Geek Trend – The iPod Nano Becomes the iWatch



Well that didn’t take long.  Steve Jobs quipped that the new iPod nano would make a good wristwatch, and last week brought news of the first iPod nano watch band.  Now several contenders are offering products for sale.

And the iWatch was born.  And it was Good.

Provided you’re willing to look like a geek with a headphone cord dangling from your wrist when you listen to music.

We brought news last week of the AppleWatch from County Comm, a nylon band in colors to match your nano.  A simple solution, surely soon be hawked at airport kiosks worldwide.

Meanwhile Incipio takes the “I’m a watch, conceal the iPod” approach with their Linq series of color-matched cases.  These look like they provide decent protection too, almost makes me want a nano just to try it out!

Flick user ogikubokei jumped on the trend early with a classic Timex’esque plastic motif that brings back memories of yesteryear.  Or today, for that matter.  You can probably make this at home!

Finally, iLoveHandles offers the Rock Band, a classic understated leather band to display your iWonder.  Gotta do something about that headphone cord though.

Now here’s an opportunity for an enterprising company to add a stereo bluetooth transmitter to their watch band and make a killing!  Any takers out there?
