SanDisk Clip Sport Plus MP3 Player Review
This no-frills digital audio player is aimed at runners and other athletes, but it is a great choice for seniors too. It is easy to use with a clear screen and simple controls on the face of the device. It has a clip that you can use to attach it to your belt, which means that it won’t fall out of your pocket when you’re on the go.
The buttons are well-contrasted and easy to see. But, they use symbols instead of words. So, the user must be familiar with the arrow meanings to use it properly. Actual words like “play” or “stop” is a better choice for users with dementia or those not tech-friendly.
The player has built-in FM radio, and supports Bluetooth headphones too. If there’s any downside, it’s that it has only 16GB of storage space. That’s enough for 4,000 songs at 128kbps, however many people down use FLAC files or much higher bitrate MP3s.
The player has a 20-hour battery life, making it ideal for long journeys. It is compatible with most modern computers, including Windows PCs, Linux and Mac OS. Managing your audio library is easy, and making playlists is easy too.
One of the best things about this device is that it is water resistant, and quite rugged. This means that it’s a nice choice for an older person who likes gardening or other outdoor pursuits, since it will be able to handle ‘light abuse’, such as being dropped, or getting wet during inclement weather.
A small and simple MP3 player with no frills but an extremely easy interface. The buttons and screen are clear and well contrasted but small in size.
