Using your iPod Nano as a watch is catching on. And why not? You can change the face of the watch at will and you can match your watch band to your mood with ease. Incase has entered this market with the Flex Wristband.
We purchased this to add some sport to the Nano. While the band looks fantastic, we quickly realized that it’s made for people with smaller wrists.
This doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to use it but it’s certainly not as comfortable as the Hex line of metal watch bands that can be adjusted.
One other draw back is how the Nano sits in the band. With other bands, the Nano’s clip is utilized. This means that in every day use it’s rather hard to lose the Nano from the band. The Incase Flex uses a pressure design (you ‘pop’ in the Nano). This works well for light usage but a good bump on a wall when moving quickly or the right tug on the headphones could dislodge it. Nanos are light and durable but we’d rather not dropskip them too often.
As for looks, it’s really not bad. Even with the chance of losing the Nano we’d wear this band more often if it were only slightly looser.
