Need a Workout Phone Holder for Your Huge Smartphone?

Need a Workout Phone Holder for Your Huge Smartphone?

Jun 14, '22

Given the great workout tracking apps available, it's no surprise that we bring our phones along with us when we partake in physical activity. Because of this, it has become more important than ever to have a workout phone holder in your gear arsenal that's specifically designed to protect and allow access to your phone, no matter its size.

As phone capabilities grow, we’re increasingly willing to carry larger and larger devices like the iPhone 13 Pro Max and the Galaxy S22 Ultra for the technical boons they offer: longer battery life (which is usually the #1 concern of long distance runners), better internal technology, stronger sound (for playing your favorite workout songs), a better camera, and a higher resolution screen.

Since these large screen phones also usually come with a higher price tag, keeping them protected is so important, especially if you're taking it with you for a run or walk. Adding a protective case like an Otterbox or Lifeproof FRE increases the size, but it also gives you peace of mind, in case of a fall.

For many of us, these large cell phones are a lifeline to the world, and so they understandably get toted along wherever we go. Our physically active time is no exception! And if you take your phone on the road or trail, we highly recommend a large phone armband like the Mega i-40 Plus running armband, which holds large screen cell phones with protective cases up to 7 inches tall. We know from experience what a hassle it can be to juggle your phone on a workout and we refused to stand idly by while fellow runners and walkers were forced to carry their phones in their hands for easy access! Keeping a tight grip on a massive phone while you’re exercising causes unnecessary strain on muscles and splits your focus from the workout at hand. At Armpocket, we’re strong believers in keeping your mind on your miles (be they running, walking, or cycling) so we made it a point to provide quality gear that addressed this issue!

 "The fact that it fits my phone is a winner. Even though my phone is rather large, the Armpocket is very comfortable to wear on my arm while working out. Love the easy access to my phone when needed."  --Thomas S.


So many customers came to us asking how to carry their large phones in their large cases, so we finally came up with a phone case for running that not only fits a large phone in a large case, like our iPhone 13 Pro Max armbands, but is engineered to be comfortable and resist sliding while running or walking.

Armpocket Running Armband Strap Features

With our patented V-Strap, your armband is evenly secured on your arm and won’t slip! Built-in ventilation along with memory foam backing is so comfortable that you won’t even feel like you’re carrying a small computer on your arm. And with extra room for storage and an ample touchscreen for constant accessibility, this must-have workout cell phone holder is a no-brainer!


Not an armband person, you say? We promise our memory foam armbands are unlike any others you've tried, but just in case, we also have an equally comfortable belt that's perfect for runs, errands, and travel. And of course, it also fits the largest cell phones and their protective cases. We've got you covered!


With an Armpocket Mega i-40 Plus cell phone holder for exercise or our Active Running Belt, you never need to sacrifice size for comfort. And with the iPhone 14 and Pixel 7 Pro coming this fall, we're expecting even more large phones on the market soon. So grab an Armpocket, listen to your music or favorite podcasts, and get your run on without worry.
