It’s specifically designed for swimmers and water sports enthusiasts, a light/compact cylinder-shaped player that attaches tightly to your person. The controls are accessible on the side, with earphone connection kept watertight via a special screw-in jack.
Both the earphone and the player were tested to comply with IPx7 international water resistant standard, there’s eight hours of playback between charges and the tracks (MP3 or WMA) can be downloaded to the 1GB memory via USB. You can pick one up for £69.99.
