While we were impressed with the LunaTik iPod nano watch kit in our recent hands-on, it hasn’t stopped us from wondering what other case options are out there for owners of Apple’s newest iPod nano.
Apple has played around with the form factor of the nano perhaps more than any of its other products, so there aren’t as many cases available for the 6th generation nano as there are for other Apple devices.
We set ourselves the challenge of finding some cool cases for the new nano — wrist-based and otherwise — to give you a great selection of coverings to choose from if you’re looking to protect your iPod.
Have a look below for our favorite options and let us know in the comments which ones you like. And be sure to share any others you’ve spotted that look good.
Scosche keeps it simple with these silicone skins available in packs of three. They come in red, black and blue (pictured); or pink, purple and white.
If you prefer things hand-made rather than made en masse, then these colorful, knitted cozies from Etsy might be perfect for your nano.
Created for sporty types, your nano just clips onto Belkin’s armband. It offers a convenient way to keep your music player at hand, but out of harm’s way, during exercise.
4. Griffin Slap
Available in a rainbow of colors, the Slap takes the nano watch case idea back to the Eighties with a flexible, silicone-wrapped spring-steel band that can adjust to fit any size wrist.
If you need some serious protection for your little ‘pod then Navitech’s hard cover case will make sure your nano — and its screen — stay safe from harm.
With its simple attachment — just press, slide and click — the iWatchz will turn your nano into a bright timepiece with incredible ease.
Described as a “fresh, fun, stretchy protection” for your nano, the Wristlet encases your iPod in tough, stretchy silicone while the wrist strap offers an alternative to attaching the device from a clip.
This Etsy seller has taken the watch concept and created a very cool leather wrist cuff that your nano can clip to as a watch.
The classic iSock has been shrunk down for the newest nano. They’re sold as a six pack, meaning you can change the cover to suit your mood, or share the love with five friends.
Cost: £3.85 (approx $5.50)
The new nano may be mini, but it’s not too small to get the Gelaskin treatment. There are a ton of great vinyl designs available to perfectly fit all sides of the little MP3 player. Even if it isn’t technically a “case,” these skins are a cool way to cover your device.
