I am very excited. I was at the pool yesterday and saw this guy swimming laps with headphones on.
He had an armband with his iPod Touch secured and waterproof, and I knew right away I needed to get that setup, so I could bring some music and podcasts to my swim workouts.
As soon as I dried off, I headed over to the local Apple Store to get my gear.
There was one style of these things at the store – the H20 Audio Amphibx Waterproof Armband.
So, I got one for my iPod Touch. I think it’s going to be a little bulky and goofy, but that’s the price I have to pay for water audio.
Yeah, I could get a smaller one and use a Nano or something, but I don’t feel like bothering with another MP3 player.
Anyhow, this flashy armband is pricey – it was $80 at the Apple Store. But wait, there’s more!
The H20 Audio Amphibx Waterproof Armband requires special headphones, and they cost another $60.
I am sure these items or competing brands are available online for a better deal, but I needed to have this contraption in my hands right away.
OK, off to the pool.
