New accessory to turn your 6th gen iPod nano into iWatch

Apple iPod nano iWatch

Apple’s 6th gen iPod nano has a “rocking new design” and with multi-touch screen you can easily navigate to select your music without any click wheel.

When photos of the small touch screen panel which was rumored to be Apple’s new product hit the web many people speculated that it might turn out to be an iWatch. The new iPod nano feels more like an iPod shuffle with touch controls as Apple has taken away the video recording and playing capabilities.

In the last week many accessory makers have started offering straps and cases for the new 6th gen nano and a few of them caught our attention.

Third party accessory makers were quick to offer their solutions to turn your new iPod nano into an iWatch and we recently reported on a watch strap called Rock Band by iLovehandles. The nano clips onto the specially designed leather strap and enables you to wear the nano on your wrist however, it does not provide any protection for the screen. So, if you wear it on a daily basis you might end up with scratches on the screen.

Incipio offers another great solution and turns your nano into a wristwatch with its new accessory called “Linq”

Incipio is taking a whole new design path with this wrist-worn carrying solution for the iPod nano. Meet the most rugged carrying solution for iPod nano produced to date, the Linq™. This is for users who already have or aspire for a lifestyle of action. Linq™ provides the user with an all-day, everyday accessory that may be worn effortlessly but always boldly.

Your once fragile iPod nano is not so fragile anymore as it sits in Incipio’s award winning Next Generation Polymer material securing to the wrist with a nylon and Velcro interchangeable strap.

    PS: The other one is worthless, too, because it doesn’t allow you to turn the pod 90 degrees right or left. Many, if not most, are going to use this with a Bluetooh extender from Sony or Motorola (can you imagine how awful it would be with a corded headset?) and as it is, it would cause that extender to come out over the arm (unless a person had awfully thick arms) where it would be in harms way. If you could turn the pod 90 degrees left, the extender would do on the arm..then you can use the Pod’s feature to turn the face 90 degrees right, then you upright with a safe place for the Bluetooth extender. Does anyone actually use these things before they design them?

    From the photos of the Incipio, the power connection will be covered which renders it useless. Most people will use the Nano with a Bluetooth extender. No way to do it with this band. Too Bad.

    I think it’s a great idea and want the Black Linq strap. I would prefer a Black 90 degree 3.5mm jack, as this would look better.
