You typical iPod or other standard MP3 player isn’t up to the task of swimming or sports where shocks and bumps are apt to happen. You can wear a plain MP3 while you exercise, but if you get it wet the player is pretty much done.
Finis has announced its latest rugged and waterproof MP3 player called the XtreaMP3.1G. The device has 1GB of storage capable of holding up to 240 songs. The player is design for sports where shocks are common, like snowboarding, skateboarding, and cycling.
The device is completely waterproof and sweat proof and can be worn while swimming in an included neoprene armband. The device sells for $149.99 and is available now. It also ships with secure fitting earbuds that are waterproof as well.
