UwaterK7 Small Waterproof Radio For Swimming
Its Sunday 19th Feburary 2012 and I have just been to the swimming pool with UwaterK7 waterproof radio for swimming.
This waterproof radio works well for breast stroke and is just about acceptable for front crawl but does not work with backstroke, as the headphone wires need to be out of the water to get any radio reception.
Hence although it’s a bit limited for certain swimming strokes it’s an excellent radio for water aerobics, running in rain, kayaking, surfing or windsurfing or kite boarding.or any sport or activity where head is above the water.
The other thing I noticed that even on the lowest volume it is still quite loud but this may be dictated partly by the strength of the radio signal.
I manged to listen to clear reception for both Radio 1 and Radio4. But I picked our the local radio station “Swansea Bay FM” which is the nearest station to the swimming pool (under a mile away) very well.
I should have these in stock in March 2012 & I am sending one of these waterproof radio for swimming to a customer this week to test for me & she has promised feedback in due course… please see her comments at the bottom of this post
