    Problem solved, I will buy a used one on ebay.
    CordMcNally I will re-try the arm band thing in the meantime. Thanks all. You guys/gals know everything.

    Xtrainerz, IconX- These are earbuds that can save music. I just googled "earbuds that save songs." I've never used any of these, so I have no idea how good or bad they are.

    Apple watch or something like that seems like the most practical option, tbh. I just use my phone and earbuds when I workout, but I don't jog/run for miles at a time.

    Some Garmin watches will sync an iTunes music library.

    I can't really explain it. It feels bulky, annoying. Weighs me down on my 9 minute miles, lol.

    Yes. I’m kind of curious why you don’t just use your mobile phone. I like being able to listen to music or a podcast while also being able to call or text in an emergency.

    EBAY
    Apple tech is highly collectible, even if it's not that old.

    Your old one might be worth a lot more than you think.

    I stand corrected - these things are holding their value better than I expected, for a device that was discontinued five years ago. Still, $20-30 for a used shuffle on eBay isn’t bad!

    Why not a used iPod? An Apple Watch or iPhone are probably your only current options for using iTunes music. You could probably buy ten used iPods for $20 and keep using them until apple phases out support.
