Sony NWZ-W273 Waterproof Walkman Lets You Swim with Your Tunes

by Range

If I didn’t have my music when I was running, I probably would have trouble with boredom and motivation, especially because I usually run by myself. So I can imagine the same holds true for any sort of distance swimming. Swimmers rejoice and check out Sony’s new sports MP3 player, that’s completely waterproof.

The Sony NWZ-W273 Walkman is an integrated headphone/MP3 player with 4GB of internal memory. Even if you swim more than a few laps, that should be plenty to load up your favorite tunes for a lengthy workout. Its IPX8 rating means it’s waterproof to up to 2-meters (~6.56 feet) in depth. The device delivers up to 8 hours of music playback, and has a quick-charge option which will juice it up in 3 minutes for an extra hour of playback.

I can already see hardcore triathletes using this in the water, because they will be easily able to use this on their bikes, and then in the water directly. Assuming, that is, that their particular triathlon allows the use of music players.

The NWZ-W273 Walkman is available in black, white, pink or blue. It’s coming soon to the Sony Store, and sells for $99.99(USD).
