    Does anyone know if and where i can buy an armband to workout with that will fit my Droid X? I just gave my wife the old ipod touch and armband. Thanks to the X I can finally consolidate lol.

    I haven't seen any accessories like that yet for the Droid X, but I'm sure they're coming soon. However, for the mean time, I would say any accessory that would fit an HTC Evo would also fit the Droid X. So you might want to check those out.

    Just an idea.

    I tried to put my Droid X in my iPhone/iPod touch armband and it would not fit. I've searched online but even the armbands for Evo 4G are too small according to the dimensions, and I haven't been able to find any armbands for the Incredible yet. I'll keep looking...

    EDIT: I found this armband that looks promising as far as fit goes...It says that it is 6" tall, which should cover the Droid X even with my case on it (hopefully). Let me know what you think.

    EDIT AGAIN: I bought this armband at Target (in the Sporting Goods section rather than Electronics with the other armbands) and tried it out today. It is made very well, but the Droid X is too big for it, even without a case on it. I squeezed it into the armband and almost 1 inch still hangs out, but it is very snug so I don't think it will fall out. I'm hoping that someone makes an armband for the Droid X soon, but until then I'll keep using this one.

    I'm going to try and see if I can find one at a target to see if it will fit. I want an arm band too to use with runstar and some tunes when I'm out for a jog.

    Any more updates on this? I'm very interested in an armband to fit the Droid X. Googling for "droid x armband" turns up a few shopping results, but when you click through, they all look like they're for the original Droid.

    my blackberry storm armband works surprisingly, the top of it is neoprene so its stretches tall enough to cover the top of the X.

    I modified one from OIC that I had that I used to use with my Zune 80gig. It's neoprene so streches to fit the phone. I just cut out the window for a little easier access to the touch screen. The top of the phone sticks out a little but it's snug enough that I don't worry. Then I attached it to the shoulder strap of my Stealth CamelBak and I'm set.

    lmao i like how we're all ghetto-rigging our previous accessories to fit this monster.
    i'm using a belt clip to secure the x to my waist and using my shorts to cinch the phone so it doesn't fall when i run. it works, haha.
    this link for the ebay auction looks promising. i don't like armbands for phones this heavy though...

    Yeah, I find it kind of humorous that they advertise and push Runstar and there are no sport straps to carry it. Another problem I have is that pretty much all armbands are design for larger people. For us skinny types (like a lot of runners) the armbands don't get small enough :p

    Funny, i use a One Touch Ultra Mini glucometer pouch, fits perfect on my belt, had to remove the plastic holder with a #11 blade. I have about 10 $3-5 leather belt clip horizontal and vertical magnetic closure and slide-in pouches from ebay HK on their way.

    This armband claims to fit Droid X and smartphones over 4.5"

    Tune Belt Sport Armband for HTC EVO 4G, Droid Incredible and more (fits larger smartphones and iPhones in protective cases like iPhone 4 in Bumper case)

    Official Website:
    http://tunebelt.com

    Just ordered mine. I will let you know.


    EDIT:
    From the Amazon page:
    Designed to fit HTC EVO 4G, Droid X and other smartphones over 4.5" long

    ***EDIT***

    Ok, so I got the armband and overall it is pretty good. It's not spectacular but it's pretty good. The only major complaint that I have is that the slot that the phone goes in at the top doesn't velcro shut or something. Probably ok since the phone goes in fairly firmly. The armband fits over my arm fairly well and I am 6' tall around 200 lbs with 15% body fat. Someone who is much larger than me would need to get the arm band extender as the velcro was reaching close to the end with only about 2" left to extend and it was fairly snug on my arm.

    Here is a pic with my Droid X in the armband:

    The rubber based adhesive layer of the duct tape may be a carcinogen.

    Remember Uncle Ian in "Alvin and the Chipmunks The Squeakel" doing the Single Ladies dance at the end of the movie? He also used DT.

    I ordered this $6 POS, after all i won't be jogging to impress the MILFs around the hood:

    Thanks for the tip on the case, i just posted about the poor imitation leather quality on the Amzer "Leather" Snapon:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...ed-edition-elite-leather-snap.html#post738825

    Is the Rocket fish rubberized? If yes, it will be hard to fit into the Luxmo LPHTCD2LU4HBK case.

    Mine is not "rubberized" or the silicone version. It is a hard case.
