Running has become one of the favorite activities of Poles, who train and are eager to challenge themselves in competitions. For jogging, it is worth taking a smartphone with you, which, thanks to its extensive functionality, makes it easier to control your pace, collects accurate statistics and makes your time more enjoyable, especially on longer distances. Here are 5 practical smartphone gadgets you should definitely invest in.

1. Wireless headphones

A wireless earphone placed directly in the outer ear, without any tangled wires, is the perfect solution for runners who like to listen while covering kilometers:

  • music,
  • audiobooks,
  • podcasts,
  • radio.

With wireless headphones, you can also take a phone call without interrupting your run. How is it possible for sound to transfer in real time and with such clarity? It’s all thanks to the use of Bluetooth technology. Wireless headphones are offered by all leading manufacturers (from Xiaomi to Apple). The latest smartphone models don’t have a traditional wired alternative, by the way, as devices are increasingly devoid of the popular 3.5mm mini jack connector.

2. Protective case and tempered glass

Running with your phone in your pocket is uncomfortable and risks damaging your equipment. In a moment we will discuss gadgets that provide comfort in this regard. But let’s go back for a moment to the dangers of dropping your smartphone, especially if you’re running on a hard surface like asphalt or paving stones. You know very well that modern devices have quite sensitive touch screens or cameras, and replacing these parts is very expensive. Therefore, if you lead an active lifestyle, invest in tempered glass and an aesthetically pleasing case that cushions the fall.

3. Shoulder case

We’ve already established that running around with your phone in your hand or pocket is not the best idea, as a fall can end in a very expensive crash. However, it’s a good idea to keep your phone with you – to contact loved ones, listen to music, and collect data while you run. A useful gadget, therefore, is a special shoulder case – attached with Velcro and fully adjustable. The transparent surface makes it easier to control what is displayed on the screen.

4. Chest holder

Another interesting accessory is a holder that can be clipped to the chest to put a smartphone or a sports camera like GoPro in this place. Such “suspenders” are used mainly by extreme sports enthusiasts or cyclists who want to record their route in detail. Also among runners, there is no shortage of people who want to immortalize their exploits or are, for example, active in social media and thus record video content.

5. Sports armbands

A real hit in recent years are sports wristbands – relatively cheap and thus widely used by active smartphone users. Sometimes they are even an addition to the subscription (current promotions and the best operator offers you can compare at https://komorkomat.pl/abonament/). Sports armband is used, among others, to measure steps, calories burned, activity time or heart rate. With the help of Bluetooth, it connects to the application on your smartphone and transmits a lot of relevant data.
