Finis a manufacturer of competitive swim equipment, introduces the world's first waterproof bone-conducting MP3 Player.

Unlike other waterproof players that rely on traditional air conduction technologies, the SwiMP3 player uses bone conduction – the direct transfer of sound vibrations from the cheek bone to the inner ear – to provide the swimmer with exceptional sound clarity. The SwiMP3 player is fully waterproof and can be used with all competitive swim strokes. It holds approximately 30 songs for four hours of continuous music.

We reported in 2003 about a student who had the idea for MP3 swimming googles. Finis now brought such a swim gadget on the market for $249.99. More details on Finis corporate site and press-release (pdf).
