Speedo Aquabeat Waterproof MP3 Player

Speedo Aquabeat Waterproof MP3 Player—The perfect accessory for all of those Olympic swimmer wannabes.

With Phelps inspiring gals and guys around the country to get in the pool and swim endless numbers of laps (maybe to win gold, maybe to get a bod that looks like Phelps’), there are lots of people out there who may be looking for that extra little push of motivation to train as hard as an Olympian. If that’s the case, then investing in something like the Speedo Aquabeat Waterproof MP3 player to help you through all of those grueling laps.

Not only does this great little MP3 player work submersed up to 3 meters underwater, but it also has 9 hours of playback time, holds 1 GB worth of music, floats, has ergonomically designed buttons and a USB port for uploading music and charging. Plus, it comes in three colors (black, green and pink), so you can be styling even in the pool. It also attaches to your goggle, so you won’t be fussing around with finding a place to attach the thing (there just isn’t a lot of material available when you’re in the pool).

When it comes to finding a waterproof MP3 player, you’re probably looking for something with earbuds that won’t fall out in the water (and are of course also waterproof) along with a player that can be submerged to reasonable depths and can hopefully clip on somewhere if you are using it in the pool (where im guessing there isn’t much material to clip anything on to). The thing this little waterproof MP3 player has going for it that the others do not, is that it also floats (so you won’t lose the thing if it falls off in the water), and is also super light weight. Plus, since this nifty little music player was made by the people who make Olympic swimmers go faster (with those full body suits), so if you are looking for music accompaniment while you swim, this is probably your best bet.
