I am looking to purchase the Elise 2 I think, noted through the video reviews it features twice the power and is waterproof along with a couple other features. I have noted through my research that people have said the elise and iris are pretty similar but the iris has the texture that I think some people love about it, not too sure on that piece. Hope this at least some what helps. I have a liv right now and it was good for a little while but if you looks it's pretty petite in comparison to the rest. So I'm super excited to get the Elise 2!!!
