Tunebelt AB88 and AB89

Tunebelt AB89iP6OBDef_1409__92339.1412709542.480.480It has been a while since I reviewed a Tunebelt product. Today, I’m going to do two with what the company sent me with the AB89 and the AB88.

Even thought this is out of order, I’ll start with the AB89. This particular sport armband is for iPhone 6/6S, and it will fit it if you have one of those Otterbox cases, or maybe one from UAG (you know, something similar). That is good news, as some smartphones with a case on them don’t fit.

Then there are all the bonuses like a neoprene armband, a way of storing the earphone cord, and just a good way of keeping the iPhone proofed against the weather. Oh yeah, it is quite good, and I recommend it for anyone who wants some jogging or whatever protection they want.

It can be purchased at the Tunebelt site for $24.95.

Everything else about the AB88 is pretty much the same as the AB89. Seriously, I have the two armbands in front of me, and if it wasn’t for the ID numbers on the back, I wouldn’t have been able to tell them apart. One is for Apple, one is for Samsung, and they both work well for accessing the respective smartphones with their touchscreens.

This is available on the Tunebelt website for about $24.95.

Tunebelt, Take Two: The AB88 for Samsung Galaxy Note II

AB88 front Note 2Some of you might remember the first time we covered the Tunebelt company, makers of some fine armbands. I forgot to review another armband they sent me with the AP88 for the Note 2.

The good news is that not only does it the Galaxy Note and Note 2, but other phones like the Galaxy S3 and S4. It can even accommodate some of the cases and even battery packs of these models. Generally, most accessories don’t account for other accessories, and this actually does. Way to go, Tunebelt!

The AP88 is lightweight with comfortable neoprene construction, and it fits a 9 and 15 inch arm. So if you are muscular, it should work. And if you sweat with it on, it is machine washable.

You can get the AP88 on the Tunebelt site for $24.95.
