Introduction: IWatchband

About: Engineering Enthusiast

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)

Step 2: Where Am I Supposed to Find That Rope Tie?

Interesting question, and it's answer it's rather simple.

These sturdy nylon-velcro rope ties come with many of Wellingtons's ropes.
They are used to hold the rope package in the rails found on the racks of the store.

I already had a couple of ties laying around, because I bought two packages of rope to tie a provisional tarp on our backyard.

I suggest you to search around a drawer or two, as you may already have one laying around!

If you don't happen to have the luck of having one already, you can buy a rope pack for about 10~ dollars, have the tie and keep to rope for another project. You never know when you're going to need rope!

Here where I live there's a local one that carries them, but you that live in the US you can find these ropes online and at K-mart.

Step 3: Make the Rope Tie Usable.

In order to make the tie useful as a watchband, you have to remove the plastic piece that's held in the middle of it.

You can do this by means of ripping apart the stitches found near the middle of the Tie.

Then slide away the plastic piece, you may put it away.

Step 4: Making It the IWatchband

Tuck in the nylon band into the iPod's clip, It'll fit snuggly.

Step 5: Show Off

Place your newly-made iWatch above your wrist.

Close the hook and loop closure, adjust as you feel comfort.

Wear your newly assembled Gizmo.
