    Hi guys,

    With technology always growing what do you use to listen to music at the gym? Do you still have an ipod? Mp3? Or do you use your phone?

    I alternate between phone and Sandisk Clip. I use my phone whenever I want to listen to any of my Amazon Prime music. I use the Clip when I just want to listen to the radio. Surprisingly, the Clip has better FM reception than either my phone or ipod Nano.

    I use my phone, but considering getting an mp3 player because I read that the constant yanking out your ear buds can eventually short out the terminal. When I run, some times I do accidentally yank out my ear buds, but usually just out of my ears.

    Depends! If lifting, phone. On a treadmill, none of the above. I use my iPad on a treadmill cuz I'm catching up on movies and tv shows while running.

    I use an Ipod Shuffle while running. It is very small and clips to anything.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI'm not one for a lot of gadgets. Having several pieces of equipment is an excellent way to create mess and clutter. Not my style.

    I use my phone.


    Do you find battery life to drain quickly using your phone?

    pazzy saiddon't even go to the gym with my mp3 player. afraid to break it. only carry my phone just in case there's an emergency.

    I don't even carry a phone. I am afraid that either I'll forget it or someone will steal it.

    you must have a smart phone then. i have one of those phones that nobody would steal because they wouldn't want it anyway.. icon_lol.gif a 5 year old flip phone with a text pad that because is falling apart that still works.

    I used to carry phone similar to yours. This is my first smartphone. It's already bit damaged, dropped it many times. Still, I am worried about losing it or damaging it.
    I heard from some guy that someone stole his smartphone from the gym locker by breaking in.

    there's people that really are way too serious over smart phones. folks getting their inner hulk and risking their freedom to tear off lockers to steal smart phones. at your gym? wtf. folks are nuts. it's just as sickening as hear people getting killed on the subway for jumping on the tracks to pick up their smart phones that they dropped on the platform or people willing to lose their jobs to wait in line for the newest iphone or whatever.

    but yeah, they're way too easy to damage. heard that damage protection covers are expensive too. how long ago did you get your smart phone? hell, as long as it works and isn't too damage, then your phone is still good. you got a cracked screen? i'm going to get a smart phone soon. just scared that i might be addicted to it with all the features and possible uses. icon_sad.gif

    It's the back cover which is damaged. I have a nexus 4 with a glass back cover. It breaks very easily and not easy to replace. I like how you can see the fracture lines originating from a single source point icon_biggrin.gif
    Otherwise, it's a good phone for the price you pay. I have dropped it quite many times, but it still works fine. The damages are only on the surface. Everything is fine inside.

    I don't bring music or my phone into the gym, but in the car, all my music is MP3 on a thumb drive, direct connect to USB port, interesting, I never had an iPod for music since its launch over a decade ago icon_confused.gif
