You know I have been touting the benefits and amazingness of my WaterFi waterproof iPod and headphones ever since I purchased them about a year ago. Now, because I want good karma, I’m offering you a chance to win your very own! What can I say? I’m a giver…when there’s a benefit for me.
Just the Facts…
Waterproof to 210 feet | I swam with it in Lake Winnipesaukee all last summer and it was perfecto
2GB holds hundreds of songs, podcasts, audiobooks | I have yet to download anything but music
Rechargeable battery lasts up to 15 hours | This is one of the best features because I hate having to charge stuff
It basically functions like every other “i” thing in your life and almost exactly like an iPod except that you can use this one in the water. #CaptainObvious
What You Really Want to Know…
You will not die of boredom when doing ridiculously long swim intervals or, if you’re doing pool running either to avoid further injury or just up your running game!
I don’t use it every time I swim but, when I have more than a 500 (or 20 laps) to do at once. It definitely helps to keep me motivated but can slightly mess up my lap counting skills!
I originally purchased it when I had to start pool running due to an injury and it seriously saved my life. I have since recommended it to other pool runners with rave reviews.
What the Reviews Say…
The ONLY negative comments I have read (and experienced) have to do with the headphones. A lot of people have a problem with them staying in their ears for some reason. I don’t necessarily have an issue with it but, they have fallen out on occasion. It’s no biggie for me, I simply stop and pop them back in.
As you can see from the above picture, they are specially designed to stay inside your ears and, the issue comes when the cord drags or if you push with a lot of force off the wall on the turn around. Even though the cord is considerably shorter than a normal iPod cord, there is still some length to it.
The headphones also come with three different sizes so, if you’re having some trouble with one, you can try a different size.
The set up could not be simpler. After trying a few different ways of getting them on and then fumbling around with the buttons, this is the sequence that works best:
- Turn on the music first
- Place the headphones in your ears
- Clip the shuffle onto your goggle strap
You can control the volume or chose to skip over a song directly on the shuffle, just as you would with a regular iPod. The buttons are slightly harder to press since, waterproofing. I usually just leave mine alone and swim to whatever comes on!

Would you maybe wear it in the shower? Pool class? Where else?
