iPhone Running Setup Gear
February 9, 2009 12:02 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for advice on the right way to get set up for running with an iPhone in terms of gear/accessories. Specifically, I'm looking for explicit product recommendations for cases and earpieces. I think I'd like a case that I can wrap around my arm and definitely want a water resistant case. I don't care about being able to advance songs or anything -- it's fine if the list just plays through. I'm thinking corded earphones are the best option because this allows flexibility for listening to music and if I can get one with the iPhone button, ability to deal with calls. What's the best setup to run with the iPhone, thinking calls, music, security and the like??

Based on this link [http://www.runkeeper.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=23], I'm even more confused. I really don't mind paying for quality, but I like to get the best option instead of repeated attempts.

I ran last night with a serious rubber band on my forearm, but I'd really like to see an improvement from that...

Here's a short discussion on the MacRumors forums of a couple of different armbands.

can i convince you that running with your iphone is really annoying? after trying it twice i got a nano. running is a lot more enjoyable when you don't have some elastic strap around your arm holding a noticeable amount of weight

Probably, but I have a spouse who insists I have my phone with me when running anyway because he's somehow convinced I'm going to be accosted in our mild-mannered neighborhood or something of the like... Moving the sim card to a smaller phone just doesn't make sense effort wise.
