Swimming is considered the best form of exercise you can indulge in. After all, each and every muscle group in your body is engaged when you are swimming, and the best part is you are unlikely to feel as fatigued as you would if you worked out for an hour at the gym. However, like other workouts, swimming can get boring as well. But what if you could listen to music while swimming? If you are into gadgets and audio tech, you would know that there are a number of devices on the market which can enable you to listen to music while you are in the water. Here’s how you can go about it:
There are specific devices which have been designed to fit within a waterproof pocket. The pocket is attached on your upper arm while you are swimming. The MP3 player will have your playlist on while you continue on with your laps. This enables you to focus on the workout without feeling bored. Unlike regular exercise, you cannot really interact with other swimmers, so listening to music can prove the ideal solution to this. However, to use this device, you need waterproof headphones, and this leads us to…
Buy a pair of waterproof earphones. Thankfully, there are a variety of headphones you can choose from, so you can select one that fits perfectly in or over your ears and more importantly, doesn’t get damaged by exposure to water. Waterproof earphones are also referred to as swimphones and are the key if you want to listen to music while swimming.
Alternatively, you can go for a unique MP3 player which doesn’t require you to wear earphones. You might be wondering how you will be able to listen to music while swimming if you don’t have headphones on. Well, the way this device works is by sending vibrations through your skull. There are two plates which are connected to your goggles and then placed on your head. When your playlist starts, the plates send vibrations which enable you to listen to the music. However, these devices, such as the Finis SwiMP3, are recommended only if you don’t want to wear earphones.
So, as you can see, there are a number of devices you can purchase and have the pleasure of listening to music while you are swimming. This will make swimming more fun and you might be able to put in more laps than you usually do!
