How to Turn Your IPod Nano (6th Generation) Into a IWatch




Introduction: How to Turn Your IPod Nano (6th Generation) Into a IWatch

This is a fairly simple instructable showing how to make a iWatch with an iPod nano 6th Generation. 
I just got a 6th Generation iPod nano and realized: the clip would work on a watch strap, making an iWatch! So, I went on with this brilliant plan, and it works fantastically!


What you need

1. An iPod Nano (6th Generation)
2. A watch strap (With clasps)
3. String (I used embroidery thread)
Thats all!

Step 1: String It on Up!

Step 1- 2 Lines
Take the string and loop it around the clasps forming two parallel vertical lines. Do that twice-3 times.
Step 2- X's
Proceed to form an X by criss-crossing the string from the left of the bottom clasp to the right of the top, then, the left of the top to the right of the bottom. Do this twice also.
Step 3- Repeat
Repeat steps 1, 2 and then 1 again.

It should end up looking like the picture below.

Step 2: Attach the Nano.

Simply clip the nano behind the string, so all of the string lies between the clip and the main body.

Step 3: All Done!

There you have it! Your very own iWatch!
Post pictures of your iWatch if you decide to make one yourself, but don't rock too hard, you might hurt yourself! XP

Thanks for reading!

***NOTE If you click the Clock icon, then it functions as an actual watch. (So you wear it all non-challant in places where you shouldn't :P)
