Amphibx Fit compatible with Shuffle, Nano 6G
Wearing an iPod while exercising -- particularly outdoors -- can expose the player to unwanted moisture, either due to weather or simply sweat. H2O Audio has introduced an armband called the Amphibx Fit for Nano designed for the sixth-generation iPod Nano that also works with the Shuffle and other small MP3 players that is waterproof, sweatproof and weatherproof, but is still very lightweight.
The soft case features a special hatch for easy loading and unloading of the music player, and the clear touch window allows the user to retain control of Shuffle or Nano functions. The Velcro armband features a "breathable" material and an ergonomic shape, and is of course washable.
The company says the armband is 100 percent waterproof up to 12 feet, so it could even be used in a pool. It is ideal for those who run in sometimes-inclement conditions or those who engage in vigorous workouts. The Amphibix Fit for Nano is available now from the company's website, Amazon.com, Apple Stores, Best Buy, The Sports Authority and other retailers. It sells for $50, and does not include headphones.
