MP3 players and PMPs are old-hat in this day of smartphone “one device to rule them all” dominance, but Sony have still managed to pique our interest at CES 2013 with the NWZ-W273 W Series Walkman Sports.
Aimed at fitness fanatics, this one-piece unit (meaning all storage of songs and control of playback is handled by the earphones themselves) will hold 4GB worth of tunes and offer eight hours of playback on a full charge.
However, if you’re pressed for time and looking for excuses not to run without some musical accompaniment, a short three minute charge will still give you a whole 60 minutes worth of playback.If you’re a swimmer you’ll be able to take them for a dive or two too, working fine when continuously submerged in 2 metres of water.
Due out in February in black, blue, white, and pink, expect to pay around £70 when these hit stores.
