In the last few months we’ve seen more and more people repurpose their iPad Nano as a watch. This is in large part due to the influx of iPad Nano watch wrist bands that have flooded the market. Adding to the mix of choices is one young designer out of Australia named Edwin Conan. From what we understand he has designed and built the first iPad Nano pocket watch case, called the iPocketwatch.
Although installation of the Nano isn’t detailed, it looks like you’ll need to unscrew 4 small hex screws. A small caveat for anyone that regularly likes to use the Nano without a case, such as those that run. But on the flip side the Nano will be secure, minimizing any chance that it might get lost while swung around from its 30cm included chain. The casing is crafted from from aircraft grade aluminum and comes in a silver or black finish, though the latter will cost you a few extra ducats. While all the ports (headphone jack, 30-pin dock and volume keys) and clip will remain available , the touch controls that appear in the corner of the Nano won’t be reachable due to the casing, though you might be able to squeeze in a pinkie if you’ve got sticks for fingers. However, that most certainly won’t possible if you attach the rounded version. Yes, there are two facades included in the deal; a square one and rounded one.
To score the iPocketWatch you’ll need to drop $40 at a site called Pozible, which we assume is the Australian version of Kickstarter.
