Sony's waterproof-wearable Walkman NWZ-W274S is more than just alliterative, you can swim with it too

Sony has announced the Walkman NWZ-W274S, its latest waterproof-wearable MP3 player come headset that you can wear and listen to while you're swimming.

It comes with 8GB of storage - enough for up to 2,000 songs, says Sony. And it has improved earbuds that are specially made for while you're gliding through the water. The waterproofing has been increased in order to prevent any liquid from penetrating the headphone elements.

As it's an all-in-one device, there are no wires so is well-suited to other sporty pursuits and the gym too. The waterproofing is rated for up to two metres.

The Sony Walkman NWZ-W274S will be available this month, October, and will come in the one colour - black. It will cost £79 and is available for pre-order on Sony's own UK website.
