Best iPhone 5/5s Armbands: Keep Your iPhone Safe While You Workout

When you go jogging/running, where do you strap your iPhone? What’s the best way to keep the iPhone safe when you work out? Obviously, the iPhone armband is one of the best gym accessories for the smartphone.

Picking an iPhone 5s/5 armband is easy but you’ve got to make sure it fits certain criteria: it needs to be water-resistant to prevent sweat from affecting the iPhone, it has fit correctly which means the straps have to be adjustable and of course, the armband should be light-weight.

Update: Check out our collection of the Best iPhone 6 Armbands.

There are some amazing iPhone 5/5s armbands out there – but most of these are not going to let you access that TouchID sensor. You can still work your way through the apps etc. One simple tip would be to disable the fingerprint lock when you put that iPhone 5s into its armband.
