    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.

    This is my 3 Uwater MP3.  The first one lasted 3 years.  I used it 4-5 times a week for about an hour at a time.  The second one did not last long as I accidently ran over it.    Fitness Technologies has improved the sound quality of the player and the earphones that come with the player.  Downloading music to the Uwater G5 was easy.  Although it has a radio function, I will be using it.  The only thing that I wish is that Swim Outlet would sell the triple action earlplugs.  They however can be purchased through Fitness Technologies.  When this one no longer works I will purchase another one.  The price is just right. Music to swim by is the way to go.

    Works pretty well. Sometimes One channel goes out while swimming , but when both channels work it's great. I had no problems converting MP4 files to MP3 fro ITunes & loading them into the player. Not perfect, but I'd recommend it

    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.

    Too bad I couldn't give it no stars. Got two, first one stopped working in 90 days.& earbuds came apart in about a month . Had the crazy clue the little speakers to the plastic get them to stay together. Ordered a separate pair of earbuds  that cost as much as the mp3 player. they are great. Swim Outlet sent me a replacement for the 90 day failure. I loaded music on, tested with my earbuds & when I went to remove the earbuds from the MP3, the whole thing came apart, jack & all. Returned that one & bought a Diver model.So far it's great.

    This is the first MP3 player that is truly waterproof in both salt water and chorine.  It makes exercising in the water a pleasure.  I have suggested this product to many others, all of whom have also loved it.
