Watches have gone from function to fashion. Pretty much everyone I know checks the time on their cell phone these days, but who doesn’t love a sharp-looking accessory?
The most recent iPod nano includes 18 clever clock faces, so strapping one to your wrist is a fun way to keep tabs on the hours, minutes, and seconds. Plus, having the nano strapped to your person all day makes it easier to use the pedometer feature to track your steps. (I hear it plays music, too.)
Hex offers eight watch bands for the discerning iPod nano wearer, but the Vision Classic Leather version is the most handsome I’ve tried, from any company. It’s subtle, letting the nano’s clean design be the centerpiece. It’s quality, with real buttery leather in black, tan, white, or gray. And it’s comfortable and easy to use, with a stainless steel plate where you clip the nano, leaving all buttons and the dock port easily accessible.
The bottom line. Fifty bones seems like a better price for a leather belt than a watch band, but once you’ve shelled out $129 or $149 for an iPod nano (8GB or 16GB), it’s not so bad. And having that nano front and center on your wrist keeps all the function, plus the fashion, at your fingertips.
Vision Classic Leather Watch
6th- or 7th-gen iPod nano
Genuine leather. Four colors. Easy to attach and detach iPod nano.
A touch on the pricey side, but not too bad considering the quality.
