Ready for action? Soundtrack your next workout with the wearable, waterproof new Walkman® NWZ-W273 MP3 player from Sony.

Great for today’s active lifestyles, it’s 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.

With no wires to worry about, 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 earbud sizes to choose from, for maximum comfort and confidence during perspiration-drenched workouts.

When you’re done, keep on listening during that post-exercise shower – or simply give Walkman® W273 a rinse in running water to keep things clean and fresh.

4GB memory gives plenty of space to load up with your favourite sounds. Compatibility with iTunes (*2) simplifies hassle-free transfer of all your favourite tracks and workout playlists.

New Walkman® W273 is big on stamina, too. A quick 3-minute charge – just long enough to slip into your gym kit – provides power for 60 minutes of listening time. A fully-charged battery gives up to 8 hours (*3) of uninterrupted listening, plenty for the longest workout.

The wearable, waterproof Walkman® W273 MP3 player from Sony is available across Europe from February 2013.
