Maplin has launched a waterproof MP3 player with a "robust", anti-rust aluminium body.

With a 4GB memory, the claim is the player can hold up to 1000 songs and has an adjustable arm band.

Complete with waterproof earphones and USB cable, the unit is also underwater tested to IPX8 standard, which means it can stay underwater for long periods.

The MusicTube Waterproof MP3 player costs £39.99 and is available now from Maplin.
