I'm not sure the brand of armband I have. I got it off ebay for $5. I was a little worried about it staying on since the band was neoprene so I just bought about a foot of 2in elastic and some extra velcro and MacGyver'ed it(thank you Home Ec for teaching me to sew). For those of you worried that the EVO is too big to run with...I'm only 5'2...it takes up most of my upper arm...but I'm sure you guys are probably much taller and have longer arms. I'm currently using a free app called RunStar. I'm sure there are better out there but this one has a good interface and nice big buttons...easy to use if while you're running. I'm not sure about it fitting into my jacket for ski season but...then I guess I'll just buy a new jacket!

Sounds like your having a great time.

skiing.. with my past luck on the slopes, I'd be scared to have my EVO anywhere on me... LOL

Also, I forgot to add. Unless you're doing sports training, you really don't need to worry about your mile time. Hell, I don't even know why we had to do so much long distance running for baseball. I never had to run more than 200 ft. at a time.

I run with mine all of the time. I have the Moto S9 headphones and they work brilliantly with it. I have an old neoprene band that it barely fits into, wish there was something a bit better on fit

I downloaded something similar and used it on a bike ride. Showed my path on Google Maps, distance, time and MPH. Pretty cool I say.....

Keep up the running. When I went into the USMC (1989), I would run the 1 1/2 mile run in 18 mins with my recruiter. Totally sucked but hadn't run since the last time I played neighborhood pickup sports (football, baseball, etc). Got it down to 12ish on the 1st run in boot camp. My best while in was 20:30 for 3 miles (usually around 22-23). Now, it might take a day and a half....LOL

run with the evo all the time. When I use my extended battery, it doesn't fit in a case. I just hold it in my hand. Bluetooth headphones (rockfish). In the gym, I just put the phone in the corner and walk around the gym with my bluetooth headphones and control the music player or pandora with the headphones. Never a need to carry it around. The point of these types of phones is to be able to sell your gps, mp3 player, etc. I use nothing but my evo for everything.

+1, I use an old cheap Iphone armband and since it stretches I cram my evo in there so there is NO WAY it could fly out.

I run and let CardioTrainer give me updates on how much ground I've covered, how many mph, and how many calories I'm burning. No music at all.

So I've decided to start running with my EVO. The 2 apps that look like what I want are either CardioTrainer or endomondo.

Can anyone give any comparison of the 2 apps when used with the EVO?

What are you looking for? I use CardioTrainer and have been for about 1 month and it is great. It is very customizable as far as how often it gives you updates and what sort of updates you want. I have mine set to alternate every .2 miles with my speed and my distance/time. If you want, it can also serve as your music player, though I don't use mine for that. It has the ability to pause your workout if you stop and you can adjust the sensitivity of that. It will also map out your run and allow you to save it to view later. This has been helpful in reviewing different routes to remember the distances and the elevation changes of specific routes. It also keeps a running tally of how much total time you have run and how much distance you have traveled. That is good if you have a goal for a certain amount of running in a particular timeframe. All of that and it is free. I'd strongly urge you to try it out. As I said, I can't comment on endomondo, but CardioTrainer is outstanding.

I have had my EVO for about 2 weeks and am using it lately to take with me on my runs/jogs.

I use a SPI belt to put it in, works great.

Love the CaridoTrainer app as well.

Thanks for the info. I played with endomondo briefly and then installed cardiotrainer. Endomondo supports using a heart rate monitor which is an interesting feature but the settings of cardiotrainer are more detailed allowing more fine tuning it appears.

At this point, I'm just looking for a workout tracking log and some basic stats. Either looks like they offer that.

Anyway, wanted to get input on these apps when used specifically with the EVO.

Thanks!

Default Run with Evo and S9 BT Headset

I run with my Evo in an armband with a Bluetooth S9 headset. I also have the runkeeper program running as well as my Garmin 305 GPS watch and a Fitbit (just have to avoid rain with all the electronics). Everything works great.

I've been using an app called My Tracks for jogging on a trail for the past few weeks and it's been pretty great. It syncs with google maps online.
My Tracks - Android app on AppBrain
Pretty customizable, and so far has been pretty accurate. Gives you quite detailed stats such as avg moving speed, max speed, time, time moving, elevation stats etc etc....

That's an issue for me - the best runs are in the rain. I need to find a proper sized zip-lock bag for my EVO. I too use the Garmin 305 ( love it) and only remove it from my wrist if it starts dumping. If it dumps I take it off and stick one part of the band in my shorts and let my shirt blouse over it.
I also take them biking, but bike jerseys have the back pockets that make life easier for carrying ID, Electronics, snacks and tools

I tear up the bowls at our local skatepark. I throw it in my front pocket, and fire up pandora and get busy.

Some of our bowls are 12' deep at Hoffman Action park. It is a very aggressive and dangerous environment. That's the main reason i got a case for it.

My last two HTC devices (Touch and Touch pro) went skating with me daily with no ill effects. HTC builds their stuff to last!

If it helps, I take the Evo in the rain and wrap it in some saran wrap (cling wrap or what have you). Even with a few layers, you can still use the screen. I then put it in the pocket of my Camelbak and have no issues.

For a good size ziploc bag, use the "snack" size. They are about half as deep as a regular ziploc, rectangular sized just like the Evo. Works great!

