From arm bands to tech-friendly tanks, these products stow your phone during runs, bike rides, or squat jumps.
A smartphone is a workout essential for plenty of people, whether you need an in-case-of-emergency mode of communication on a nighttime run or want it for the tunes to distract yourself through a treadmill session. (No-music marathoners, we admire you!)
But gripping a phone in your sweaty palm is less than ideal during any workout (what do you do when you're jumping rope or boxing?). Plus, finding clothing or special gear that stash it securely can be hit or miss. Below, we've rounded up a wide variety of products—belts, bands, next-level leggings, and more—with super-smart phone storage pockets that you can actually rely on for total tech protection and comfort.
Mind and Body Experts Running Belt
Running belts are tricky—some slip out of place, rub against your skin, or feel bulky around your hips. However, this design from Mind and Body Experts is sleek, durable, and snug, without feeling constricting. It's also wide enough to fit a larger-size smartphone.

Lululemon Tight Stuff Tight II
The North Face Stow-and-Go II Bra
Admit it, you've tucked your phone into your bra a time or two only to have it fall through the bottom elastic and leave you awkwardly untangling yourself. Here's a bra with the perfect solution: a chest pocket that lets you stow it securely atop your cleavage. Don't worry: The material is sweat-wicking and prevents moisture from collecting on your gadget. But be warned that this bra is best when you're upright, not practicing your headstand (the phone will still fall out the top!).
