Camille Lacourt, 3 x Gold Medallist and European Swimming Champion, has been enjoying the benefits of the new W series - “using the new Sony WALKMAN will definitely give people doing exercise more energy and they will find they can go on for longer”.
Waterproof so you can sweat and swim with no damage
Perfect for today's active lifestyles, the W273 is the first ever Walkman from Sony that resists water down to a depth of 2m (*1). Enjoy great sound quality that only Walkman delivers while you're swimming, in the gym, or working up a serious sweat on the track. When your session is complete, keep on listening during your post-exercise shower, or simply give your Walkman W273 a rinse in running water to keep things clean and fresh.
Get flexible without the hassle of cables
With no wires to worry about, the new Sony Walkman won't slow you down with dangling cables while you're in the pool or moving to the music. You don't even need to attach the all-in-one player to clothing or goggles. The stylish, ergonomic design features securely-fitting earphones with a selection of ear bud sizes to choose from, for maximum comfort and confidence during perspiration-drenched workouts. They won't fall out no matter how energetic you are!
3 minute quick charge gives you 1 hour listening from flat
The W273 has stamina too, with a quick 3-minute charge providing playback for 60 minutes, a fully-charged battery gives up to 8 hours (*2) of pure uninterrupted listening. Simple USB connection for charging and loading your music means you're never stuck searching for extra wires and separate attachments.
Simply drag and drop your tunes from any PC or Mac
The 4GB memory gives plenty of space to load your favourite tunes, and PC and Mac compatible drag and drop from any music library, including iTunes (*3), provides hassle-free transfer of all your favourite tracks and workout playlists. ZAPPIN? song search technology lets you browse quickly through all your music without interrupting your workout, allowing you to preview a bit of each track without fiddly searches through menus or playlists.
