W2R1

Yay, I’ve completed W2R1!! 😁

Does anyone have any advice on something to carry iPhone7plus in whilst running. It’s pretty big and wondered if it fits in those belt things I’ve seen a few posts about? Sorry to repeat a question that’s probably been asked a million times! TIA

I have an LG G5 which is one of the larger phones. I brought a running belt and I struggle to get it in especially with headphones plugged in!

I use a FlipBelt Zipper to carry my old, small iPhone 5 (with case). Feels comfortable and secure. They claim on the website it'll fit an iPhone 7 plus as well.

Hi, you can buy an phone holder/arm band on eBay for a few pounds. Kat

Running belt is probably better than an armband. They tell you on them what models they fit. Mine has an inner pocket that keeps the phone snug and in the right place so you can use the touch screen through the plastic front and then extra space for keys etc. Less than a tenner from Amazon if I remember rightly.

this is just me as my running clothes don't have pockets but I carry my phone in a backpack. I also have wireless earphones (christmas gift from beloved Mr Psycho). Don't know if that's any help to you?

Thank-you, I think I’m gonna go with a belt but I’m definitely going to buy some wireless headphones-only on week 2 but my headphone cable is driving me crazy!!

I have a karrimore belt from sports direct. It has a small zip pocket for keys etc and a larger one for phone. I have an iPhone 6s and there’s plenty of room. I got it in a charity shop for £2.50!!

I used to have same trouble with my corded earphones so recently got Philips SHQ6500 Bluetooth ones in Argos for about £15 which I find good! 😀
