Nano sport integration
H2O Audio today began shipping its new Sport Integration System (site not updated), allowing owners of the company's iPod nano case to "quick clip" the protective cover onto various items like backpacks or handlebars. The Sport Integration System provides secure portability for iPod nano owners using H2O Audio's own case with a bike mount that adjusts to fit any standard handlebars, as well a a "thump-tip" feature to keep the player in view while riding or working out. A clothing clip enables quick transfer to and from sports apparel, and a strap mount attaches to backpack shoulder straps for hiking or camping. The Quick Clip Locking System enables quick connections with the bike mount, clothing clip, and strap mount as well as with the company's iPod nano armband. H2O Audio's Sport Integration System is priced at $30, and is available at Apple stores as well as online.
