I was rather frustrated that I had to go ANT+ in order to get all of this to work, but I have to admit, my kit all works fantastic. As an added bonus, my Wahoo ANT+ iPhone setup also allows me to use my Garmin GPS running watch simultaneously, so my watch can pick up my cadence and heart rate in parallel to my iPhone without a hitch. Now, why would I wear both? Because I can monitor my cadence and heart rate in real time on my wrist while having Runkeeper track my run and sound off my pace, avg heartrate, etc. I also like having the GPS watch as a backup when the GPS on the iPhone burps every now and then and miscalculates position.
My kit includes:
iPhone4 with Wahoo ANT+ sensor
Garmin Forerunner 610 watch
Garmin ANT+ chest strap sensor
Garmin ANT+ footpod sensor
Newton running shoes (I had to shamelessly plug my favorite shoe company in Boulder, CO!)
To get to the good things about this armband - obviously it is one of the only armbands that I know of which has a cutout slot for ANT+ dongles. Until we see a lot of choices as far as iPhone Bluetooth support, ANT+ is probably our best bet for now.
The other nice thing is that this case is truly water resistant - of the three other armband I have used, this is the only one that works reliably in monsoon like weather conditions. I live in the Pacific Northwest and am an all-weather runner/cyclist - with my other armbands I often had to ziplock bag my iphone to insure that no moisture would leak through an armband. The Wahoo Fitness armband is so cleverly designed, I don't worry about zip locking - the top flap folds over the case portion making sure no water gets in. Now if you dropped it in a puddle or submerged it, you would have issues.
Final thoughts are I would love to see Wahoo create a more hardshell type version of their armband kinda like the bike case with a built-in dongle. But maybe by then we'll all be using bluetooth enabled devices...
The only reason for 4 stars over 5 is this difficulty in getting the phone into the case.
After using this almost daily for 8 months, the flap at the top that protects the phone has started to fray and tear. I still use it when I am at the gym and for outdoor hikes/runs in good weather, but it would no longer protect the phone in wet weather.
- Holds phone tight & secure
- Water resistant: this was somewhat important since now i can run in the rain without worrying that my phone is getting wet.
- You can hold a conversation while the phone is in the armband.
- Hard to take phone out.
- Strap is too short.
- Hard to work the phone while its on your arm. I mention this since my last case was a Belkin that snapped in and out of the armband so I could easily work the phone and put it back while running.
