DO NOT WASH THIS ARMBAND!
Please read before you damage or destroy your armband.
As you may have seen here and in the box your armband came in, Apple doe Please read before you damage or destroy your armband.
As you may have seen here and in the box your armband came in, Apple does not provide info about the fabric content or care instructions for this armband. I have important info for you.
My wife and I called Apple CS today to ask about care instructions for the armband and were told that the armband should NEVER be machine washed or immersed in water.
Apple CS states that the armband may be SPOT CLEANED with a mild cleaner such as WOOLITE or a mild soap and water only.
It should be AIR DRIED, never put into a clothes dryer.
I hope this helps prolong the life of your armband and also helps the velcro work efficiently.
Thanks and happy trails to you and your Nano!!! …

The armband looks good sure enough and I love my nano....but it (the armband) sucks in the functionality department. During workou The armband looks good sure enough and I love my nano....but it (the armband) sucks in the functionality department. During workouts, the velcro comes undone constantly and that's aggravating. Here's a clue for you. Think less velcro.....and more one size fits all elastic armband that you slide up your arm and stays in place for people of all arm sizes. Duh!
And PS......give us an option for BLACK. The lighter colors get filthy when you sweat. Again...Duh! …

Workable, But Not Ideal
Here are some negatives you really know about prior to purchasing this system:
1) It is not compatible with the Nike+ running sys Here are some negatives you really know about prior to purchasing this system:
1) It is not compatible with the Nike+ running system. I had to cut a slot in mine to make room for the Nike+'s rf receiver.
2) The ideal place to put the strap for running is the upper biceps. If your flexed biceps is more than about 15-1/2 inches it will not fit.
3) In my case, placing the device on my upper arm resulted in totally unacceptable scraping against my latissimus area that I thought was only annoying, but which actual broke the skin after a long run.
4) You can not see the display on the iPod when it is in this strap.
1) It does hold the Nano securely.
2) Works okay on the lower arm, but is annoying there for running. The motion of running pulls the wires too much and occasionally yanks the ear piece out.
For mesomorphic long distance runners this is clearly not the way to go. Can be used with Nike+ only by cutting a slot in the sleeve, which is not acceptable. For casual and/or slender joggers who don't use Nike+ this could be a good solution.
Apple needs to develop a Nano strap that goes where a wrist watch would go and holds the Nano at an angle such that the display is in the normal reading position when you hold it up. Such a configuration would also require some kind of cable tied down that would secure the ear piece wires to your upper arm or shoulders to avoid excessive wire-motion.

Could be better
I agree with alot of other comments. The velcro after a few months becomes useless, which is a huge problem if you go for runs or I agree with alot of other comments. The velcro after a few months becomes useless, which is a huge problem if you go for runs or workout at all. They should have also made this product in black. It was a good idea and has alot of potential but they need to figure out the velcro situation. …

Good and Long
I've had this band for almost 3 years now. This month it finally started falling apart on me. All of the rubbery coating on the I've had this band for almost 3 years now. This month it finally started falling apart on me. All of the rubbery coating on the outside of the band is crumbling off and it is losing its elasticity. Almost 3 years though. It's hard to complain. $30 thought for a new one? Kind of tough to swallow. …

I run two miles every morning, its been about six months and it has stood up to the sweat and its nice because unlike other armbands the screen cannot get foggy. the only problems i have had include the velcro strap scratching the inside of my arm and that its hard to view the screen and adjust the volume. but overall the armband is simple, practical, stays on my arm, and keeps my Nano safe from sweat. Nice Job Apple! …
