movement, but to provide you with music so you can stay focused. There’s also the off-chance that you’ll want to post up something on Instagram or Snapchat, so you want a way to keep your phone handy, but secured and out of the way for when you’re on the move. Most of the time this equates to an armband, but if it’s plastic or neoprene, it can be a bit of a bother to get it in and out of the pouch.
The folks at Quad Lock were annoyed enough with this issue that they decided to make this Sports Armband as a solution. This ia a dual-stage locking mechanism that will make sure your phone stays securely on your arm, but will easily come off when you want it to. This fully-adjustable lycra armband will fit arm circumferences of 17-38cm or 6.5-15 inches.
You’ll be able to go from tracking your run to taking a call within seconds, snap your phone back in place and take off again without having to fiddle with nestling it safely into a fabric sleeve. This armband by itself will cost around $37, and you can either buy a QuadLock case specific to your type and size of phone, or just get a universal mount so you don’t have to switch out cases. So long as the locking mechanism truly works, there shouldn’t be any fear of your phone leaping to its death.
