If you’re the type of person who chooses sports over fiber bars, this is the kind of gadget that’s really worth your attention.

The Sony NWZ-W273 W Series Walkman Sports is a wire-free MP3 player that offers up to 4 GB of storage space and approximately eight hours of continuous playback on a full battery.

Especially developed for those who like swimming, the device also comes with a quick charging option that provides up to one hour of playback with only three minutes of charging.

The Sports MP3 Player can be used at a depth of up to 2 meters while swimming, with Sony recommending owners to avoid using it in the sea.

It will go on sale in March this year in several color options, with a price tag of $99.99 (€76).
