Recently, I’ve been jogging regularly. I’ve been walking a lot (well, for me it was a lot), so I didn’t really see any problem holding my phone, which is in its case, in my hand.

With jogging, however, I’ve found it such a hassle to have something in my hands. Then there’s the issue of sweat. There’s also Human, the app which is one of the major factors that got me addicted to jogging.

So I’ve been on the hunt for iPhone armbands.

There are a lot to choose from, but I am looking at three things: quality, looks, and price.

From what I have read and seen, here are four of the best iPhone armbands you can try if you’re looking for one, too.

SUPCASE Apple iPhone 6 Armband

This armband only fits the iPhone 6, so if you’re not using one, scroll down a bit for iPhone 5/5S/5C-compatible models. The SUPCASE armband’s most appealing features are its silicone skin and the fact that the band itself can be detached from the case. That’s a 2-in-1 accessory right there.

Another plus: it’s only $16.99 right now on Amazon.

It also has reflective markings on the sides of the armband for safety when running at night.

iPhone 6 Armband by MiNE

To be honest, this armband is not the most beautiful accessory out there, but it does have all you need from a sports armband. It’s made of washable neoprene, gives access to the screen, a key slot, etc.

It’s definitely worth a try for its price AND 100% Amazon guarantee. That is, if you don’t like the product, you can return it and get a refund, or have it replaced if there’s a problem.

Get the iPhone 6 Armband by MiNE for $16.95.

iFlex Sport iPhone 5 Armband

The iFlex Sport armband fits the iPhone 5 and is made with lycra and neoprene. Just like the other armbands, the point is to mix comfort and protection, plus a few added features like the key holder and reflector tape. This armband also has a cord wrap which takes away that sometimes surprising feeling that something is creeping on your arms.

Get the iFlex Sport iPhone 5 Armband for $9.95 (normally $37.95).

Belkin Sport-Fit Plus Armband for iPhone 5 / 5S / 5c (Blacktop / Overcast)

The name speaks for itself, and Belkin armbands come in all shapes and sizes, as well as colors. This one is for iPhone 5/5S/5C users.

I particularly like where the key/cash pouch is placed so you don’t have to loosen the strap when you need to buy water or whatever.

LightRunner Universal Armband

Made by Griffin, this armband might just be the most gorgeous armband of them all. It’s got all the bells and whistles – from embedded LED lights for night running to a touch-through window to access the screen to easy access to fingerprint scanner. And more.

Even better, it is compatible with iPhones from 4 to 6.

And the price isn’t too bad at $39.99, too!
