Our take on the Sony SRF-M85W by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
The Sony SRF-M85W S2 Sports Walkman keeps you up to date when you're on the go. This compact digital radio pulls in FM and AM signals, as well as NOAA broadcasts. You can tune into National Weather Service updates to monitor changing weather while out for a run.
The SRF-M85W features a rugged casing designed for hard usage, and includes a sturdy armband. The radio's angled LED display and ergonomic shape make for easy operation. And its built-in stopwatch makes the Sports Walkman a great exercise companion.
Made excellent changes over the prior version. Much easier and convenient to use. Better than any other brand I found when searching for a replacement of the previous version.

Sony SRF-M85W Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
3-Band Tuner: The SRF-M85V has a built-in FM, AM, and Weather Band tuner with a total of 25 presets. You can preset 15 FM, 5 AM, and 5 Weather stations. The Weather Band tuning function lets you listen to up-to-the-minute weather from your local Weather Band broadcasts. A local/distance (DX) switch provides optimal reception of both near and distant stations. FM tuning is in 0.1MHz steps and AM tuning can be set to 9kHz or 10 kHz. The headphone cord serves as the FM antenna and there is an internal ferrite bar antenna for AM.
Water-resistance: This unit is designed so that it can be used with slight exposure to rain, snow, and other forms of moisture, although it cannot be immersed or come in continuous contact with water.
Arm Strap: The unit has a cloth strap with a reflector that you may put around your arm for convenient transport of the unit while walking, running, etc. The strap is adjustable and secured with Velcro. This model also has a built-in belt clip.
Headphones: The unit comes with small, vertical, in-the-ear type headphones with a plastic, non-folding headband.
Mega Bass: This feature allows you to intensify bass sounds. The Mega Bass can be turned on or off.
Angled LED Display: The convenient LED display is positioned at the perfect angle for easy glancing during rigorous activity.
Clock: This unit has a built-in clock that is displayed on the non-illuminated LCD whenever the unit is turned off. You can also display the clock at any time when the unit is on by pressing the "display" button.
Countdown Timer: The countdown timer allows you to turn the radio off automatically after a preset time, which can be set from 1 minute to 2 hours, in 1-minute increments. After the countdown duration, four beeps sound five times and the radio is turned off.
Pitch Timer: This feature allows you to set the timer with an identical length of time repeatedly, which is great for timed workouts.
Stopwatch Function: The stopwatch can time up to 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59.99 seconds in 1/100-second increments. Two display modes are available: an hour-minute-second display or a minute-second-split second display.
Approximate Battery Life: Using a standard "AAA" battery, you can expect up to 10 hours of continuous playback on the Weather or FM bands, and up to 16 hours on the AM band. When an alkaline "AAA" battery is used, battery life is up to 27 hours for WB and FM and up to 36 hours for AM. A battery indicator displays one of three icons to show current battery strength: Full Strength, Weakening, or Exhausted.
Weight: The unit weighs approximately 3.1 ounces (including battery).
