Despite having Apple Watch, you will still be carrying your iPhone 6/iPhone 6s on your workout routines. And that means you need something that won't come in the way of your workout. You’re right: we’re talking about iPhone 6/6s cases.
The iPhone 6/6s 4.7″ is still not large enough to not fit your bicep in an armband case. And even with an Apple Watch on your wrist, you are going to need an iPhone 6/6s to track fitness stats. Here's a collection of some of the best iPhone 6 armband cases out there:
Best iPhone 6/6s Armbands
#1. Armband Solutions
Looking for a highly flexible iPhone 6/6s armband to let you enliven your workout? Armband Solutions with the superior design can be a fabulous buy.
Made of the premium neoprene material, this armband is extremely elastic as well as durable. Being completely sweatproof, you can wear it for long. It comes with the high visibility LED lights with three illumination modes for your outdoor workouts.
Price: $19.95 on Amazon at the time of writing this.

#2. Minisuit SPORTY
The Minisuit Sporty is a typical iPhone 6/6s armband case that features a near-form-fitting design. The ‘finish' is not as perfect as that on Belkin or Griffin but it's a case that just works. The case can fit arms up to 14″ in diameter. You will have to buy the Armband Extender if your biceps are bulkier than that. The cas also features some reflective strip if you're out jogging too early/too late. There’s a key pocket too. Yes, there's an earphone slot.
Price: $19.95 [$14.95 on Amazon while writing this.] Buy it from Amazon.com
#3. Belkin Sport-Fit
Belkin's at the forefront of high-quality cases for the iPhone 6 (and 6 Plus). The company has not inundated the market with tons of options but the limited set of iPhone 6/6s cases they have is of the finest quality you can ask for. The Belkin Sport-fit is no different. It's a neoprene, anti-sweat, washable case with an adjustable strap. The case comes in a few color options. If older Belkin armband cases are to go by, the touchscreen responsiveness would be good (although TouchID won't work).
As a bonus, if you pick Belkin's Sport-fit for iPhone 6/6s, you will also get six-months free subscription to MapMyRun.

#4. Griffin Trainer
Griffin Trainer for iPhone 6/6s is just an upgrade on the iPhone 5/5s armband. It features an old-school stretch armband that can fit biceps up to 18″ around. Most other features are standard: sweat-resistant neoprene, splash-resistant case cover, form-fitting design which means you can't fit an iPhone 6/6s with a case.
Price: $19.99 [$14.34 on Amazon while we are writing this.] Order it from Amazon.com

RokForm's armband case for iPhone 6/6s is unique. It’s built to fit iPhone 6/6s wrapped in any of RokForm's other cases. It can fit even if your iPhone 6/6s is case-less. An additional feature (that you'll find repeating in almost all following cases) is the key pocket. The RokForm iPhone 6/6s armband features an adjustable flat strap made of neoprene. The case itself is washable.

#6. Tune Belt
Tune Belt is one of my favorite types of armband cases. The main reason: thin armband. Thicker armbands, no matter the neoprene-tag, does cause discomfort when you are working out a lot. The thinner armband is a better option, in my opinion.
What's even more interesting is that this case also features a Velcro flap to coil your earphone around (if it's too lengthy).
Price: $22.95 [$16.95 on Amazon while writing this.] Buy it from Amazon.com
#7. NOuch Armband
I wouldn't call NOuch Armband top-notch or anywhere close to that but it’s a universal large-screen armband case. It can fit even the iPhone 6/6s Plus (or 5.5″-sized phones). Naturally, there is one advantage and one disadnvatage. Advantage: you can fit an iPhone 6/6s with a case on it! Disadvantage: a case-less iPhone 6 might fit in loosely so using the iPhone 6 while on the move can take a little getting used to. The armband case package comes with an earphone (with controls), a key pocket built right into the armband and water/sweat/splash-resistant material.
Price: $29.99 [$10.98 on Amazon at the time of writing this.] Shop it from Amazon.com
Iwotou's iPhone 6/6s armband case resembles NOuch and Minisuit. It features a thick armband, with dual slots for adjusting the strap. This is not much different from most other armband cases. But it's one of the cheaper alternatives.

Shocksock's iPhone 6/6s armband is kind of minimalist. It features a simple design. It's form-fitting (you can’t use this with a case on your iPhone 6) and it looks nice. It doesn't feature those extra bits like a key pocket. But it's machine-washable according to the spec.
Price: $12.95 [$7.95 on Amazon at time of writing this.] Purchase it from Amazon.com
Supcase is one of the coolest armbands for iPhone 6/6s (and for the moment, one-of-its-kind). It's a silicone case with a detachable armband. Yes, that means you can remove the armband and use the case as a simple iPhone 6 shell. When you hit the gym, it can turn into an armband case. The arbmand is stretchable (and fits arms up to 21″).
The only problem with this is that the case does not cover the screen of your iPhone 6. But if that is trumped by the detachable-dual-purpose-feature, Supcase is all yours.

Come to think of it, JOTO is similar to Minisuit in many ways. All the features are right there: a key pocket, a dual cutout for two adjustable armband sizes and the usual works (neoprene, color options, form-fitting design).
