    Looks like a pretty typical smartphone armband holder to me. Aren't these like a dime a dozen nowadays? You can probably buy them for $5 on Amazon.

    They now sell these really cool Bluetooth headsets. They are wireless. That means you can leave the phone in your gym bag. Or fanny pack. Very cool tech.

    Flipbelt looks interesting but will be a tight fit for the 6+. FAQ say the Note 2 is snug and the 6+ is nearly the same width. Throw in a sturdy case and you might be in trouble.

    Flip Belt FTW

    I have a Flip Belt. It's suuuuuper stretchy so I'm not worried at all about my 6+ fitting into it. I highly recommend them! I love mine so much.

    I personally have found all arm bands constrictive. Looking forward to the Apple Watch for fitness. Wonder how far the phone can be from the watch and retain connectivity.

    I'm waiting for the :apple:watch jokes to start rolling in.

    Saw this referenced on a blog:

    http://portapocket.com they have some pockets sized to fit some of the samsung phones but I don't know if they've got anything for the 6Plus yet.

    i think my iPhone 5 is pretty big on my arm, can't think of what my 6 will look like. A 6 Plus on an arm, just weird.

    Only reason why I'm keeping my 5. I might be swapping sim between phones daily but I'm not running with that thing in my arm. Plus the 6+ doesn't fit in my armpocket.

    Just started using flip belt for running and working out. Great improvement from armbands.

    The other day I saw a lady running with the note 3 on her arm band. It looked ridiculous and uncomfortable.

    Just do what I do.. Use an iPod nano for working out..

    Skinny guy here, I think the 6+ strapped to my arm like in OP's photo would be ridiculous.

    I also recommend FlipBelt. Only thing I have a problem with is getting access to my phone when I do 5x5 app workout. It's a pain to remove and enter my workout info. Other than that it's awesome when running or lifting. Much better than any armband I've gotten (about 3 of them). Should work for my iPhone 6+ but it might be really snug. Hope they make one that is a bit taller to fit bigger phones.

    armbands are really lame. unless you don't really workout. blood flow restriction and they just look obnoxious. if you want to be that guy go for it. i don't need my veins to pop out anymore than they already do.

    Isn't the armband material flexible and designed to stretch and flex along with your arm during workouts?

    You people who use FlipBelt - do you put your device in a ziploc baggie first to keep it dry? (I was reading info at the Flipbelt site.)

    I'm also not sure how I'm going to work out with my 6+

    More so worried about running. I currently run about 60-70 miles a month holding my iPhone 5s in my hand because I've always felt unforgettable with arm bands.

    Hoping to find some sort of hand band like those water bottle ones for your hand since I'm so use to running gripping a phone.
