2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year Nomination

The FINIS Stream was nominated for the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year Award as follows:

Waterproof cassette players were around in the 1990's, waterproof MP3 players came to market in the 2000s. Through their swim laboratory in Silicon Valley, FINIS developed breakthrough underwater headphones using its patented bone conduction technology. Small speakers vibrate at their temples that create crystal clear sound underwater. While legacy products still use MP3 audio files, FINIS Stream allows swimmers to pair with their smartwatch and stream their favorite music, audio books or podcasts directly from Spotify, Apple Music or other preferred services. For utilization of FINIS' market-leading underwater bone conduction technology that easily connects with goggles to enhance the auditory experience for swimmers, for designing an innovative product that does not need ear buds while comfortably providing crystal clear sound in the water, and for enabling up to 5 hours of continuous music on a single charge, the FINIS Stream is a worthy nominee for the 2019 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
