HEX ships bands that turn iPod nano into wristwatch

HEX silicone bands now shipping in nine colors

HEX has begun shipping its watch bands for the iPod nano. Made of reportedly tear-proof silicone, it lets users pop the Apple music player into the enclosure. The earphone jack opening is placed so that users can run the cables up a sleeve if they prefer.

The screen of the nano remains uncovered, so users can control the device unobstructed. The sides also sport pop-out buttons that cover the nano's own hardware controls. HEX is now shipping in the US in nine colors, each priced at $30.

    would prefer brushed aluminum...

    ... in silver, black or gold anodized..

    (also, in this application, bluetooth would have been nice for the headphones if only nano had it :/)
