A perfect shave with the new Braun WaterFlex

A while ago I was sent the new Braun WaterFlex Electric Shaver and of course my hubby was over the moon as he could finally get to test something!!
Suitable for wet and dry use, the Braun WaterFlex electric shaver is 100% waterproof and can also be rinsed under running water for easy cleaning. Its unique 33° pivoting head adapts to every contour of your face for a super close, smooth shave. The unique shape of the shaver's OptiBlade foil allows you to cut deeper and capture more hair. There's also a long hair trimmer for shaping and styling sideburns, moustaches and beards. Cordless for ease of use, the Braun WaterFlex gives you 45 minutes of shaving time per 1 hour charge.

Product key features:

Wet & Dry and fully washable (IPX7 tested)
The Braun WaterFlex is specifically designed for usage in the shower and with foam. Thanks to its fully sealed body (IPX7 tested, up to 1 m immersion), it is 100% waterproof and can also be rinsed under running water for easy cleaning.
Contour-adaptive swivel head for adaptation
The 33° pivoting shaver head adapts to every contour of your face, such as around the jawline and under the chin. It has been specifically designed to catch every hair on every contour and give you an excellent shave, even in problem areas.
OptiBlade for closeness that lasts longer.
The OptiBlade is an advanced foil from Braun. Its shape allows to capture more hair and cut them deeper than ever before. Braun has over 50 years of foil evolution experience culminating in our OptiBlade.
3-stage cutting system for best cutting, the three special cutting elements shave long hair as easily as short hair.

Additional features:

Precision long hair trimmer for precise styling
WaterFlex precision long hair trimmer features an excellent cutting performance. To trim your sideburns, moustache or beard with this perfect and precise tool, simply slide the long hair trimmer upwards.
2-stage LED display for battery status
WaterFlex features a LED display indicating battery status.
Powerful rechargeable Li-Ion battery with no memory effect
WaterFlex features a powerful rechargeable Li-Ion battery. WaterFlex shavers use a powerful 3,6 V Li-Ion Battery with no memory effect.
Full charge in only one hour. 45 minutes for cordless shaving
One hour charging time gives you up to 45 minutes of cordless shaving. A quick five minute charge is sufficient for one cordless shave. The SmartPlug has an automatic worldwide voltage adjustment (100V-240 V). For your best convenience - at home or travelling.

So, after all this, what was the experience like?

A pleasant surprise for my hubby. Mainly because of his past experience with using shavers in the wet. The swivel head is good, the anti-slip grip is definitely needed, and the feel on the skin is just what you want.
The Optiblades are designed to give you a combination of closeness and gentleness, and they definitely do not disappoint.
A couple of LEDs let you know the battery status, while a ‘no-memory’ battery (Li-Ion) means you can be rest assured that the battery won’t deteriorate like the one on your phone or laptop.

Worth keeping it in mind for a future birthday or Christmas gift for your hubby or father !
