The New and Improved iPod Nano Watch

The first iPod Nano watch, designed for Apple's new watch-sized iPod Nano, was basically just a nylon strap. Pretty unimaginative. These new funky-color silicone bands from Hex actually make Apple's diminutive iPod look like a not-entirely-ridiculous timepiece.

The $24.95 Hex band has a pop-in design which incorporates the Nano into the watch (as opposed to just sticking it on a band, like the first one did). It has integrated control buttons and comes in 9 colors.

But here's the question: does snaking your headphone cord up your sleeve in this situation make the idea of wearing an iPod as a watch more or less silly? [ShopHex]

I'm taking a break from snark to say that this is really cool.

I can't wear watches because having most metals near my skin causes

an allergic reaction. So the band being made out of [edit] silicone

is an added bonus. That said, it looks like it was crocheted by my

Nana fro Christmas, or it should be on the Quacker Factory.
