    Awesome that it worked out for you!
    Glad we could have helped!

    Anyone know if the armpod will fit a bionic with the OtterBox Defender case on it?

    Droid Bionic! *Rooted*

    When I bought the Bionic on the day it came out, one of my first goals was to get a new armband for my workouts.
    Specifically, I'm running the Chicago Marathon on Oct. 9th and wanted something that would not only hold my Bionic, but hold a Bionic with the extended battery on it (I'll be running my RunKeeper App along with my Spotify and wanted to make sure I had enough juice throughout the 4-hr race). So something that accommodated the extended battery (as well as without) was a must for me.

    The other must for me was something that did not have a plastic cover over it (as I think the one you linked to did). I don't like the plastic enclosure because of sweat and potential heat/condensation within the enclosure.

    Found something from Amphipod. I previously only owned a runny fanny pack from them that I used with my D1, but it never failed. I, however, wanted to get away from running with something around my waist and, for the Bionic, wanted something on my arm.

    Found this: http://www.amphipod.com/products/hol...tronics/armpod
    Dude...this thing ROCKS.
    1: The elastics that fit around each edge of the phone accommodate a lot of sizes. SNUG is my Bionic with both the regular battery, the extended battery and, hell, even when I have my Bionic case ON the phone.
    2: No plastic cover on it so the phone doesn't get trapped in a heat compartment or condensed around.
    3: They give you a cover that you can velcro atop the phone if you want to take it out into the rain and such, but you can run without it.
    4: I tested this very armband on my last Saturday training run, which was 20 miles. Phone did not move, jiggle, feel uncomfortable, slip down my arm...NOTHING. Really, I was skeptical about the elastic bands around the corners, thinking that they would have to give when running...not a BIT.
    5: The elastic bands are soft and the felt around the sides are soft. No scratching or risk of scratching the screen while running.
    6: I run an average of 9:20 - 9:40min per mile, so I'm in no way some slow, slacker runner. My arm's are movin'. It was great to only worry about it in the first mile (as I was just testing it out) and not even thinking about it for the remaining 19.

    I know you said above that you bought the brand you linked to...but if you find that you're dissatisfied with it, try the Amphipod out.
    I would not have bought this thing online alone. I was lucky to find just one left at a Runner's Edge store here in Chicago and got to try it on and throw the Bionic in there...shook it around a bit. Otherwise, really, I would not have put stock into those elastic bands just from my computer screen alone.

    This is the best testimonial I could give to a fellow active person looking to take their Bionic out on the run with them.
    Hope it helps you (and others).

    I only use an arm band for the 3 hours a week that I mow the yard. This one works fine for me and is universal!
