iPod nano review -- as a watch

 

iPod nano watchbands -- they're everywhere! Seriously, ever since Steve Jobs said that an unnamed Apple board member jokingly planned to wear the new nano

Sturdy clip ; It's an iPod nano ; Extreme nerd factor

Slow to wake and display time ; Potential completely untapped ; Extreme nerd factor

iPod nano review (2010)

 

Apple's sixth generation of the iPod nano is essentially the first complete rethinking the product has had since its debut in 2005. The previous form

New touchscreen UI is slick ; Smaller and lighter than ever before ; Sound quality was very good

Still a bit pricey ; Small size makes it easy to lose ; Lack of video playback could bother some

Apple iPod Nano Review (Sixth Generation)

 

Almost impossibly tiny ; Ultra-intuitive touch interface ; FM radio, photo browsing and pedometer ; Sleek, solid design ; Long battery life

Missing camera, video playback, notes, games, etc. ; Touch controls limit ‘blind’ operation ; Expensive

Apple iPod Nano 2011 8GB, orange

 

The current seventh-generation Nano was introduced way back in 2012, but still lists for $150 (£129, AU$219). Even with Apple's built-in pricing premium, it feels like it should cost about 40 percent less at this point.

The Apple iPod Nano has a sleek aluminum design, FM radio, Bluetooth and long battery life.

With no Wi-Fi, you're stuck syncing music via USB from a PC or Mac running iTunes. It doesn't work with Apple Music subscriptions, and the low-res screen is tiny.

The iPod Nano is an aging music player that's hurt by its outdated reliance on iTunes and lack of subscription music compatibility.

Apple iPod nano (2011)

 

The latest iteration of the Apple iPod nano does little to improve on the previous generation player, but a price drop makes it a better deal.

Lightweight, clip-on design. Larger icons make it easier to navigate menu. Simple, intuitive user interface. Screen can be adjusted to face in four directions. Several clock faces so you can wear the player as a watch. Strong battery life.

Small screen. No video recording or playback. Lousy earbuds, no integrated controls. Watch bands are not included.

Review: Apple iPod Nano 16 GB

 

Apple's latest product: wristwatch or iPod? Discuss among yourselves.

Beautiful if miniscule display. Impressive touch-sensitive interface. Compact, lightweight, minimalist design. Easy-to-use pedometer function. Clock face can be white on black, or the reverse

Watchband not included. No wireless headphone support, so you’ll have to string yourself up with headphone wires. Checking the time can take a few steps. Battery life far shorter than most watches

Apple 16GB iPod nano (sixth generation, late 2010)

 

No iPod model has received as many makeovers—both minor and dramatic—as the iPod nano. (Perhaps not coincidentally, no other iPod model has sold as well.) The originalnano was simply a scaled-down version of the standard iPod—tall and thin with a...

Better media-browsing than previous models ; Compact size ; Multi-Touch and interface improve many functions ; Convenient clip

Cheaper earbuds, smaller screen than previous nano ; Multi-Touch sometimes more gimicky than useful ; No physical playback buttons ; No video-watching and -recording features

Apple iPod Nano 2011 review: Apple iPod Nano 2011

 

Apple iPod Nano 2011

The ; costs less than before, is easier to navigate, and includes more Nike Plus fitness tracking capabilities. It's also still the best clip-on music player money can buy.

Many features have disappeared over the years, including video playback, camcorder, microphone, speaker, games, calendar, contacts, notes, and alarm clock. The touch-screen interface is overkill, requiring more attention than the time-tested click...

The sixth generation of the iPod Nano is the smallest yet, but it comes at the expense of valuable features and practical controls.

Apple iPod nano 16GB: Review

 

There is not much sense in looking anywhere else for a digital music player when price, features and design are taken care of by one particular company. There may come a time when other companies are able to eclipse the offerings that Apple gives, that...

The New iPod nano is a Gem.  Really

 

Beautifully designed and beautiful to wear. Focus on music and photos. Lots of other nice features, not hard to find, but tucked just slightly out of sight: FM radio, clock, stopwatch, alarm, VoiceOver, pedometer, Nike Sport interface, voice memos.

Very small and easy to misplace.

It’s amazing how far we’ve come from the early, clunky iPods with a hard disk and manual controls. This iPad nano is not only a gem, but a full-fledged 21st century, wearable, technological accessory … and necessity.  The 5G nano just didn’t go there,...
