[IP] MM-swimming and waterproof case



This is definitely a YMMV thing but I don't have to wear my pump in the
water. I have a MM508 and I have never used the waterproof case.  I have
swam for up to 4 hours at a time with no pump and because of the exercising
I have kept my bg's under 150.  Just a thought and definitely a YMMV thing
:)
