- You knew someone was going to do it, it was just a question of time. The real question is, does the iPod Nano actually work as a wristwatch? Well, that depends on your definition of â€śworksâ€ť. Photo: CountyComm.com
- The 22mm band slips through the nano's clip, and, well, makes the Apple's iPod into a watch, allowing you to see the time on a device that will need to be charged up far more often than a normal wrist-based timepiece. There's also the issue of having headphones plugged into your wrist, as that's just asking for a world of tangles and anger. Photo: CountyComm.com
- We also need someone to make a Bluetooth attachment for the iPod nano so we can wirelessly stream music from the end of our arm to our ears â€“ then we will officially be living in the future. Photo: CountyComm.com
- However, thereâ€™s a few problems, right off the bat. First off: battery life. The Nano only has about 8-10 hours of battery life in continuous use, which is less then desirable for a wristwatch. I mean, who wants a watch that you have to recharge every night? Next off, a lack of water resistance. The Nano is not intended to be used near water, and your hands generally are near water more often then you realize. Finally, as a fashion accessory. I like a chunky watch as much as the next guy, but the new Nano is still a little large to wear on your wrist. Photo: CountyComm.com
- The watch strap only cost $17 (ÂŁ11) from County Comm, but they're currently not available for the UK as yet â€“ but don't worry, we reckon it's only a matter of time before a watch manufacturer realises that their stock will fit the nano and they can begin marketing the iPod nano watchstrap too.

Steve Jobs may have alluded to the new iPod nano as being watch-like, but Apple hasn’t come out with a watch attachment. No worries, as unsurprisingly a watch manufacturer has come out with an iPod nano band to do just that.
