    Anyone seen any gym armband holders for the Droid yet? I use my droid as my MP3 player at the gym and wouldn't mind having one of those nice armbands to slide it in.

    Actually, I just got mine in the mail. I'll be honest: it's not an exact fit by any stretch of the imagination. It does obscure the sides of the screen, and the top does stick out of the armband.

    BUT.

    It's a very snug fit, and I doubt it's gonna go bouncing out. What's more, pair it with these Bluetooth headphones (which I also got today), and you've got yourself a very cheap and excellent setup for running.

    I just purchased the S305 headphones today.

    Actually, I am listening to Pandora through them as I type this message!

    I have yet to try them at the gym, but that is the reason why I got them.

    So far, they are really comfortable, and I wear glasses.

    Yeah, this thing was clearly not designed for the Droid. I'm trying to send mine back, but the company (of course) apparently doesn't have a simple return policy. I should have known it was going to be garbage due to the fact that they spelled "protector" wrong in the product description. It has a very "scam" feel to it.

    I'm using this one for now. Amazon.com: Tune Belt Sport Armband for iPhone 3GS and More (Fits iPhone 3G / 2G / 1G, Blackberry Bold / Curve / Storm, Palm Pre and many more): Electronics
    [​IMG]
    I thought I would test it out to see if it is something we would want to carry but I'm still on the fence about it and whether we should stock them. The build quality is good but it doesn't fit exactly right since it is made for iPhone. It has a cord holder which is nice, and if I used it without the case on my Droid I'm guessing it would fit much better. One thing that is nice, is that it holds the phone on the outside of the band so it doesn't dig into your arm like other brands. All-in-all it's not bad, but for someone picky they may be disappointed.

    I picked up the Belkin Dualfit and until they make one specifically for the Droid your not going to find a better one. It is very snug but you can still see the entire screen and the touch screen works perfectly. Plus the armband is one of the more comfortable ones out there.

    Does anyone know of any that aren't snug? I keep my Droid in a plastic case and would like an armband that fits with the case on.

    I'm looking for one to fit my Droid and the body glove case it's in. Haven't found anything yet.

    Got a 4Gig Sansa Clip from WalMart on sale for $25 that I use as my gym MP3 player with VModa Bass Freq headphones from Amazon for $16. This is a killer combo. I just couldn't see strapping this brick to my arm. The bluetooth sounds nice for the gym though. If I were to do that I'd probably just carry the phone and sit it down with my towel and water bottle. For me the Clip works perfect. I can't even feel it clipped to my shirt. Of course I can't take calls on the Sansa so that would be an issue but I go to the gym to work out not to chat but that's just me.

    I got this one from amazon. Its called the sportband from eforcity. I got it really cheap, about 6 bucks including shipping. I have a Seidio case on my phone and it still fits in the armband perfect

    When I'm running I put my Droid in my Amphipod pouch. I use bluetooth headphones.

    I've found that this is a much better setup than an armband!

    It can also carry my keys and ID:
