Best Smartphone Running Accessories

We carry a variety of excellent iPhone and smartphone running accessories, making it easy to take your phone with you on the run. Here are a few of our faves:

Nathan Sonic Boom

The Nathan Sonic Boom carries your iPhone in a secure pouch that straps to your arm with a lightweight, moisture-wicking band. Check out the Sonic Boom for iPhone 5 or the Sonic Boom for iPhone 4 & 4S to carry your tunes with you when you hit the roads or trails for your run. The pouch itself has a clear front window that protects your phone and allows you to easily access touchscreen controls.

Amphipod ArmPod SmartView

Carry your iPhone, iPod touch or other similar-sized media player in the Amphipod ArmPod SmartView. You can slip your device into the secure zipper pocket to protect it on your run. This accessory has a comfortable, chafe-free arm band and a clear screen to give you easy access to all your touchscreen controls. It even has an additional padded pocket for a key, an ID card or other small essentials.

Spibelt Water-Resistant Belt

When the forecast calls for wet weather, slip your smartphone into the Spibelt Water-Resistant Belt. Water-resistant fabric helps to protect your device from sweat and moisture. To protect your phone from more intense weather conditions, we’d suggest placing it in a plastic sandwich bag first and then zip it into the Spibelt pouch. This belt is even race-ready, with race number toggles included.

Nathan QuickDraw Plus Handheld 22 oz

For a handheld way to carry your smartphone (along with 22 oz. of hydration), grab the Nathan QuickDraw Plus Handheld 22 oz. The easy-squeeze bottle is simple to open without damaging your teeth, and the secure zipper pocket on the front is large enough to fit an iPhone 4 or 5 with a case. Slip this bottle onto your hand for simple smartphone storage on the go.

    Since switching my phone (and music) to the Samsung Galaxy S3, I’m having a hard time finding something that will fit it…does the Amphipod SmartView fit the GS3?

    The SmartView isn’t going to be tall enough to accommodate the Galaxy S3, but we do have the Amphipod ArmPod Carrier ( that is flexible enough to fit it. Note however that you won’t be able to easily access the touchscreen with the ArmPod.
