By now, you've decided if you're going to use Apple's iPod nano 6G as a watch. We obviously have our own feelings
on the matter, but those who can't be bothered with actual functionality should definitely be looking in the direction of Frontal Concepts. This Australian outfit has just released its first product, and it's far and away the most sensibly designed iPod nano watch strap
to date. Rather than just looping a band through the device's rear clip, the Infuse strap actually has a simple, one-click locking mechanism to keep your digital timepiece in position. It's also positioned to allow the audio cord to run upwards along the arm, and it's built from polycarbonate plastics and silicone -- plenty tough to withstand the occasional gym visit. Americans can get their pre-order in today for $24.95 (black, white and brown hues are available), with the first shipments expected to head out in around a fortnight. Time's ticking, Santa.
Frontal Concepts Infuse iPod nano wristmount
Frontal Concepts Launches the Infuse Wristlock™ solution for the iPod Nano 6G
Not just your average iPod Nano watchstrap - The Infuse allows users to mount their iPod Nano 6G in a minimalist and ergonomic manner via its unique "Wristlock" mechanism.
29/11/2010 – Frontal Concepts is pleased to introduce the Infuse wristmount, a sophisticated minimalist accessory for Apple's iPod Nano 6G. Infuse's uniquely designed mounting system, the Wristlock™ Mechanism, allows you to easily "snap" your iPod nano in or out of the wrist mount. The Infuse also orientates the iPod nano in an ergonomic fashion such that the earphone wire runs parallel to one's arm such that it will not be a hindrance to movement. Infuse's silicone straps are custom made from high quality material and finished with an anti dust coating. The Infuse has been designed to augment, not to obscure, the iPod nano's clean, modern look.
