Hammacher MP3 Pedometer
Hammacher Schlemmer is today carrying the hybrid MP3 Player/Pedometer/Radio for frequent exercisers. Similar to Sony's recently launched S2 Sports Walkman, the Hammacher player stores an internal pedometer that tracks distance as well as time, allowing joggers to set benchmarks for each session. As a music player, the jukebox supports either 1GB of MP3 songs or FM radio tuning and can last for as long as 10 hours of steady playback. This is in part due to an energy-efficient 128x64 OLED display, Hammacher says. An additional voice recording ability provides as much as 12 hours of stored audio. The MP3 Player/Pedometer/Radio ships immediately for $100.
