It’s getting to that time when the good intentions of the new year resolutions are becoming more of a distant memory than a daily driver. Many people start the year with the resolve to get in shape, lose weight and exercise more, but by the time April rolls around 80% of those gym memberships will be unused. To try and help keep that motivation going, we’re starting a small series of reviews looking at fitness and health gadgets, diving in (*groan*) with the Finis SwiMP3 X18 2GB, an mp3 player which is waterproof and requires no earphones, allowing you to enjoy your podcasts, audiobooks or favourite tunes while at the pool.
- Bone Conduction Audio
- 2gb storage (approx 500 songs, or 30 hours of audio)
- MP3 and WMA compatible
- 8 hour lithium rechargable battery
The SwiMP3 comes in a pretty simple box, not too many bells or whistles or over-reaching design, just straight to the point and tells you what you need to know.
Once inside, the simplicity continues with a book-style opening to the interior box, and then just the player in foam recesses, with an instruction manual under the foam.
