    Any recommendations on an iPhone 4 armband/sportband to go running with?

    How are the Nike+ sportbands or remote bands/watches? Do they work well?

    belkin dual fit armband

    I just purchased a Belkin Dual Fit Armband at Walmart for about $20. So far I'm happy with it. The packaging says "for the new iPhone" which is apparently referring to the iphone 4. My room mate has the Dual Fit for his iPod nano and seems to be pretty pleased with it as well.

    Any specific questions?

    The dualfit looks better. I don't think I want a small backpack on my arm. Won't need to pack anything.

    If anyone uses Nike+ with their iPhone 3GS or 4 I started a thread in Tips & Tricks and am trying to get more info on using the headphones controls.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I hear ya. The thing that concerns me about sport bands is moisture getting through the neoprene and triggering the water sensors on the iPhone. I stopped using an armband for that reason since my Belkin arm band was soaked after a good run. That's why I'm interested in the ArmPocket. I've heard that even though it looks bulky, it doesn't feel that way at all.

    Hope you find a good arm band and happy running!!

    I also have the Belkin DualFit. It is great for wearing to the gym or jogging. The armband goes great with my bluetooth headphones. Very convenient for working out.
