I just received my G4 this morning, and will begin using it in about 1/2 hour after it calibrates! I am pretty excited - I really like the design and especially the thinness of the receiver. I am NOT going to keep it on my belt and would love to know if anyone out there has found a low profile case that will fit the G4. I keep it in my pocket and use the vibration settings for alarm. I am wondering if the older iPod Nano cases will fit - and will check that out later this weekend. If I come up with something I will share it here, and if anyone has already found one, please let us know!
Thank you in advance.
Silicone cases don't slide in and out of pockets well at all.
That's exactly why I like them. They don't slide anywhere: they're "grippy" as well as protective from impact.
Mens pants are much looser, and pockets are larger, so they don't have the same problems that women do.
Hey tudiabetes folks,
OK, I have been reading the case comments on the G4 over the past few weeks. I was never a fan of the 7 cases either, and had some prototypes made but obviously that one is being phased out so I am going to start working on a G4 case, I get my G4 in a week or two but in the meantime I wanted to know if any of you would like to give me inputs on what you want out of a case for the G4 - what I am thinking is get everyone's input, make some prototypes, send you some to try out, then go into production with them.
Please email me if you want to participate, I would like to get at least 5 people if I can, you are free to keep the prototypes to use as well!. Email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Chris..snug fitting, clear or open front for both the screen and buttons, thin enough to not add bulk, and still fit comfortably in a pocket. NOT black!! A place to attach a carabiner to clip on belt loops so it's secure in the pocket, or can be clipped elsewhere. Hope you can come up with something!
A DEX rep told me yesterday that they are going to outsource the cases so they can "focus on the main product." Clearly they did not consider their consumer when they redesigned their current case for the G4. I also accused them of not doing comprehensive cgm consumer research. Their focus was on accuracy (good) and colors (not good). Per the rep. But there is also the usability factor that is also important. In 2012, product companies still can't attend to more than one or two parts of their products at a time when they seek to improve them. Pitiful.
I just found something that's pretty good, for me at least. And it was on the clearance rack at BB, so I got 2 !
It is a 'Armband for Sony Walkman', made by RIOT Outfitters. I cut off the armband part, and used a marker to color the outer trim.
There is clear plastic covering the front, so it's a little harder to press the buttons, but not too bad. The back part is a stretchy neoprene, so it's a snug fit, and covers most of the back side.
I've also heard that cases for Ipod Nano 7th Gen might also fit, since the dimensions are very close.
That is the one I bought and posted about, but paid full price of 24.99. How much did you get them for, not sure if I want to try to get another one at this time of year. If they are even on sale at all of the stores? They are still regular price online.
MaryMary - I missed your earlier post, but funny that I found the same one !.
They were only $3 each, and couldn't believe it fit so well.
I'm still trying to find a way to add a clip to it, but the neoprene back is not quite strong enough for the one I tried.
Wow, what a steal! I did go to see if they had any at our Best Buy, and they didn't have any left at any price.
