There are several options out there when it comes to taking a portable music player in the pool or to the beach. You could opt for a waterproofed iPod or a dedicated player like Speedo's Aquabeat, but if you really want to downsize then Fitness Technologies diminutive UWaterG2 might be worth a look – it's billed as the smallest fully waterproof MP3 player around.

With dimensions of just 0.4 x 1.25 x 1.75-inch (9 x 30 x 45mm) and weighing in at under an ounce, you might be forgiven for completely forgetting that you're wearing a UWaterG2 MP3 player as you listen to an audio book of Moby Dick while doing laps, or to the theme music from Jaws while paddling on the shoreline. The tiny device features a twist and lock earphone jack seal, comes with a set of four soft silicon ear tips and is waterproof to 10 feet (3m).

The Windows and Mac compatible micro-MP3 player has 2GB of onboard memory and its Li-ion battery is said to give 6 to 8 hours of continuous use before needing some attention. There's USB connectivity for charging and uploading and updating tunes, a color LED mode control and a built-in headband/armband/belt clip.

The UWaterG2 is available in five color variations from Fitness Technologies and is priced at US$79.95, but at the time of writing is on sale for US$20 less.
