For runners and even bikers, this requires an enclosure that is handsfree. Another plus is if you can have an armband and an enclosure that can protect your precious smartphone from accidental crashes, water, mud and dust.
The Lifeproof for iPhone 4/4s + Armband accessory is one combo that promise such.
We had a duathlon participant try out the Lifeproof case for iPhone 4/4s with an armband on an actual duathlon race at the Nuvali Dirt Weekend 2012 event last November 11, 2012 in Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
“It was the perfect protective case and armband combo. The armband fit snugly and comfortably in my left arm. Adjusting the armbands tightness was also a breeze. I’m also glad that I didn’t have any chafing nor problems either. The Lifeproof case conveniently snaps on the armband which is really convenient as I can likewise easily remove the my phone from the armband without removing the armband from my arm.
The Lifeproof case protected my iPhone from water, dust and mud that we had to endure all throughout the duathlon trail. I would have to say that the Lifeproof casing + armband + my iPhone are the perfect running and biking buddy for me.”
