I've been slowly getting back into a workout routine, lately. I've also been frustrated with trying to listen to music while I workout. I have an iPhone, so I've been struggling with the fact that I have to wear something with pockets, so I can have a place to put my phone, or place it in the container on my treadmill (with my headphones dangling across. I will inevitably knock my earphones out of my ears every time I reach for my water bottle. Ugh!
Finally, I found a remedy! The SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip MP3 music player is PERFECT! It is so tiny. So portable. So easy. And did I say perfect? I love it! The clip on the SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip is amazing. I know that sounds silly, but I have used music devices before that are difficult to get the clip onto your workout clothing. And as I said, my iPhone has no clip at all.
Here's some specs:
- Easy clip on, Easy Go
- 1.1" full color screen with new graphical user interface and
album art display
- Voice recording with built-in microphone
- Play or record FM radio stations
- AAC Compatible (DRM-free iTunes)
- Expanded memory slot
- User-friendly interface
- Versatility meets affordability.
- AAC Compatible (DRM-free iTunes), MP3, WMA, secure WMA, Ogg
Vorbis, and FLAC. Rhapsody Music trial offer*** (CD &
Yes, FM radio. Yay! I love listening to my favorite radio station STAR 102.1 in the mornings. So if I am working out during 6-10 a.m. I tune in to them. If it's later, I enjoy my music I uploaded by just drag and clicking.
I also love the voice recording. I sometimes (yes, it's true) have moments of great clarity while I'm working out… now I can record my thoughts for later use. Because, although I may have moments of clarity, I usually forget them by the time my workout is over.
My only complaint about the SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip is that it's dark purple. I'd prefer orange… I'm a UT fan and bleed orange! Hey, if my only complaint is the color, I really don't have anything to complain about!
