Let’s face it, smartphones have become an inseparable part of our lives and that includes exercise. Whether you use it to track miles, listen to music, or just in case of an emergency, chances are you carry your phone with you when you go on a run. Here are a few helpful tricks to carry it without it interfering with your workout.

Water Resistant Armband

Several companies are making full-waterproof armbands for runners, in which you can stash your phone as well as other essentials like your bank card or keys. Perfectly wrapped around your bicep, an armband will not affect your stride, and will give you easy access to your screen in case you want to change the music and start or stop your running app.

Shoe Wallet

Shoe wallets are designed to securely attach to the laces of your shoes, and they come with a Velcro closure to keep your possessions safe and sound. A shoe wallet is a perfect choice if you do not want to be distracted by your phone at all while running.

Hidden Pockets

Invest in gear with secure, zipped pockets. Shorts, tights, and even sports bras can come with secure pockets where you can slip your phone and other essentials, and go on your run carefree.
