About this deal

If you’re looking for a phone holder for your daily or weekly jog in the park, you may have considered a running belt as an option for you. lululemon’s Fast and Free Run Belt is a sleek and lightweight belt that can keep your smartphone safe and secure during your run. They can get in the way – as running belts are larger and you'll likely be carrying more items in them, they can prove more cumbersome, especially if you're sprinting or running on inclines. For example, if you'd lose one litre of fluid during a 60-minute run, you should aim to drink around 250ml every 15 minutes to keep optimally hydrated.

For the traditionalists reading this article, we’ve included an armband option in our roundup on the best phone holders for runners. Armbands worn over clothing are less secure – although some armbands stayed in place both on skin and over clothing, we found they were generally more prone to sliding down when worn over the top of a sleeve. It’s the traditional format used by joggers but there are some alternatives that could provide an even more convenient option for hardcore runners. It's not a good idea to drink your fluids all at once, though, as over-hydrating is bad for your health and your body will most likely reject most of the liquid instead of using it to hydrate you.Not all screen windows are touch-friendly – there was a big mix in how responsive our phone touchscreen was through the screen window. With some armbands it was as responsive as when holding the phone in your hand, and for others the touchscreen wasn't responsive at all.

Of course, there’s also personal safety to consider. Having your phone with you on your run allows you to call for help in the case of emergency. Fluffy Velcro doesn't mean weaker Velcro – after detaching and reattaching the straps 100 times some became fluffy, but this didn't always mean they were becoming weaker. Some armbands were just as strong despite the fluffiness, making it more of a cosmetic issue rather than a serious practical one.The most common phone holder for running is the phone armband. It’s also the most affordable, lightweight and, arguably, the most convenient. Most of these fasten round the upper arm with velcro and are big enough to hold your phone, but not much else. The LifeProof LifeActiv armband solves the problem of having to change your armband every time you upgrade your phone. The vest has straps on either side so you can adjust it to meet your personal preferences, whether you like a tight fit like me or a slightly looser fit. Some joggers don’t like to be without their phone despite the opportunity to take a break from your screen to work on your fitness and wellbeing.
