iPod Nano Watch


Santa Claus came early this year and brought me an iPod Nano 8GB (6th generation). Yes, it’s the multi-touch and it’s also in orange. I’m actually so excited about it that I haven’t connected it to my iTunes and wanted to write this post.

Here are the specs:
Size and weight

  • Height: 1.48 inches (37.5 mm)
  • Width: 1.61 inches (40.9 mm)
  • Depth: 0.35 inch (8.78 mm)
  • Weight: 0.74 ounce (21.1 grams)

Display

  • 1.54-inch (diagonal) color TFT display
  • 240-by-240-pixel resolution
  • 220 pixels per inch

Application Specifications

  • FM Radio
  • Voice Over
  • Photos
  • Music Player (of course)
  • Pedometer

When this model was first released, people started making remarks to turn it into a watch. Sure enough manufacturers started making watch bands that can hold the iPod Nano. I’ve taken a look a few of these bands and I’m not thoroughly impressed. Other than the HEX Nano watch band, the rest are bracelets where you clip on the Nano.

I tried to make my own. First, I tried to use a previous leather bracelet of mine but the current holes didn’t line up. Fail. Then, I tried fashioning a bracelet from a belt. Apparently, I don’t have enough tools to handle leather. Fail. Finally, I was searching on the web for a solution, looked down and looked at my power adapter. My power adapter had a rubber strip for cable management. Success!

I clipped on the Nano to the band, wrapped it around my wrist and “Tada!” Now I have a Nano Watch. I’m curious to know what you’ve done. Emails and comments are welcome.

Which iPod are you?
