Runners and other athletes have long enjoyed music to help them accomplish their work out goals. Why should swimmers be any different?
The SwiMP3 is now available for use in a pool.
It is a waterproof MP3 player.
The technology is pretty interesting, too. It directly transfers sound vibrations through the cheekbones and into your inner ear. Users say the sound is very clear and not muffled at all because it transfers the sound directly through your cheekbone and into your inner ear.
The SwimP3 has a slim design that attaches to most any swim goggle or even a snorkeling mask.
Here's the best part:
It has a 60 song capacity with a built in rechargeable battery for up to 4 hours of continuous playback.
You can easily drag and drop any MP3 or WMA files directly on to the device.
There is a volume control, next or previous track control and an on and off button if you want to turn it off underwater.
The cost is about $150.
