Cons: poor design; mine stopped working after four days of using it at the gym as it was diagnosed by a genius to have been “water damaged” when the dock connector is designed to be upside down when clipped on your left collar…DESIGNED TO ABSORB SWEAT!!!
Summary: I’m stuck with a defective item that Apple refuses to take responsibility for, stating it was my fault it got water in it…so unless Apple had a disclaimer for users not to use this 6th generation nano when running/working out or to not clip it on your left collar as it would it is DESIGNED TO ABSORB SWEAT that later on would be diagnosed as “water damaged” since probably a drop of sweat went through the doc connector, I don’t think I should be left with a $149 piece of crap!

I too was shocked at the EXTREME sensitivity of the Ipod (5th gen Nano in my case) to moisture. I used it 5-6 times then it flipped out (On-Off at random, wouldn’t restore, etc). The Apple store said ‘water damage’ $89 to replace, please. The device had never been close to rain or water other than minor sweat (it was attached on the outside of my arm in a case!).
I’ll be looking for another brand since they said all Ipods use the same mechanism.

Sorry but media players are meant to be ‘used’ not kept in a hermetically sealed case and admired (Ipods do have aesthetics).

I was so excited to have the new ipod nano. I have only had my ipod nano for about a week and it is already acting up. It can’t hold a charge, it goes on at random, even though I have the “shake” off when I workout, it will change songs in the middle or start a song over. The only reason why I got the ipod nano was because I wanted to use the Nike+ to track my workouts. I think that I will be going back to Creative Zen nano player that lasted at least 4 years. If you are looking for a MP3 player o workout with, this is not it.

I had similar problems with my 5th generation iPod Nano.  It wouldn’t hold a charge and kept coming on intermittently even when turned off, sent it back to Apple.  They returned it saying it had “water damage”.  Well, it had never been near any water or other liquid and has not even been exposed to sweat (I am a disabled older woman), so now I’m stuck with an expensive mp3 player that Apple won’t fix. This problem started within months of buying it.

What’s wrong with a little “common sense” ? Love mine for bike ridding and hopefully skiing !
