Smartphones can do it all, but they’re not always the best choice. For music and fitness lovers, the phone might have to limited battery time and for those Transcend released the Black and White MP710 digital music player.
Next to the music player it has some built-in functions to keep track of your fitness progress. You can set workout times, calories limits, number of steps or the distance traveled as goals and to be notified when those goals are reached and it works with a built-in G-Sensor step counter. A simple but effective method.
One of the advantages of such a device is the increased battery time compared to your smart phone. The MP710 can deliver 42 hours of music playback on a single charge. It has 8GB storage and a 2-inch full colour TFT display that should be viewable even in bright sunlight.
It also doubles as a voice recorder, line-in recorder and comes with built-in FM radio. You can scheduled recording of radio broadcasts or use it for interviews with up to 28 hours continuous use while the A-B repeat function will help you when you have to write down a transcript of the recorded audio.
