Gracie Gear and Magneat Help Keep Your Wires Out of the Way When You Work Out

Manage Your Wires While Working Out

Music is often an essential for a good workout, but managing those wiley wires from iPod to earbuds can be a pain. Many companies are brainstorming some creative solutions to manage your gadgets while you get your heart rate up.

Gracie Gear, one fitness gear innovator, recently sent me a Short Top ($36), a wicking sports bra with a pocket. The pocket is large enough for an iPhone, and it has small hole in the pocket for your iPod cord to feed through and a flap on the shoulder to manage the path of the cord. You can also use the pocket to stow your keys and a sports gel — the pocket can hold both along with your cell phone or iPod. Kind of an ingenious plan for running hands-free, but not the most supportive bra I have ever worn.

The Magneat ($15) is designed to keep your earbud wires from distracting you while you're on the move. It's made of two magnets that stick to either side of your shirt, creating a secure attraction and looking like a mini yo-yo that you wind your excess earbud wire around. The top magnets are decorated with fun images too; as you can see Magneat sent me one with a pixelated skull, but there are many other designs to choose from, including a PacMan. This little gadget is actually kind of neat and certainly kept that darn cord out of my way.

That pocket thing only works if you got no boobs. There's no way I could pull that one off... It'll be SO uncomfortable.

The magnet in the Magneat is super strong and you can put it anywhere and wrap as much or as little of the iPod cord, as needed.

I wonder if the magnet one would interfere with your iPod/iPhone? If not, I think that's a great idea!

The yellow top seems like a great idea, but I'd be nervous about cell phone rays so close to my heart. So I keep mu iPhone on my arm.

The magneat looks cool, do you just clip it anywhere on your clothes that you want too or does it have to be at the point where the cord splits? And is the magnet STRONG? Thanks fit :)
