This does not fit the Sansa Clip+
on February 19, 2014
This does not fit the Sansa Clip+. This arm band is 1 1/2" wide. In order to fit the clip(perfectly), it needs to be 1 1/4" or 1 3/16" wide. Sure, the Velcro band is flexible, but in this case, IMO, you are taking a risk of your mp3 not being secure & will twist, if not fall off, especially if you are exercising. Unfortunately, my suggestion is to buy an arm band holder(case). Many options out there from neoprene to canvas. To my knowledge, you will not find the perfect Sansa case like Apple products have. Fortunately, I still have my old Velcro arm band that's 1 3/16" wide from my old Sansa Fuse that is a perfect and more secure fit w/ my new Clip+. Keep in mind that w/ the Clip+, you are merely clipping to the band so this is not "bomb proof" like the old Fuzes were w/ their silicone cover. W/ the Clip+, there is a chance that your mp3 player will fall off the arm band or any place that you CLIP to and there is no way around this - a good reason to invest in a silicone cover to protect your mp3 player when it drops. Sure, the Clip+ can be clipped anywhere, including your waist, but I strongly prefer my mp3 player on my arm where it's up close, so that I can more easily operate & see my mp3 quickly. Note, that with all of the arm mp3 cases I have found, none of them allow you to operate(adjust) or even see your mp3 player without first removing it from the case. Because of this, a simple Velcro band is preferable. I bike ride on a trail and have occasional road crossings where I need to press pause, so a mp3 case will be a pain for me....
Also, I do not expect the clip(the clip it's self) to last that long...It looks like the clip will break before the player does. W/ that in mind, I also bought a canvas type arm holder. Hopefully this little Sansa clip+ will last as long as my Fuze has. My Fuze still works btw...
Note, I have looked all over the internet for a 1 3/16" or a 1 1/4" Velcro armband and it doesn't seem to exist anymore. My old Velcro arm band came as part of a Sansa Fuze accessory bundle.
Indecently, it took quite a while to receive this from the seller. The first one never showed(no tracking...) and when I finally did receive the second one (at a higher price) it ends up not working for my new Sansa...My advice to Sansa Clip+ owners is to not buy this.
