Griffin Slap turns the iPod nano 6th gen into a bright colored watch

Griffin turns new nano into a watch

| Audio, Sound & Speakers News | Posted: Nov 17, 2010 7:00 pm

When the new iPod nano launched with its touchscreen and the face that could be a clock, there were geeks everywhere that had the same though. The new nano would make a really cool and geeky watch with the right case. So far, we have seen a number of watchbands for the nano surface and some were cooler than others were. Griffin has jumped into the game with a new nano watchband called the Slap.

My kids will recognize right away that this is one of those slap bracelets that they play with. The Slap from Griffin Technology is a silicon case with a flexible metal inside. Once you put your nano into the area that holds it all you have to do is slap the thing onto your wrist. The band will wrap around your wrist automatically making for a snug fit.

 

The case has a thin silicone band around the face. That band prevents you from rubbing the nano's screen on a surface as you move around. The thing offers no protection for the class from impacts that miss the case edges. The thing will launch soon for $24.99 each and will be offered in multiple colors for the user to choose from. The external controls are covered when the nano is in the band, but the touchscreen will function.
