Company Digifit launched The Saddle for iPhone this month. The armband is unique in that it attaches to a wearer’s forearm for easy viewing during a run. Digifit is known for making a popular heart-monitoring app.
“The Saddle’s unique and convenient forearm positioning provides a more comfortable way to workout with your iPhone and let’s you view workout stats, heart-rate charts, duration, maps and music with a simple glance,” writes Digifit CEO Dean Hovey. “This also means you won’t have to break stride, compromise form or pause during a workout to check timely exercise stats, record laps, or interact with other apps and functions.”
The Digifit Saddle has Velcro straps to hold it in place, with the interior of those straps lined with Neoprene (wet suit material) to hold it in place and perhaps keep your phone dry.
The Saddle is available for the iPhone 4, 4S and 5 and sells for $29.95.
