Oregon Scientific’s MP121 MP3 Player

I don’t like to worry about getting sand or water on my Ipod, even with one of those protective cases, so, instead, I keep the MP121 packed in my suitcase, loaded with vacation tunes. It’s totally waterproof, as are the headphones, so I can float on the water with my favorite music, worry-free…which is what beach time is all about: no worries. It even has a radio if I want to tune into the local airwaves, and a pedometer if I feel like a morning run.

The activity watch includes an accelerometer, barometer, and altimeter. These slightly different tools are helpful if you hike or walk on uneven or soft surfaces like the beach. The accelerometer gives you a more accurate picture of how long you have been active and how much distance you have covered when you work out on softer surfaces. The pedometer can't always track as accurately on the softer surfaces.
