I must have been living under a rock. I didn’t know that you can buy an electronic gadget to wear that will play music in your ears while you swim. You can get one that loads MP3 files, so you can select your own playlist. They’re all over the place. They go by names such as “SwiMP3,” “aqua-pod,” “Surf Player,” and “Liquid Tunes.”
We were also discussing lap counters, which swimmers can use to keep track of how many times they have gone to the end of the pool and back. Here are some of the gadgets for wealthy swimmers. You can buy many different kinds of waterproof gadgets, from a floating in-pool radio to a waterproof GPS unit for those times when you’re lost at sea.
