Designed for those who like to jog, the Sony NW-S203F will provide those fleet footed runners access to the music they love. The unit features many exercise-friendly features including a calorie counter that determines the number of calories you have burned based on your weight and the length of your workout. The NW-S203F features a stopwatch option and a pedometer that can count the strides you’ve taken. The most amazing feature is the ‘music pacer’ that detects whether a person is running or walking. Depending on the person's pace (walk or run), the unit will either play fast or slow paced music (provided you have input separate walking and running playlists). You also have to enter your height, weight and stride distance to fully utilize all the functions. But once entered, you have a wealth of information regarding your calories usage and the distance you have covered.

The NW-S203F comes with an armband strap. The strap is fully adjustable, is made from a stretchy material and velcro's closed. It is water resistant too so you can continue your exercise routine even if it starts raining. Reviewers indicate that the audio quality matches the Sony trademark name, it is simply top notch. The accompanying headphones are well-designed and will not fall out of your ears even when you are sprinting at full pace. The S203F also is equipped with an FM radio that can provide the tunes or allow you to tune into that key game, but recording is not an option. Users suggest running the headphone wires directly up the arm, through a shirtsleeve and up and out of the neck hole to your ears so as to prevent any sudden jarring on the earlobes. Overall, the Sony NW-S203F is incredibly light and comfortable to wear. It is easy to use and can provide the jogger information mid-run. The supplied headphones are well made and the overall sound quality is excellent. Throw in the FM tuner with good auto scan and it more than makes up for the average battery life and the special mini-USB jack that is necessary for usage.
