Speedo Aquabeat


The Speedo Aquabeat is a waterproof MP3 player with many fitness features that make it great for swimming and other sports activities.

The Speedo Aquabeat MP3 player is waterproof and plays music under water

It lacks games and extras like apps and Wi-Fi connectivity

The Speedo Aquabeat is waterproof so you can use it when swimming. You can take this MP3 player places other devices cannot go. It works well for water enthusiast and athletes who spend a lot of time in the pool.

Speedo Aquabeat


It's a long time since jog-proof CD players were the gym accessory of choice. Today's Flash-based MP3 players are the ideal exercise companion, whether you're running, weight training or cycling. And with the Aquabeat, Speedo are planning to bring...

Floats like a butterfly, swims like an MP3. For music while you work out, this neat little player is a great way to take your tunes underwater.

Speedo - AquaBeat


Do you get bored in the swimming baths? Of course you do, which is why Speedo - of skimpy trunks fame - has come up with this waterproof MP3 player that easily meets its, err, brief. ...

Not an advanced MP3 player by any means, the AquaBeat's simple operation and waterproof design is welcome in the water though 1GB is exceptionally small for the money. Slightly cumbersome to strap-on to goggles it might be, but the AquaBeat does its...

Listed at around £75 for the 1GB version and £100 for the 2GB LZR swimsuit-styled incarnation, the Aquabeat is not cheap. Do some astute on-line shopping for better prices and the outlay is probably worth it to put the finishing touches on a decent...

Speedo Aquabeat 1GB


Have been researching for ages for something like this - the design is awesome, especially the way the bits go behind your ears, and clip onto the back of your goggles - you dont really know you have got it on. The sound is awesome - and it is very...

Today is only the second day that I have used it - hopefully will get better at putting it in my ears correctly after a few more uses - had trouble getting a good seal, so once water gets in between the ear bud and the canal - the sound becomes quite...
