The iPod touch 7 is a great device for playing your favorite tunes or podcasts while you work out. But holding it in your hand is no fun; you risk dropping it when you work up a sweat. Check out these best iPod Touch 7 workout armbands to keep your iPod touch safe, secure, and conveniently close at hand.
This universal fit armband wraps securely around your iPod touch 7 while keeping the screen fully accessible. You can change up your tunes without missing a beat. It also lets you rotate your iPod touch around so that you can view it vertically or horizontally. Choose from six colors.
This one's a bit different than most on the market; it comes with a clear silicone case for your iPod touch with two slits on the back. Thread the elastic strap through the slits and strap it on your arm when you're ready to work out. The result is a lightweight option that leaves your screen totally exposed for easy access to your controls.
This is a typical workout armband for your device. You place the iPod touch into a pouch which fully encloses your iPod touch. It has a clear screen protector that allows touch screen access. You'll also find a charging port, headphone slots, and a key slot. For quality and convenience, this is one of the best iPod Touch 7 workout bands.
JEMACHE goes the extra mile beyond the typical armband. Put your iPod touch in the pouch and use the touchscreen through the clear screen protector. Holes on the back allow headphone and charging cable access. There is a key pocket on one side, and a cash/card pocket on the back.
This fashion-forward fabric armband has a simple design. While you can't access the touchscreen without removing your iPod touch, the lightweight, machine-washable fabric won't chafe or irritate as you work out. Grip dots keep it from sliding down your arm. Measure your bicep before ordering to choose the correct size, then choose from nearly two dozen colors and patterns.
E Tronic Edge is designed to be soft and comfortable like a compression sleeve. This nylon spandex pouch holds your iPad touch, keys, cash, and cards. There are convenient headphone holes on the back. Measure your bicep to choose the correct size, then have your pick of five colors.

For the most flexibility and functionality, I'd pick the Newppon 180° Rotatable Running Armband (opens in new tab). You can view your iPod touch 7's screen at your preferred angle as you exercise, and the open concept makes it easy to adjust the volume, skip a track, answer a phone call, or whatever else you need to do on the iPod while you work out. The strap is perforated for breathability. There is a hidden key holder and a headphone cord management strap. The elastic that holds the iPod touch 7 in place is flexible, and it can also hold just about any smartphone and even a small tablet like the iPad mini.
For a more comfortable, fashionable option, I'd choose the E Tronic Edge Sports Armband (opens in new tab). It looks like the compression sleeves that many professional athletes wear on their biceps these days, but the soft, breathable fabric armband holds your iPod touch and other valuables. The headphone holes aren't noticeable when not in use. Any of these will serve perfectly as the best iPod Touch 7 workout bands.
