Is the iPhone 6/6s good for exercise?

    I rememer that I used by old 3gs as an iPad while I was doing exercise to listen to music. Given how thin the new iPhone 6/6s are, are they also a good fit for exercise or their new thinness and increased size has made them less resistant and more danger prone for exercising?

    My old 3gs did resist several falls (not as a nokia of course) I wonder if the newer iPhones are unsuitable for running and such.

    Thank you for reading!

    Thanks to new sensors, if you have a good case capable to keep iPhone 6 or 6s on your arm firmly, then great. I am sure there are such cases.
    But I would better recommend you to choose a Fitbit device or alike to use it, rather than using an iPhone. More portable, and sensors are better, maybe.

    I don't use my iPhone 6+ for exercise for obvious reasons but the 6 should be ok with a good case/band.

    Actually in tests the iPhone is more accurate in your stats, i.e. Steps, than the other Fitbits and like.

    I use mine in a flip belt mainly to connect with earbuds.
