Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) August 08, 2013
Digifit, the original heart-rate monitoring app for smartphones, introduces an innovative and more comfortable solution for exercising with an iPhone with the launch of the Saddle forearm mount today. Unlike other smartphone armbands on the market, the Digifit Saddle comfortably contours to a user’s lower forearm for the most convenient position to view and access an iPhone while running, walking, hiking or during any other activity.
"Before now, mobile users were limited to working out with armbands that attach to the bicep, which is an awkward position for accessing information or data while exercising, or left to carry the phone in hand or in a pocket," says Dean Hovey, CEO and president of Digifit. "The Saddle’s unique and convenient forearm positioning provides a more comfortable way to workout with your iPhone and let’s you view workout stats, heart-rate charts, duration, maps, music and more with a simple glance. This also means you won’t have to break stride, compromise form or pause during a workout to check timely exercise stats, record laps, or interact with other apps and functions."
The Digifit Saddle forearm mount offers a convenient and comfortable solution to working out with an iPhone. Adjustable velcro straps ensure a perfect fit and a neoprene lining featured on the inner straps holds the armband securely in place to eliminate jostling while moving. With open ports on the top and bottom of the rubber mount, users can plug in headphones, ANT+ Transceivers for connecting ANT+ devices and other accessories, volume controls and more. The unique malleable rubber material stretches to fit most iPhone cases and bumpers so users don’t have to fumble with removing the protective gear and can quickly pop their device into the Saddle when preparing for a workout.
The Saddle forearm mount is currently available for the iPhone 4, 4S and 5 and is priced at $29.95. A limited production run has been completed and pre-sale orders are being accepted at http://www.digifit.com/saddle
Free shipping is available for all pre-sale orders.
Press samples are available upon request by emailing press(at)digifit(dot)com.
