Macworld 2007: Wear your iPod nano on your wrist with Tune Belt's Open View Armband

Gadgets, Macworld 2007, MP3 players


Tune Belt’s products aren’t new but they have evolved with the iPod range, allowing you to wear pretty much any of them in full view on your wrist. Ideal for workouts, and for mugging invitations.

They offer a wristband carrier and a belt case for the iPod nano, plus an armband for the shuffle.

For both nano carriers, the nano can be read and operated through the clear, protective mylar window, and can be inserted either way for use on either wrist. It’s protected against bumps, scratches, elements, and sweat, and stays secure thanks to the “Plush Velcro” bands. Mind you, I quite like blood circulating to my hands…

Richard Wagner, company president, gave his reasons why an armband for the shuffle is a good thing (other than to make his company money, of course). It comes down to a cord control management flap that keeps the cord safe when working out (you that is, not the cord), damage control, and clip control. So, it’s all about the control.

The nano wristband will retail for $16.95, with the nano belt case and shuffle wristband coming in at $14.95.
