You don't need to leave your summer soundtrack on the shore with this SwiMP3 1G Waterproof MP3 player from Finis.

This technologically advanced system allows surfers and beach bunnies to listen to their favorite tunes while underwater. There are many waterproof MP3 players on the market, but this Finis model is one of the only ones to rely on your bones, rather than the air or water, to conduct the sound. This makes the unit sound much clearer and crisper when submerged than other players.

When you're in the water, the last thing you want to worry about is carrying an MP3 player. Finis has designed its unit to clip onto your goggles or snorkeling mask. That's all well and good if you wear goggles or a snorkel, but a bit of a shame for regular beachgoers. Personally I'd have preferred the unit to attach to my bikini or wetsuit, especially once I'm back on dry land.

This MP3 player has 1 GB of memory and can hold MP3 and WMA format tunes. In layman's terms you should be able to load up around 240 songs. The multifunctional controls can be difficult to get a handle on at first, and its operation isn't quite as logical as an iPod or comparable unit. You can only create three playlist folders, and these lists must be played from start to finish. The shuffle function is almost taken for granted these days, so it's disappointing to see a more rigid design here.

Finis claim its MP3 player will hold its charge for up to eight hours, but most customers complain it only plays for around three or four. That's bad news for folks who like to spend all day at the beach, or at least those without a handy laptop for charging.

This waterproof MP3 player isn't the most user friendly or intuitive unit on the market, but it offers much better sound than other comparable players. That might be worth the headaches for many beach-loving music fans.
