The remote and it's associated unit is an intelligent piece of design. I used it upon my daily bike commute as I prefer to lower the volume or turn off my iPod at certain points in my journey so that I may concentrate on the traffic around me. To do so without a remote would mean stopping at the side of the road, fishing said iPod from my pocket and making the required changes from the Pod's input wheel.
The Belkin is easy to attach to your wrist and and both simple and safe to use but as has been mentioned before in other reviews here, it ceases to work entirely in cold weather. This has made it all but useless during the UK's winter months and as a result, I was forced to buy a second remote made by another manufacturer.
A seriously flawed bit of kit which is sadly now gathering dust in the back of my wardrobe.
