New iPod Nano watch band is too cool for school

The Hex watch band comes in nine colors and turns your sixth-generation iPod Nano into a wearable wristwatch and MP3 player.

Yes, the iPod Nano is minuscule enough to be turned into a watch, you just need a custom band to encase your sixth-gen Nano to wear it on your wrist and be the coolest dude--or dudette--around.

The Hex isn't the first Nano watch band we've seen, but it is the slickest and it comes in nine different colors for $24.99. As the company's cartoon infographic says, you just pop it in the case, and presto, it's a watch! What also nice is that it provides some protection for your Nano and has some integrated control buttons. Naturally, that $24.99 doesn't include the iPod, and unfortunately, this watch has to be charged quite a bit more frequently than your standard timepiece.

Yes, there's a port for the headphone jack. Hex
