So you love swimming. And your music. And you would love to listen to some high tempo music while swimming? Well, you are in luck. The Duo™ from FINIS is an “earbud-less mp3 player” specifically designed for swimmers.
To use the Duo, you need to clip it on to your swimming goggles with the Duo resting on your cheekbone. Music is then conducted to your inner ears through the cheekbones (yes it works!). While the concept may seem odd (even impractical) at first glance, no earbuds on your mp3 player is actually a good thing for swimmers. That’s because now you don’t have to worry about loose fitting earbuds that can come off anytime during the swim.
The Duo has 4GB of flash memory and a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery life of up to 7 hours. It supports unprotected MP3 and WMA files and offers a simple 4-button navigation system to switch between songs.
