Think you two are missing the point… it’s different than the iJet because it’s water resistant and smaller… and it has the big buttons so you can use it outside with thin gloves on. I think it’s a neat idea, but too pricey ... like most of the ipod add-ons.

I’ve needed this for years—I’ve gone through 4 Apple remotes that have been damaged by sweat.

My only problem: I now run with the Nike+ iPod kit so I’m pretty sure you can’t connect both at the same time.

If your iPod is on you when you’re using this, why does it need to have an 50 foot range?
