In sleek and seamless aluminium, the NW-E200 Series can withstand water splashes from wet hands, perspiration or outdoor use, even in wet or snowy weather conditions. At the same time its stylish “stick & ring” design in silver, pink or black will appeal to those who just want their MP3 player to look good.

The Walkman NW-S200 Sports MP3 player features in-built product intelligence to support its sports counter functions. Via an integral gravity sensor and simple-to-use graphical user interface, real-time calorie usage, distance travelled, steps taken and running time can be monitored, eliminating the need to carry a separate pedometer or stop-watch whilst exercising.

Users can also set personal targets for each exercise session so thatthe music stops after a specific time period has lapsed, calories expendedor distance has been travelled.

All functions are operated via a simple jog dial shuttle for ease of use whilst the user is on the move.

MUSIC PACER - A number of intelligent sound and playback features enhance the listening experience, whatever the user is doing. The “Music Pacer” feature can be activated to automatically detect the user’s pace of step and change the music accordingly from pre-made playlists.

The player supports MP3, Atrac, and non-DRM WMA and AAC files and will be available throughout Europe from September 2006.
