The brand new waterproof MP3 player from Finis
- even better SOUND and great new features!
return to swim shop index
Finis' previous generation waterproof MP3 player (the SwiMP3.2G) was a firm favourite of ours, offering the best sound quality and reliability in the market. You can still buy the 3.2G at a great price but now Finis have introduced the all new Neptune player, taking the original SwiMP3 concept and introducing some great new features:
• Enhanced bone conduction speaker quality
• High contrast OLED screen
• New durable hydrodynamic design
• Improved file functionality with iTunes™
• Increased storage [4GB]
The new display is a huge step forwards in useability and the Neptune sounds significantly better than the previous model too:
Other players rely on the transmission of sound through air or water which causes the swimmer to hear only muffled noise. Because the Neptune uses bone conduction, the sound vibrations are able to be directly transferred from the cheek bone to the inner ear, giving the swimmer the ultimate sensory experience.
Music has never sounded so good underwater!
The Neptune has a large 4 GB of storage capacity, meaning it will store approximately 1000 songs in MP3 format and the Lithium Ion battery lasts for approximately 8 hours on a charge.
Bonus Swim Technique Stroke Tracks
When you purchase your new Neptune player from Swim Smooth we include a free bonus CD-ROM of special stroke technique tracks to use with it (we sell these separately here). If you're a competitive swimmer or triathlete use these tracks to improve your economy and race speed! There are two types of tracks and they're unique to Swim Smooth, you won't find them anywhere else:
11 stroke rate tracks are included on the CD-ROM. Simply time your strokes to the beep to give yourself precise stroke rate control. Improve your current timing, increase your stroke rate to remove deadspots in your stroke or slow your stroke rate to help you lengthen out. Stroke rate control could be just what you need to improve your swimming technique - and Swim Smooth are experts in doing this. Find out more in our key swimming technique article here on the site: Rhythm and Timing.
Also included are 31 lap-interval tracks for 25m, 33m and 50m pools. These set you a precise swimming pace to swim at. For instance you could select the tracks to give yourself 2:10 per 100m, 1:40 per 100m or 1:20 per 100m. As you swim the tracks will beep when you should reach halfway down the length or the end of the length. No struggling to try to look at your watch - simply pace your swim to the beep and dramatically improve your pacing skills.
Most swimmers and triathletes have very poor pacing technique - these tracks will highlight to you what your pacing skills are like. Most world records are set with perfectly even pacing or a slight negative split (meaning the second half of the race is swum slightly quicker than the first). But nearly all amateur swimmers and triathletes do the opposite - they start much too fast and then fade - big mistake. Improve your pacing skills and you'll instantly set faster race times!
Using the MP3 tracks with your new Neptune player is easy - simply copy the files from the CD-ROM onto the MP3 player using your computer. That's it! We've included two short introductory tracks telling you how to use them.
