Product Description

Product Description

1gb flash Sports digital music player with armband

Designed with an active lifestyle in mind, the Sony NW-S205F is the perfect companion for your workouts, ski trips, or commutes. The unique, cylindrically shaped MP3 player is packed with a host of valuable features, including a calorie counter that tracks the calories you've burned based on your weight and length of workout, a stopwatch that lets you track your speed, and a pedometer. Listeners who need a little extra motivation while exercising will love the Music Pacer, which switches playlists based on their pace. If you're walking, it chooses a relatively slow playlist, while hard- charging runners will receive a much more up-tempo soundtrack (the feature can be disabled at any time). And when you're finished with the workout, the music will automatically stop once the target time has passed.

The NW-S205F isn't just a workout warrior, however, as it boasts 2 GB of built-in flash memory that stores up to 1,350 songs. Listeners who already have extensive music libraries can use the included software and hardware to play back their collection of MP3s, while newer listeners will find plenty to like in Sony's ATRAC format, which provides higher sound quality while taking up less space on the flash memory. In addition, the NW-S205F supports the playback of WMA and AAC (non-DRM) audio files, a great feature if you have a large catalog of audio on your PC that was ripped from personal CDs.

Navigation is straightforward thanks to the player's one-line OLED display, which shows the song title, album title, and artist name along with information about the settings, time, and date. The built-in FM tuner, meanwhile, delivers accurate, drift-free tuning of all your favorite FM stations, with 30 station presets making it a breeze to quickly switch from one favorite to another. And when it comes time to transfer data from your PC to the NW-S205F, simply connect the unit to your computer's USB 2.0 port to enjoy a high-speed transfer rate.

The NW-S205F comes with a copy of Sony's SonicStage music management software, which lets listeners manage their music, create playlists, burn CDs, import digital files, and easily transfer songs from one location to another. It's also a breeze to customize the sound, with a five-band equalizer that includes heavy, pop, jazz, custom, and manual modes. Additional features include a seamless, water-resistant aluminum body; a Shuffle Shake mode that activates the shuffle function with three quick shakes (great when jogging); a skip-proof design (the MP3 player has no moving parts); a quick battery charge function that delivers up to three hours of playback with just a three-minute charge; and compatibility with Sony's Connect Music store.

The NW-S205F, which provides up to 18 hours of continuous playback per full charge, measures 3.79 by 0.78 by 0.59 inches (W x H x D) and is backed by a 90-day warranty on labor and a one-year warranty on parts.
