If you’ve ever got caught up in a jumble of headphone wires while trying to better your 5 km running best or doing those few final bicep curls, you can vouch for how utterly irritating wires are. RCA’s Jet Stream MP3 player makes your workout a little less frustrating since it is completely wireless.
This 1GB MP3 player includes some nice added extras to make it even more active friendly. Onboard you’ll find a stopwatch and pedometer, a calorie counter, and a Body Mass Index calculator. It is splash proof, plus it contains an FM radio, and although you can view photos on the colour display, frankly it’s just too small.
To make the earphones not drop out while exercising they come with removable ear clips and are quite comfortable. You also get an arm and wrist strap so you don’t have to struggle carrying the unit around. This MP3 player is not the latest top of the line stuff, but still a very good choice for an active lifestyle.
Available from Computer Corporation on 08616-08616 for R950.

PROS
It is wireless, armband included, stopwatch and pedometer too.
CONS
Have to use the armband because it loses connection easily.
