Other Accessories Useful for FitnessMinded iPhone Users
To help get the most from your iPhone as a fitness tool, consider investing in a case that can be worn around your upper arm to make the iPhone accessible, yet unobtrusive. Many companies offer custom-designed iPhone armbands.
For example, there's the Uniea U-Motion neoprene armband for the iPhone 4/4S ($24.95, http://www.uniea.com/iPhone-case/iPhone-4-case/U-Motion---Runner-Series-for-iPhone-4_23.aspx), which is soft, adjustable, lightweight, and comfortable to wear, yet keeps your iPhone secure and easily accessible as you work out, run, jog, or use workout equipment (such as a treadmill, elliptical machine, or stair stepper).
To keep you unencumbered by wires as you work out and listen to music generated by your iPhone, consider using wireless Bluetooth stereo ear buds such as the JayBird Freedom Bluetooth Headphones ($99.00, http://www.jaybirdgear.com).
With the right combination of apps and accessories, your iPhone will become an indispensible health and fitness tool. And because it's portable, you can always stick to your fitness regime whether you're working out at home, while traveling, in a park, or at any gym.
