Sony’s Walkman range gets another fitness-orientated Walkman today in the shape of the Sony Sports Walkman NWZ-W260.
Completely wire-free with the player and storage built into the headphones themselves, they’re totally water resistant, meaning they’re as great for watersports enthusiasts as they are sweaty runners, wh can give them a soapy clean afterward a workout without doing the Walkman any damage.
Drag and drop compatible, you can also get your tunes onboard with iTunes syncing, while the Sony Zappin feature allows you to jump to your “power song” for particularly gruelling parts of your training regime.
Battery life maxes out at 8 hours from a full charge, while a short 3 minute charge is enough to give you 60 minutes of playback.
“The Sports Walkman keeps me going through all of my workouts in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games,” said medal-hopeful Marlon Devonish.
“The sound is amazingly clear and helps get me ‘in the zone’ when I’m training, and I love that it’s both wireless and water-resistant so I never interrupt a training session.”
Out in july, there’s no pricing available yet, nor what storage size options will be available. We’ll keep you posted.
