iPod Nano Watches Get Just A little Cooler

People have been trying to turn the iPod Nano into a wrist-wearable device for a while now but all the designs so far have lacked on feature or another (or cost way too much) to make them practical.  HEX is looking to change all that with their new iPod Nano watch band but is it anything more than what we’ve already seen?

The “device” (if it can truly be called that) is just a plasticized watch band that snugly holds your little sixth generation iPod Nano and casually drapes around your wrist.  That’s good because you don’t have to worry about software interfacing or Bluetooth or anything complicated.  It’s also bad news because, well, it’s just a watch band. 

Still, with a price tag just shy of $30, it’s probably the most user-friendly (and by that I mean practical) options available to those of us who want to emulate David Hasslehoff’s heroic antics on Knight Rider.  Also, the band is built out of flexible and durable material so you really don’t have to worry about product failure unless you take it to the surface of the sun or some other inhospitable clime. 

The HEX Nano watch band comers in 9 colorful colors ranging from the sleek and understated to eye-popping neon.
