We all use our smartphones for working out, and it’s usually for listening to some motivational tunes to get us through the workout. In the most traditional case, the phone is set in your pocket with your headphone wires trailing out of it. That can be a dangerous game to play, as the phone can easily slip or be yanked out of your pocket on a run or jog.
That’s why armband phone holders for the LG G8 ThinQS are so nice. Wrap the holder around your arm, set the phone inside the holder, and then you don’t have to worry about accidentally losing or breaking your phone during the workout.
Not sure what the best are? Follow along below, and we’ll show you a handful of our favorites. Let’s dive right in.
First up, we’re looking at one of our favorites — the Tribe Water Resistant Cell Phone Armband Case. This one is easily the best armband phone holder money can buy — it not only keeps your LG G8 ThinQS well-secure, but it’s a versatile armband case, letting you use it with a variety of different phones.
Additionally, ti comes with shock-proof protection, screen protection, and even repels water; perfect for those jogs where it’s pouring rain out. It stays secure on your arm, and will work with most phones on the market. The phone holder itself is adjustable, which means you can adjust the strap to fit varying arm sizes, from tiny to large.
In second position on our countdown, we have the Portholic Sweat Resistant Armband. One of the problems with many phone holders is that they accrue odors over time because the fabric material. This one doesn’t, because the Portholic one is made out of a comfortable and breathable material that keeps perspiration at bay. On top of that — there are some really good cable routing features on this armband, so no worries about yanking a pair of headphones out of your LG G8 ThinQS
As an added bonus, there’s actually a slot that your LG G8 ThinQS slips into on this armband, which also works to keep your screen covered and free from scratches. It’s also expandable, which makes it ideal for all arm sizes.
The Tune Belt is one of the more awkward ones out there, but it’s also fairly necessary because of what it’s designed for. This Tune Belt case is actually designed to work with the LG G8 ThinQS, but with it in a case. That said, you don’t actually have to take your LG G8 ThinQS out of the case to use this.
And as you might expect, the Tune Belt still provides you with cable routing and a pocket for any belongings that you want to take with you on your jog.
Comsoon’s Running Armband 360 Case is a little more unique than the rest, actually sitting on a swivel. It still keeps your LG G8 ThinQS very well secured through tie-downs, but the highlight of this armband is that your phone sits on a swivel.
The swivel can rotate 360-degrees, and because of this, you can easily manage your text messages, see your GPS, or make phone calls while you’re on the run. And made with a breathable material, the Comsoon armband repels odors as well.
As you might expect, there’s a spot for cable routing, as well as a pocket for all of your extra belongings you need to take with you.
Last up on our countdown, but certainly not least, we’re looking at the Universal Armband Phone Holder. This one is a favorite of ours because of how slim and lightweight the phone holder is. A lot of armbands out there are bulky, awkward, and add unnecessary weight to your arm — this one doesn’t..it’s just simple. Even with its low profile, it still offers ample protection for your smartphone.
The Universal Armband Phone Holder still has all of the features that you would expect out of an armband — cable routing and a pocket for any goods that you want to take with you, such as credit cards, cash, car keys, extra headphones, and more.
As you can see, there are a lot of excellent armband phone holders available for the LG G8 ThinQS. Just about any one of these will accomplish the means that you’re after, but we do really enjoy how the Tribe Water fits and feels. It keeps your phone really well secure as well, and keeps water far away while it’s, say, raining.
