fully waterproof sony walkman sports mp3 player at CES 2013



designed to be conveniently and comfortably worn to the gym, the trail, the treadmill, or even into the pool, sony has introduced the ‘NWZ-W27’ walkman sports mp3 player, a water-proof, all-in-one digital music player with 4GB of internal memory. showcased at the 2013 CES in las vegas, the compact device delivers up to eight hours of audio playback on a full battery, and also offers a convenient ‘quick-charge’ function that can provide music for up to an hour by plugging it in for three minutes when fully depleted.


the new walkman withstands not just water but the sweat from intense workouts, making it perfect for everyone from the health conscious to performance sports athletes. ‘for many people, music is a vital component to enable a vigorous workout,’ says andrew sivori, vice president of the personal audio division at sony electronics. ‘now, everyone from casual fitness enthusiasts to hard-core triathletes can enjoy their favorite music while they train or compete – whether on land or in the water’.
