I came back!

This time to show you how to assemble a basic, and mostly free Wristband for the Newest iPod nano, so you can make the legendary iWatch.

It's an easy 5 minute project, and you may already have everything that's needed.

So, Let's go ahead!

31/10/10: Featured today! Thanks everyone!

Step 1: What's needed?

This project consists in three things. 

One 6th Generation iPod nano
(your storage and  color of choice)

A Cutting instrument of some sort
(A knife, a multi-tool, X-acto, box cutter, etc~)

And a nylon rope tie
(More info on next step)

or if you don't live in Poland you could always just buy a watch band wherever jewelry is sold.
very nice
turn your caps off
sorry but i wanted every one to know
if it does get wet, put it in rice for 1 - 2 days
Most kids today are not used to watches at all, so they will not be used to water proof watches ethier. <br> <br>P.S. It is great but you cant listen and wear it ar the same time
yeah you can run the head phone up your sleeve or jacket and they will pop out on the side of your ear
There was this time about 30-40 years ago when everybody was wearing watches and washing hands but not one of the watches was actually waterproof... We've grown accustomed to things being waterproof so much that tiger has a valid point tho I do not agree with the alarming emergency with which he all-caps presented it. <br><br>However valid the point, most people who wear custom made jewelry / watches are aware of their water resistance levels and take care not to wash their hands with the pieces still strapped to their wrists.
your just like a constant downer arnt ya.. and most ipods are splash proof but you raise a very good point <br>
You actually gave me a good idea! thanks!
what is it
I will make a waterproof case for teh iPod with an innertube. <br>Problem solved + chance to win a contest
Most people are smart enough to notice the Ipod on their hands.
Normally people try to avoid washing their watch.
yer this guy on tested.com was testing the ipod and forgot about it on his wrist and got water in the usb connecter
Just because he is stupid doesn't mean we all are.
Or, you could make a fancy rubber case for it out of something like surgu and just put a clear plastic window in it where the screen is :)
I actually slide the iPod back into my arm when I wash my hands
Won't you have to recharge everyday, since it almost always on wen u check for time
you can set it to be able to see the watch when you push the SLEEP/WAKE button
Just because something can be done doesn't neccesarily mean it should be done. Waterproofing a wristwatch converted iPod is not neccesary. Take it off.
i now see a reason for buying the ipod nano
Really nice!!
y'now you can't just leave the ipod nano on all the time because it would run out of power. *cough*design fault *cough*
Good.Altho as soon as apple relesed this nano belkin made a rist band like that.Try making one with a waterproof case that you slip the nano into.
lol theres already something like that T_T http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/watches/e68f/
a fancy way to be robed :)
You have the new ipod nano sweeet!!!!!!!!!!!! nice job!!!!
Nice Instructable, simple build but the nice documentation makes it brilliant!
Thanks! I did my best!
Looks like it too!
And you really did well!
My favourite online store, Deal Extreme sell a watch strap just for this. <br>http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.47265 <br> <br>Not sure if it works out to be cheaper, but it's a great idea in the first place! <br>Nice writeup.
DX for the win!
I was totally thinking of this when it first came out! great minds think alike! My idea involved a snap-in case however.
Very nice! Simple and fun!(Along with having a new watch that can do everything an IPod can!)
Not to mention all those looks you will be stealing everytime they see your watch!
I have a better idea- Why not take a leather strap, put a rung at each end, and connect both rungs to the clip? One would slide to the hinge side, the other would go on where the clip detaches from the nano.
It is indeed a good idea! but this time I was looking for a rather quick'n'dirty watch band, maybe you should make an instructable about it!
I don't have the new iPod nano, nor do I plan on getting it. It is a downgrade over the last one in my opinion, as you can't watch videos, you can't record videos, and I'm sure there are a few other features that it lost as well.<br><br>If I ever get a new iPod nano (I currently have a 3rd gen nano), It will be a 5th gen from Amazon.com.
But is it waterproof? :-)<br><br>K.
Unfortunately, Apple did not made the newest iPod nano waterproof...<br><br>...but as a matter of fact, the wristband is
nice , lol i just thought of apples next new thing &quot;The new apple ipad! This version is 6.3 times faster,5.2 times lighter,lasts 12.1 times longer, and now you can use it underwater!&quot;
