SanDisk Clip Sport MP3 Player

SanDisk Clip Sport

In the first part of February SanDisk announced the new SanDisk Clip Sport MP3 player that was aimed at athletes and fitness enthusiasts, and they were nice and sent us one. Now you are thinking Why do I need a dedicated MP3 player? I have a smart phone. Well running or working out with a large phone like my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 sucks. Its a massive phone, and it bouncing around in my pocket while running is not only hard on my leg, but the phone too.

The SanDisk Clip Sport is small, light, and with 4GB or 8GB internal storage more than enough for a couple hours in the gym. If you want more, the Clip Sport has a micro SD slot for expanding the storage of the unit. The Clip Sport also has an FM tuner, play audio books, and a Stopwatch feature. With the Stopwatch you can log your runs with lap times.

SanDisk offers the Clip Sport is several colors: Black, Red, Yellow, Blue, Lime, and Pink. So finding one that fits your style should be easy. Each Clip Sport comes with a set of matching ear buds. With the Clip Sport you dont need a special arm band case, the unit has a clip on the back of the unit that will allow you to clip it to your shirt, belt, or even a wrist band.

Lets take a quick look at the Clip Sports features and specifications.
