For aspiring Michael Phelps’ who like to do their laps to music, the Finis SwiMP3 is a perfect answer. The waterproof player uses bone-conduction technology so the sound vibrations are transferred from the cheekbone to the inner ear. Attach to any snorkeling mask or goggles and get 10 hours of tunes before needing a recharge. The integrated panel has on/off, volume, next/previous track, pause, and shuffle control and the 256MB of storage allows about 60 titles. The SwiMP3 has a MSRP of $149.99.
