Swimming is a) healthy, b) relaxing and c) boring. What you need to brighten things up is a bit of Girls Aloud, followed by a stretch of the White Stripes, finished with a MadonnaImmaculateCollection crescendo. No?
Waterproof MP3 players can be pricey and waterproof cases for your non-waterproof MP3 player nerve wracking, so it’s with some relief that we greet the Speedo Aquabeat MP3 player. Packing 1GB of memory and sporting (sorry) large buttons for easy music management, you can get it in pink, lime green or black, to match your cossie.
It comes with different sized earbuds, although unlike the SwiMP3, it doesn’t seem to conduct the music through tissue. However, at 80 quid for 1GB it’s a bit of a steal, so we’ll be reserving our judgement. It’ll be interesting to see how this works, logistically, (Gah! Drowning due to tangled wires!) but worry not, as we’ll have a review for you shortly.
