Those with an active mobile lifestyle will instantly recognize the W Series Walkman’s wireless heart-shaped band design. Compact and lightweight, the W series Walkman is designed to stay put during exercise, even with the most vigorous and intense activities.

The new NWZ-W273 Walkman is also waterproof, which means that even swimmers, waterpolo players and canoeists can now enjoy listening to their favourite tunes even when they are in the water.

With a 4GB storage capacity to file approximately 1,000 songs, users will never grow weary of listening to the same songs repeatedly. One can easily drag and drop DRM-free music files and playlists from iTunes® for Mac or PC, Windows® Media Player, or Windows Explorer.

In addition, the NWZ273 Walkman has a long battery life with up to 8 hours of continuous playback on a full charge, meaning that you never have to worry about the music dying off before you do during a workout. Furthermore, its quick-charge function means that just three minutes of charging can give you an hour’s worth of music, perfect for those of us who had forgotten to charge our MP3 players and night before and are in a hurry to head out of the house.

Thoughts:

The waterproof feature is definitely good to have, for most sporty or fitness bunch (or those with slight butterfingers, oops :X). Wonder how it will work/function during swimming and if the music quality remains the same or would be muffled a little… hmm.


As for the 3min fast charging feature, it will be useful for those with loads of gadgets to charge but accidentally left out one or who has a 
depleting portable batter charger or just for a quick exercise session and still wanting to enjoy his/her songs while exercising.
