Is there a workaround for that, besides using the screen (not always an easy option) or headphones with a built in volume controller (again, not my favorite thing to use)?
The physical buttons are on the back of the phone. Cases are designed for these to be accessible. In the case of a workout band, as long as the band is setup so the back of the phone is facing out, the buttons would be accessible. Since I don't work out, I have not looked in to these type of cases!
