    Hi folks. How do people feel about sweat and this model? I want to use it in the gym for the interval apps, but concerned about sweat damaging..I mean, I'm not like doing Mojave-desert perspiration here or anything, just normal. I'd probably keep it tucked in my pocket or waistband

    I'd suggest you get a decent case to help protect it. A leather pouch might do the trick and it's inexpensive. You would have to slide the iPod in upside down for access to the headphone jack, but that isn't an issue. I have one of these cases for 6 months and it's holding up fine so far.

    iPod Shuffle is perfect for exercise. Inexpensive basically disposable.

    Get an armband then you don't have to worry about sweat or dropping it.

    For my 5s I have the Armpocket armband. It's a fantastic armband and I always use it in the gym. It's well worth the money and is well made.

    I like using an armband as it puts the iPhone within easy reach and it's securely on my arm where it can't fall out of a pocket or off a treadmill.

    It provides excellent protection from sweat. After a sweaty gym session, there is no sweat seepage into the inside of the armband where the iPhone sits.

    This armband will fit your iPod Touch:
