If you are one of many people who enjoy/need a little extra motivation to help you during your laps, you’re in luck! I understand completely. For that, I have another secret weapon: Underwater Audio’s Waterproof iPod Shuffle.Listening to music while you swim is a workout saver!
Take my word for it. Once you have one, you’ll never want to swim without one again. If you have any further comments or questions, please write to us in the section below. We’d love to hear from you.
