Thing that straps around one's arm

Hi everyone. What do you call the black thing strapping around the man's arm and holding the mobile phone?

I can't see the picture, the site seems to be down, but from the description I would call it "A thing that straps onto your arm to hold your mobile".

Can't see the picture either, but wondered if it might be a cell phone leash. Keeps the phone from falling on the floor or in the toilet.

Bob and BonnieL and other members : I'm sorry when you couldn't access the website to look at the picture. It's weird that I could have the access to it. Here's another link:

Steve, you might think that Bob is joking. The truth is that, sometimes, things (often newer things) don't really have a name, at least one that most people readily recognize. All you can do is use a description. Even though I couldn't see the photo on your link I knew exactly what you were talking about. I still don't know what they are called, though. I'd probably go with armband mobile phone holder or something along those lines. It needs a name for sure because that dosen't sound very catchy.

I was joking, but to say "sorry" I found this page, and 'armband' does seem to fit the bill.
