SwiMP3 Surf Waterproof MP3 Player

swimp3.jpgSwiMP3 Surf Waterproof MP3 Player–A surfer’s or swimmer’s best friend for long workouts in the water.

We all watched (and perhaps fell in love with) the U.S. Swim team this summer as they ripped up the lanes of pool and Michael Phelps went to break an Olympic record winning 8 for 8 gold medals. Perhaps watching these physical feats inspired you to get in the pool yourself for some heavy duty workouts. But, since most of us aren’t freaks of nature able to swim the length of a pool faster than you can say “Phelps,” you may need some jams in that pool to help you through that workout. Or, perhaps you are a surfer that would like to have your favorite tunes create your own personal soundtrack as your ride the waves.

The SwiMP3 is a waterproof MP3 player dubbed the “surfer’s best friend.” The waterproof case and ear buds allow you to submerge the music player and allows you to load 60 songs, up to 10 hours of music at a time. The waterproof ear buds also keep water from entering your ear canal while swimming and secure into your ear so they won’t fall out as your that kick turn off the wall.

If you are looking for a great way to listen to your music as you swim, surf or kayack (or do anything wet for that matter) this is a great option for you. Although this MP3 player was originally designed for surfers, the sound quality is a lot better when submerged, so it is actually better suited for lap swimming. For those looking for a little extra boost of motivation during their workouts in the water, this could be the perfect solution.
