SwimMan launches waterproofed third-gen iPod shuffle

updated 04:40 pm EST, Fri December 11, 2009

Waterproof Apple in-line earphones also available

SwimMan has launched a new waterproofed iPod shuffle, and is offering a combo deal for the holidays. The Shuffle is a 2GB, third-generation model waterproofed from the inside out, and so does not require special external casing. It can be submerged to 25 feet, although the waterproofing process does disable the on-off and shuffle buttons, which can be substituted for with the headset and the center-wheel button. The other buttons remain functional, but tend to be stiffer.

SwimMan is also offering Apple earphones with waterproofed in-line adapter controls. A combined set of the Shuffle, the earphones, a SwimMan Waterproof Headset (with extension cable) and SwimMan Earbuds (small- and regular-sized sets) are on holiday special. The bundle costs $250, a $115 discount off the normal price of $365.
