The UWaterK8 is the ultimate swim companion. Time will go by even faster as you jam to music and swim the hours away. This innovative device holds up to 8GB of media and can be submerged up to 10 ft. in water.
I bought this device to listen to audiobooks while swimming, I have been using an old Ipod with a plastic case for many years until it died. I bought this one because its 8GB capacity and because it said it would play audiobooks. What it did not say was that you can't use it with audiobooks that you buy through audible.com - which happens to be my main source of audiobooks. I was able to copy a couple of books that were mp3 instead of audible files and the sound was ok, but the earphones did not seem to stay on for very long. Extremely disappointing and a waste of money. The device looks ok otherwise, but there are cheaper ones around.
I was not able to connect to iTunes, and neither could most people on google search. I tried to contact Fitness Technology, but they would not reply. I returned it within 60 days, and did not try it in water.
I love the ability to play music and listen to the radio while swimming laps . However I have not been able to figure out how to download books, they seem to be protected from iTunes, and Barnes and noble no longer does the MP3 for the books. I did email your customer service but have not heard back. Could someone please contact me and let me how to download the books, I was really looking forward to this aspect of making the time go by quickly. Also I could use some advice on how to get the music to move from one album to another if all downloaded at the same time. I was getting the loop that someone mentioned . Please post a phone number so the I can call you or reply to my email.
I loaded hours of music onto this device, and when I went to play it- it looped on the same 3 tracks and I could not get it out of that mode. Buttons are small and hard to press. I also found it a bit heavy. Back it goes, I am thankful returning things to swim outlet is easy.
I like to add songs and audio books all the time so my 2GB and 4GB products were insufficient. With 8GB this product is just ideal for me plus the FM reception is good even when I swim indoors. And the audio jack is good with all my earphones as well!
