Up until Apple officially unveils a wearable, this little beauty is a close as any of us have ever gotten to an Apple smartwatch. The 6th generation iPod nano is still a pretty impressive little device, and with the ability to view photos, track calories burned, count your steps, play music and record voice memos, it's actually more feature-packed than many devices flying under the smartwatch banner.

If (or when) Apple pulls the curtain back on the iWatch, the device it most closely resembles probably won't be something Samsung, Motorola or LG has recently launch, but instead the tiny little media device it introduced way back in 2010. Ahead of its time? Perhaps. Now it's time for round two.
