    After looking at Verizon store, Best Buy, Target, and Dicks sporing goods... A salesperson at a Verizon Kiosk at the mall told me that Verizon is designing an armband for the Droid that should be available this spring.

    I looked through all the threads here, as well as at all the stores listed, and cannot find one that fits the Droid. Many different Iphone armbands are just a bit too small and do not fit the Droid.

    Although, you need to make sure it's not wrapped too tight. Gotta keep that circulation going.

    Also, any hair on your arm is going to come off when you're done. Not pleasant.


    I could go for a good armband, thanks for the heads up.

    It is evident anyone looking for an armband wants to exercise. I picked up one from Fry's electronics that was for an iPhone that works well with my Droid. Its good to know that one specifically for the Droid is coming. Hopefully before 2.1.

    iphone and droid are pretty much the same size. Using an iphone case for my droid, same logic should apply to arm bands ;)

    If the armband comes out this year, it will be out before 2.1. :D

    Because a droid is just too heavy. Tried running with one in your pocket? I sure would like to put all the droid's features to good use running, but can't. It's not a huge deal now, as there is 2 feet of snow on the ground, but come spring...

    Do you know how heavy the droid is? That is just asking for the boys down below to get crushed when running.

    I'd be interested in one, but I'm afraid my twig arms wouldn't be able to support the weight. :D

    I'm using a generic elastic/velcro arm band I got for free at a balloon festival last year. They're so stretchy that they fit almost any device.

    The thing is... after trying so many different armbands at so many different stores, I'm reluctant to try anything sight unseen. Especially ordering off the internet something that claims "also can fit the Droid."

    I purchased an Xtreme MAc armband for the iPhone at Fry's Electronics and it supports the Droid. I tried an inexpensive one from Ebay and it wound up ripping after a workout becuase of my guns. Here is a link for the band Sportwrap for iPhone 3GS - Black: XtremeMac
    I also paired my droid with these bluetooth headphones. IMO they are better than the Motorola S9 Rocketfish - Rocketfish? Bluetooth High-Definition Stereo Headphones for Most Bluetooth-Enabled Devices - Black

    I found them for $10 used on Amazon and they are the shiznits.

    I bought this one as well, and the droid fits perfectly. I use bluetooth headphones, but the headphone jack on the Droid matches a hole on the armband. The screen works just fine through the plastic/whatever it is.

    It worked best for me to put the phone in right-side up, but then put it on my arm so the opening of the case is facing up. This prevents it from falling out (it fits snug but I don't want to take any chances), and I find it easier to read the screen from this position.

    I just have to say, thank goodness they're finally coming out with a proper arm band. As someone who works out of the house, I prefer to spend the day free and easy with no clothes on, but since I got my droid, my desire to be connected 24/7 has left me forced to wear sweatpants with a pocket to hold my dear droid on me at all times. This is indeed a tragedy, and an unanticipated consequence of our new hyper connected world. I will no longer bow down to our pocketed overlords. My boys will be free once again.

    Praise be to the all powerful spaghetti monster.
