Since the debut of the sixth generation iPod nano in late 2010, watchband cases have become all the rage. Within only a few weeks of release, numerous iPod nano watchbands started popping up, some better than others. There’s a new watchband in town now, and it’s shaping up to be the most impressive one yet. The Syre is the first iPod nano case to feature Bluetooth technology built in.
While other iPod nano watchbands required you to plug in a set of headphones in order to listen to your music on your wrist, the Syre includes a Bluetooth receiver which automatically lets you listen to your music wirelessly, with any set of compatible headphones.
The main focus of the Syre is to offer athletes a full range of motion when working out. Typically, headphone cords limit the movement of athletes when working out. The Syre solves this problem, and is therefore a perfect companion for an active lifestyle.
While no release date has been specified as of now, you can check out the project on Kickstarter to find more information. The project will only be funded if $75,000 can be attained for manufacturing, so if this is something you’re interested in, you might want to give it a look. Two models of the watchband will be sold, one with and one without Bluetooth functionality. The bands will start at $39.95 without Bluetooth.
