Tune Belt 'Open View'
Tune Belt today rolled out three new accessories designed for Apple's video iPod, iPod nano, and second-generation iPod shuffle. The company has expanded its 'Open View' carrier belts to include a lightweight neoprene edition that comes in two sizes. One smaller sized belt is designed for Apple's iPod nano, while a larger version accommodates the company's video iPod. The video iPod belt also offers an extra pocket on the back to hold personal items such as credit cards, keys, and change. The smaller belt for iPod nano provides a space to stow the Nike+iPod Sport Kit receiver. Both belts allow users to read and control the iPod through a clear protective Mylar window, and both support the insertion of devices in either direction to accommodate left as well as right-handed users. The new 'Open View' Tune Belts are available for $20.
The company introduced a new 'Open View' Wristband and Belt case for Apple's iPod nano, securely strapping to users wrists, forearms, or fitness equipment to protect the small player during day-to-day activities. Users can operate the nano through a clear Mylar window as with the 'Open View' belts above, and the accessory supports inserting the iPod in either direction for ease of use. The 'Open View' Wristband carrier is priced at $17, while the Belt case is available for $15.
Tune Belt today released an 'Open View Armband' carrier for Apple's second-generation iPod shuffle, offering all of the same features as the 'Open View' armbands above but without the Mylar window. The lightweight armband offers cord management, and is available for $15.
