The running trend has been going on unstoppably for over two decades. It is the purest form of exercise which does not use any additional equipment other than the runner’s body. Runners like to track and understand their performance better with specialized tools. However, the coming of iPhones with their specialized exercise features has changed the game completely. The smartphone revolution has changed the world of running for the better by providing users with a personal, always-on trainer in the form of the iPhone. Runners use smartphones in a variety of ways- they offer pedometers to measure distance covered, exercise music providers, apps and tools for tracking, gauging and improving performance on parameters like calories burned, heart rate and so on. In fact, smartphones can even serve as broadcast devices, posting the runner’s latest performance on the social networks of their choice. However, slipping an iPhone 6 Plus in a tracksuit pocket for running can be dangerous. The large phone can slip out during an intense workout or the earphone cord can prove inconvenient. A lot of body hugging exercise wear doesn’t even come with pockets! This is where an armband case comes handy for the jogger.
