So, if you have an iPhone 6 Plus, or even the somewhat smaller iPhone 6, you may encounter some issues in carrying it during fitness activities. The phones are too big for many belt-clip pouches–plus, a large phone is not very comfortable for many people at waist level anyway–and they often don’t fit into armband holders either. Well, ZeroChroma has come up with a clever solution to this problem with their Armband Mount. Part of the ZeroChroma suite of cases and mounts, the Armband Mount is designed to work with any ZeroChroma case that has a Flux Stand–ZeroChroma’s built-in, 360 degree rotating, super stand found in their Vario Protect, Vario Edge and Vortex cases. Basically, the ZeroChroma Armband Mount is designed such that you can simply click and lock on your compatible ZeroChroma case in one easy motion, and then be ready to exercise to your heart’s content. In addition, the fact that the ZeroChroma case you are attaching to the armband has a 360 degree rotatable feature means that once the case is locked into place on the armband, you can rotate it to any orientation you desire.
As a result of how the phone case is attached to the armband, the phone does not touch your arm, resulting in a much less sweaty experience. Also, the fact that it doesn’t touch your arm once it is attached to the armband means that turning the phone from portrait to landscape and back again is a snap. It’s a very clever system.
I was impressed with the construction of the armband–the material feels smooth and comfortable on the arm and it relies on a buckle system for adjustment rather than the velcro that you see in most armbands. In addition, it has reflective patches on it for safety. Attaching the phone case to the armband is quite easy once you have it positioned correctly, and detaching it only requires a single push of the release button. All in all, it is a well-designed, carefully thought out solution that allows you to exercise easily with your iPhone securely attached to your arm.
