Uses classic wristwatch design
Further taking advantage of the iPod nano's "clock face" watch app which has spawned an entire mini-industry of wrist straps for it, accessory maker Hex has expanded its own lineup of sixth-generation Nano wristbands to include the new Vision Classic Leather band, which uses genuine leather and top-stitched embroidered edges in the classic styling. It's available in four color choices: black white, British tan and gray, and also sports a patented clip-based, coated stainless steel plate for removing or inserting the Nano without scratching.
Because of the classic design, the strap goes well with any of the Nano's 18 clock face options. The small music and app player has quietly taken hold as a popular choice for a watch, disrupting yet another industry while reviving the fashion of wearing a watch at the same time. The website indicates that the straps are also compatible with a yet-to-be-announced seventh generation Nano, though it's unlikely that the company actually has advanced knowledge of Apple's plans for the Nano, if any.
The Vision Classic Leather Bands are now available and cost $50, and can be ordered through Apple's online store or the company's website.
