Excellent for exercise

 

This is small and light weight. I was tired of the iPhone arm band. I love the shuffle component where you can shuffle the iPod or the artist. Great sound quality!

So little but so great. You may have different colors for different style of music.

Decent but overpriced

 

It's a pretty decent mp3 player but for what it does, it's overpriced in my opinion. I love how long the battery is -- you can use it forever without having to charge. I don't love the earphones though. They don't have all that great sound quality and...

Easy to use, small, strong clip

Overpriced, bad earphones, small memory

Great inexpensive iPod, perfect for working out.

 

This was a retirement gift for a friend who wants to improve her health and fitness. We thought this would help inspire her to exercise more.

Great product for general use.

 

I have had other ipods, including larger ones and wanted this one for when I was running or walking and had limited pockets. This one attaches to my clothing for ease of use.

I like that you can attach it to you. It's great for running or walking

It may not hold all of your songs
