    Fitness Tech keeps improving this product, but they fail miserably on one point. The awesome G2 had screw in earphones and the subsequent products do not,  which means that if you catch the wire(which is now entirely tooooo long at 20") while swimming it will unplug, leaving you susceptible to water seeping in and ruining your device. I am stuck with a G4 that I will never use again and I will not buy this version either. Maybe their next model, the G6 will address this issue.

    Not Great at all. I was not impressed. The idea is SUPER great but this product didn't seem to work for me. The ear buds would slip out while i swam and when they stayed in, i couldn't even hear my music.

    The MP3 player load and playback worked. The volume was low for lap swimming. The weak link was the head phones. Length of cord was good. However, the Tree outlets needed for lap swimming never really sealed well enough for more than two or three laps. One or the other would go out constantly due to water infiltration. The earphone cap tore in two. However, even after that the surprise that it sealed much better than the undamaged earbud tip. I am returning for a refund. Customer service had no concrete suggestions. FYI- I stumbled on the X-1 Interval Swim Solution for the Ipod 4 shuffle worked dead one out of the box.

    I could not get it to play the songs I downloaded. All I can get is one station on the radio. The buttons to switch from FM tuner to Player do not changes as stated on the directions. I cold never get a purple lift or a blinking red light.  Will play with it one more day before I return it.

    I have never been able to get the MP3 music to load properly. I know I down loaded it properly. I just cant get it to switch from the FM radio setting to the MP3 setting. VERY FRUSTRATING! I was really hoping this would work well. NOPE!

    Since I've purchased the product, I have yet to have it function properly! I purchased it so I can play soothing music while I workout in the pool. I cannot: load the music on correctly (I've tried checking it but have not met with success); I've tried even to use the FM tuner, (which is not why I purchased it) but have only encountered loud static. I might be doing something wrong, in the setup, which means the directions are not user-friendly. I'm very disappointed.

    I swim regularly and used for years the UwaterG4 which was lost so I purchased this G5 and it is even better because they added FM radio and I think the earphones have better bass.  I use the Triple-Action ear-tips that come with the G5 because they don’t fall out. This is a great & affordable gadget which I recommend if you do swim laps.

    I really like my G5.  I regularly swim, and the headphones (I use the multi-level buds that come with it specific for lap swimming) stay in.  I regularly swim over an hour, and have not had any problems with it at all.  It's a great little product!

    I dearly loved this mp3 player, in fact in one month the clip broke and i just couldnt send it back because i needed it for my water workout every morning.  Its been 4 months or five and the earphones will not pick up unless you jiggle the earphones. i dont know how to get new earphones for this mp3.  I have enjoyed it but was disappointed the earphones have stopped working properly.  its been great till now even with the broken clip.  I sure miss it .
