Hi guys.

Really want to get into swimming since its such a good work out, however I can never do more than 10 laps because I get epically bored.

Does anyone have an under water swimming case they could recommend / website they'd recommend (for Ipod nano)?

So far I've found this:

any help/advice appreciated.

Thanks!

I would personally say look into waterproof players, underwater cases like that are big and annoying to swim with and a small memory size waterproof mp3 player won't cost much these days.

You'll need waterproof earphones too, of course.

I've seen someone who uses these every day at my local swimming pool (http://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/wa...w273-nwz-w274s)

I don't know much about them myself, but it's certainly preferable to putting an iPod in a bag and dragging it along, especially if the seal on the bag was to break. Also the entire device including earphones sits on the ears, so it's not like you have to clip it to somewhere and then have wires everywhere.

wow, that's cheap and stylish! although reading through the reviews, not all of them are amazing, with many saying bad quality in water etc (which I guess is expected to an extent).

any other recommendations? at 60£ this aint half bad for a punt I guess.

thanks. ill check out the reviews after exams. this one is 105$ in amazon.com; 105£ in amazon.co.uk....*******S lol.

hmmm the sony one is only 40£ on amazon. wonder if the other one is worth the extra cost, especially when my job means im barely ever available to go swimming regularly.

Sony do a great set of headphones with built in Walkman player designed for wimmers. It's £60 but I'd probably buy one myself:
