I love LifeProof's LifeActiv Armband!
I've kept this amazing product to myself for far too long. If you run, cycle, train, power walk, skate, whatever! This armband MUST be your next purchase.
And, for the record, I am NOT sponsored in any way by LifeProof. I just LOVE this armband! Let me count the ways...
1. Practical quick mount design
This armband has a quick mount design, which means that gone are the days of slipping your phone into an impractical pocket that makes it difficult for you to look at your screen.
You simply strap on the armband and you click on your phone to the clip and fasten it. Voilá! When you want to use or look at your phone you simply unfasten it and detach it by twisting it off the clip. You don't have to miss a beat.
2. Easier, cooler & safer
Who hasn't run and tried looking at their screen to change a song or check their time? You lift your arm up, twist your neck, while trying to keep your pace and not run into a pole. We've all been there and we knew we looked stupid :-D
Or how about when you want to stop to take a picture for your IG or snapchat? With a traditional armband you'd have to take off the entire armband, gingerly pull out your phone from a sweaty pocket, then put it back into the sweaty pocket and strap on the armband again. So annoying! And it kills your time.
3. Adjustable & comfortable fit
If you're thinking, "I can't fit an armband because of my massive GAINZ!"
Do not fret my swole buddy, there's good news for you! When you buy the armband, it comes with 3 sizes of adjustable bands. So unless you are a bonified bodybuilder or a strongman athlete, the armband should fit you.
If you're going to be using this armband for outdoor or vigorous indoor activities then you might as well go the whole 9 yards and also get a protective, water-resistant case to go with it.
LifeProof has a variety of hardcase protective phone covers, of course. Although if you have another favorite brand you prefer, that'd work just fine.
I tested the purple LifeProof cover you see in the picture. It worked just fine and did exactly what it was supposed to do: protect my phone from water, dust or any tumbles. The screen reacted fine to the touch despite being covered up. I used this cover for several months quite happily. Eventually it got scratched up because I use my phone A LOT and I expose it to the elements on a daily basis. So, in my book, it held up quite well. It's not the most fashionable, it's also a bit blocky and, depending on the jack you're using, it can be difficult or impossible to connect to the AUX whilst having the cover is on. So many times when I had to connect to a stereo, I had to pry my phone from the fortress of the hard cover.
The LifeActiv armband by LifeProof is a great and functional accessory for anyone who leads an active lifestyle and wants to have their phone easily accessible to them whilst training.
The only downside is that in order to attach your phone to this LifeProof armband, you need to stick the mounting adapter to your phone case. This adapter comes along in the box with the armband; it's the little black square thing in the the first photo that looks like an iPod. This can attach to the back of any phone cover, however, once you stick it onto the cover, it's not coming off. This means that you can only use 1 cover and you want to make sure it's a cover your phone won't slip out of while exercising. Remember that the phone itself isn't cover by the armband like conventional sleeve armbands, it's only attached to the armband. So make sure you choose a sturdy cover with a screen protector.
I love my LifeProof Armband and can't live without it. So if you, or your special someone, loves being active, then this a great Christmas, Birthday, Hannukkah, Kwanzaa, any occasion really, type of gift.
And, Danish friends, if you hurry, you can still buy this and get it before Christmas right HERE.
