Spotting Fake Sony Music Players and More

I once had a waterproof  music player from Sony  for my running and outdoor events. However, after a month of use, I lost it while running a long distance with fellow runners.

Sony Music Player can be quite pricey; my Sports water proof MP3 costs about 5000.00 and to see the same gadgets sold at much cheaper rates can be quite alarming.

So, how do we spot the fake from original music player? This might help:

  • Price. Check the commercial rates of what you should buy. There can be a local Sony Center with a wide exhibit of their gadgets. Take note of the price of a real one and if  you are sold to something cheaper, be very weary.
  • Physical Characteristics. Just like wampler ego at musician's friend  that  would look good if original, check out distinct features of an original gadget, from color  to capacity.
  • Quality.  While quality and price can be relative, one can't get much from a cheap gadget. I bought 3 new cheap music players but they only lasted, no more than 6 months. So, if you want something to last, get only from a legitimate dealer.  

Triathlon Apparel and More

From running, I simply fall in love with triathlon and I say this sports event is quite tough.  With a continuous activity of swim, bike and run  on progressive distances, one can only be very drained and hungry after the workout.

My last bike crash had caused me to be out of the loop from long runs, biking and swimming and now that I am back, I still need to be more careful as my once - broken hand is still stiff.

Having a triathlon suit for a tri - event is only necessary as the activities call that we are mobile and agile as we complete all the events.

Nevertheless, we just have to have fun and  consider safety at all times.
