/// MP3 Players You Can Swim With
About a year and a half ago, I took up swimming. I’m not very good, or fast. When I swim, I look like a rotisserie chicken on a broken spit. But the water was a place where I could get away from electronics, at least for an hour or so. Then I found out about underwater MP3 players. For the past couple weeks, I’ve been testing two of these — the Neptune MP3 Player, made by a swim-equipment company called Finis, and a waterproofed iPod shuffle sold by a small company called Underwater Audio. The $160 Neptune, a three-part gadget that attaches to a pair of swimmer’s goggles, is mostly aimed at competitive swimmers or athletes — people who are really getting at it in the pool and need some motivational music. Interestingly, the Neptune doesn’t use headphones. The sound is conducted through your cheekbones. [ See post to watch video ] The Underwater Audio iPod can be used for both lap swimming and lounging in the pool.
