Wear an iPod nano as a watch



During the recent announcement about the new Apple iPods we heard Steve Jobs say someone at Apple was planning to wear a nano as a watch. Well, it didn't take long for some companies to provide the watch bands. County Comm has the ipod nano Watch Band, a simple 22mm band made from Maratac Nylon. It comes in several colors and sells for $17. The Rock Band from iLoveHandles is a leather band with a special notch made to utilize the nano's built-in clip. It comes in black only and sells for $20.

When displaying its retro clock face the nano does make a cool watch. Now if they can just add WiFi and FaceTime I will finally be able to live out one of my gadget dreams and have a watch just like Dick Tracy. Of course HP recently announced they're developing a Dick Tracy watch for the military, but with the government involved in that project I'm betting Apple will get there first.
