    Arm bands?

    Has anyone seen arm bands or anything to hold the GNex while I am running?

    Not sure if there'll be ones specifically for the Nexus but maybe you can use a "universal" one? Let us know if you find one.

    I got the Tune Belt AB85. It fits the Nexus with the stock battery and the VZW silicone case perfectly. I had the AB84 previously but it was too small even with phone naked. It was too short so the neoprene had to stretch a bit to cover the top of the phone. My only complaint about the tune belt is that it covered my light sensor. I have to tilt it a bit to make sure light gets into it so that my screen brightens up. Another issue that could be a problem for some of you is that the strap is a bit short. I'm a small guy 5'7", 150 lbs. I think they sell a strap extender.

    I got the NXE Activesleeve. Fits great and you get 2 in the package. No window on it but I'm sure you're not going to be watching a video while running. I got mine at Fry's and you might find it locally but if not, there's always http://www.amazon.com/ActiveSLEEVE-M.../dp/B0042L0BUM

    I obviously don't watch videos while running or working out, I do however look to check time, change songs, and check text messages while working out. I can do all of the above through the clear screen. Plus I think I prefer a band versus a sleeve on my arm. Just personal preference.

    I have this Amazon.com: iArmbands Sport Armband for Droid X, HTC ThunderBolt, Samsung Galaxy S & more (fits larger smartphones and some phones in protective cases): Cell Phones & Accessories originally got it for my droid1. It is very snug with the nexus -almost too small, and i would want a slightly larger size if I was buying again. The stitching holding the arm band to the case started ripping after 6 months, but I sewed it back and have had no other issues. The overall quality is really good for the price. Touch screen is reasonably responsive, although the curved glass makes the plastic stick up a bit. Not really an issue for entering weights and reps and such.

    i use a holder by Amphipod .its adjustable to fit bigger phones. i like it cause it has no plastic sleeve so it will not built up heat or moisture. the only down fall is if you run in the rain your phone could get wet. it has a cover but with the bigger phone like the Nexus its hard to get on.





    amphipod.com. its called the armpod item #252