I bought this armband on ebay and it works very well! It is comfortable and holds the phone secure. Plus, shipping was fast and you can't beat the price!

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

Good luck!

Just get an spibelt. You can use an extended battery with it as it will stretch as needed. I put it on and don't even notice it there anymore. It is also way more comfortable than an armband.

I've been running and biking with my EVO with no problems... I also always ran with my blackberries (before I had the Evo) and use armbands. I have had great experience with Tunebelt armbands for them all-

http://www.tunebelt.com/ab83

The model AB83 is sized perfectly for the Evo; and the holes line up just right for the headset opening. It is low profile and cinches nicely so the Evo doesn't bounce. The neoprene is fairly thick and keeps the phone dry, even from LOTS of sweat and even rain. I typically don't bother, but if it is raining really hard you can just put the phone in a baggie, then in the armband if you are worried about it getting wet.

The picture on the website seems to be broken, but the arm band looks just like the one for the iPhone, but it is a bit bigger. I think you can get it from the manufacturer website, but I always just get them from Amazon. Edit- its not a problem for me, but the armband might be a bit small if you have big arms... It fits me just about perfectly, but if you have arms bigger than mine (my arms aren't small, but I don't consider my arms huge either, LOL) you might have to also get the armband extender. The website says it adjusts up to 17".

To track my runs/bike rides, I like Cardio Trainer. I also have MyTracks loaded, but always seem to use Cardio Trainer.

I use a bunch of things for music- Slacker, Pandora, iheartradio, TuneIn, or Cardio Trainer incorporates your mp3 collection.

I love the combo of My Tracks + Pandora. I've been doing something similar with the Palm Pre for more than a year, and the Epic for a month before exchanging for the Evo.

But, it seems like the Evo completely chokes (audio cut outs, Pandora hangs for minutes at a time, etc) when I try to get it to record in My Tracks and play Pandora (even when it's not in the high quality audio setting). This is over 3G but I can't tell if it's a data issue or a processor issue. Either way......is anyone else having this experience or have ideas as to how to alleviate it?

I recently got this armband. It's a universal Motorola armband but it fits Evo very well and it's a very good quality. It has a detachable pouch also which might be convenient sometime.

Try better headphones. Running was a non-issue as I use a bluetooth headset but when listening on planes and watching shows it always seemed a bit muted. I was using some crappy $20 sony buds from Best Buy. Recently I got some Ultimate Ears Fi5 buds with much bigger drivers and now I listen to stuff at 1/3rd volume and turning it all the way up would be painful.

Its also amazing how much more i can hear. Now that the Evo isnt trying to blast me and the headphones have a much better range when watching shows I could hear sounds I couldnt before, like footsteps in the background. It was a bit odd at first, I kept mistaking them for sounds in the real world.

Have you done anything to verify the accuracy of Cardio Trainer? I have been using it for quite a while, but I just finished a half-marathon a week ago and the recorded distance didn't jive with the course markers.

Now it does rely on GPS and such and they said there are certain factors that can hinder the accuracy of it. But it's always seem good to me.

I used My Tracks to record a run last week and it works very well now. It gives all kinds of useful stats, and a few not so useful ones too.

I don't have any concerns running with the evo. Especially this time of year.

Default Options to carry evo while working out?

Hi all

I am a big Guy ...but evo is a little big and heavy.

What is the best solution to carry it while at gym?

Arm band ...would it not look funny?
Belt clip..would it pull your shorts down?
Short Pocket ..bounce around too much while running and the weight would make swing more .. be bothersome

What is your solution?

I think I'll just use a fanny pack while riding the MTB.

At the gym??
At the gym is a simple solution, put it on whatever machine your using..

While im on the treadmill, i sit it up where all my stats are. It stays just fine. I do most of my working out at the gym so it works.
Im about to get this tho, HTC Evo Armband :: Run & Walk with your HTC Evo!.
Soon, looks like the best armband so far, not to big and bulky (if there is such a thing with the evo :/) buttttttttt byeah

Default Armpocket

I recommend the Armpocket. I bought one at Best buy & it is great. It will hold my EVO while in the gel cover.

Not to sidetrack, but I see a lot of people using cardio trainer. I would like to consider this for biking. What is the difference between the free and the paid version? usually I don't mind just jumping for the paid version, but $10 and only 15 minutes to try it out with the new market has me a little more leary.

I'd say try out the free version, you can upgrade it later if you want. I use the free version for both running and cycling, and it does everything I need.

I think the paid version adds a couple more modes, such as an intervals training mode, etc.

i've been using the amphipod airflow endurance waistpack (http://www.rei.com/product/776506)to carry my evo while i train for the LA Marathon. This waistpack sits snugly against the small of my back, so it doesnt bounce, and has enough space to carry keys, energy gels/snacks and my ID. I dont like the feel of armbands, which is why i went with a waistpack instead. I've also been using RunKeeper Pro (now free) to track my workouts.

I stumbled onto Endomondo a while ago, besides stopping smoking a few years ago, and then turning the big 3-0, having this app on my phone has helped me to become motivated to run (as any tracking program probably would have).

I've been looking for something like this for a while, glad I came here, saw HTC Evo Armband :: Run & Walk with your HTC Evo!
Placing my order now, hoping it works adequately with my screen protector (zagg) without pulling it off.
