When the iPhone 6 Plus came out I decided to buy several running belts to try out for my own use as a runner, and after realizing how much I enjoyed using each unique belt I decided to start reviewing them.
Running belts have been a trend for a while now because of how well they solve the issue of carrying a large phone while running. They're quite comfortable, and not overly distracting while running. They're worn over your shorts or shirt which makes them get far less sweaty than an arm band, and they hold other things like keys or food. They're useful for more than just running, more comfortable than velcro arm bands, and are now made in dozens of models.
This post is a reference point to those reviews to make it easy to find information about each of the belts that I've reviewed. You can visit each of the reviews for details and images of each belt, or tap the links to visit the Amazon page or manufacturer's website for more information.

Running with my phone in a belt ends up being a far better experience than running with an arm band. It's more comfortable and less intrusive, doesn't get as sweaty, and lets me carry some extra goodies for longer runs.
For runners looking to stay connected with their phone in a belt, running with the Apple Watch has been a great experience for me. It allows me to keep my phone tucked in its zipper pocket while tracking my workout and changing music tracks from my watch.
