Smartphone armband with LEDs
Our take on the Scosche LitFit by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Safety and convenience
I'm a runner. That means dark mornings on the road, getting in the miles to prep for my next race. While I run defensively, I can't always count on motorists paying attention while they reach for their morning joe or check their text messages. Scosche delivers an extra level of safety to runners like me with the LitFit™ smartphone armband.
LitFit uses bright, built-in LED safety lights with three different flashing patterns to catch the attention of drivers. The flexible neoprene material is accented with reflective details, and is sweat- and weather-resistant. LitFit holds all the latest phone models, with a clear cover and full touch-screen operation. An integrated key slot ensures you'll get back in your house when the workout is done.

What's in the Box:

After shopping at the local box stores I saw this sports band in my email from Crutchfield and since they've been solid in the past I went with it. Good fit, easy touch screen access and the light added a needed safety factor during morning and evening rides. Solid piece.

Why did you buy this?
I walk daily and quite often it's dark when I start or when l finish. I think this will make me more visible and get my cell phone out of my pocket. [ Richard Oct 29, 2017 ]

Unfortunately that information is not provided from the manufacturer--and since this is a brand new product to our inventory, I'm afraid our Product Researchers haven't had a chance to measure the specs/test the features yet.
