Speedo Releases iriver-made Waterproof Player

speedo Speedo Releases iriver made Waterproof Player

Speedo makes swim suits. iriver makes MP3 players. Together they apparently make waterproof MP3 players. The Speedo Aquabeat is a Speedo branded iriver made MP3 player with 1GB of memory, up to 9 hours of battery life and a weight of only 35 grams.

What’s so special about it is that both player and earphones are waterproof down to 3 meters and on top of that they float. The idea has been done before but frankly this is the best attempt at it so far. With the summer just starting this might be the thing to keep you company underwater, but the price tag of a whopping $145 might make you think twice. Out now from stores that carry Speedo.

This looks cool. I’m a competitive swimmer and a Mp3 player like this would be awesome! However, $145 isn’t that expensive. Swimmers are used to spending loads of money on swim suits which alone can cost up to $500.
