A relative of mine also wanted the watch nano, and they actually found one I haven't had a chance to ask them from where they got it. They actually do where it as a watch.

With the success of the iPod Video, and the opening of the iTunes video store to go alongside it, I'm pretty sure there were millions who were watching movies on a screen that small back then. I know I was, it was a great way to bring my TV shows on the go. Obviously, pretty much every iPod with a screen released since then, now has video playback due to that.

When you're watching a movie on a screen that small, it doesn't really matter. Your eyes adjust to it, and it becomes natural. Think of it as like laying in bed and watching your TV that is across the room on a shelf. It's the same view range on a Nano, except your holding it a few inches away from your face.

I really like the video feature on the Nano. I have probably used it every single day since I got it.

Ebay has them and apple has some refrubs.

I agree the new nano is just weird. I use the old nano as a watch and I have another for running. just clip it on and your good to go.

The Nano Watch is now the Nano Keychain Fob. :D
It's too big to wear as a watch but add a keychain fob case to it and it becomes one of those digital photo keychain thingies.
Something like these:

Don't give up hope. It might make a comeback next year. I remember a patent/design that showed up here that included a camera, with hole in the clip to accommodate. Maybe they just couldn't make it happen this year and so they punted and came up with the new design rather than keep the clip design for a third year. I'm with you, I don't watch videos on a screen that size, but I know people were complaining about the lack of video on the clip nanos. It's hard to make a product that everyone can agree on.

I hope it comes back the nano is not a very good place to watch videos because the screen is to small. I love wearing my nano as a watch and wear it almost everyday.

Apple needs the "iPod Sport". It's the 6th gen clip nano, but this time with bluetooth. For me, that's the perfect iPod since I only use my iPod for the gym.

I already have a 27" iMac, 11.6" MBA, orig iPad, and the ip5 for when I am not training.

I purchased the new iPod nano a few days ago only because Apple added bluetooth and I can't stand working out with wires. Even tucked inside my shirt, the wires were still an issue. The new nano is too big and the lack of a clip sucks. Even though my shorts have a pocket, I still prefer the old design much more. I chose the lesser of two evils.

Now I have 2 6th gen nanos that will likely never get used again. One is still in the box...

If you want to watch video, you can buy a used iPod touch for less than $150. I think the iPod nano and iPod touch overlap too much now. The watch was cool.

They need to make a iPod that is a watch and syncs up with the iPhone. Shows alerts and texts/emails. Like the pebble but not as ugly. They could literally charge whatever they wanted for it and it would sell like crazy. It would be a must have for iPhone users. And I could read my texts and emails while I worked on people's teeth at work(dentistry)

They also didn't have 4" iPod Touches, iPad Minis, iPhones, and iPads back then... it was the only option to watch movies on an apple product on the go. Not the case anymore.

To add that feature to another product costs them not one penny.
So no matter how dubious it is, it's ignorant to not add it every product.

This. I really hope they come up with something like the pebble.

I really think that would be a great idea to the old nano (6th gen) to become a new kind of shuffle. They're almost same size. It could be the new entry model for apple, albeit being more expensive than the shuffle...

Gald the wife got me a Nano when she did. She got me it along with a watch band and now I have somewhat of a collectors item. ;)

I don't know that they'll have the greatest selection, but some gamestops have iPods. I've only come across 2 8gb 6th gen nanos with a handful of other generations and types. But a basic selection is better than none

I actually just recently ordered and revived my Nano 6th Gen off Amazon.com. Ordered a watch band as well - love it! :)

Please tell me where you work so I never have to go to you for dental work.

Amazon or Apple Store (yes, they still have them). Yes, the 6th Generation Nano *has* become an instant classic. A 6G and a watch band, as your wife got for you, might be a great holiday gift for that special someone. Early online shopping - like NOW - is recommended. :)

Looking down at my watch while I'm waiting on the amalgam to mix or curing light to set up composite isn't the end of the world. There's a lot of down time while doing what I do.

You've gotta be kidding me. Wearing an iPod nano as a watch is the dorkiest thing you could possibly do in life. Grow up and buy a real watch.

Being a troll on a Mac forum is the dorkiness thing you could possibly do in life.

Actually as an "iPod" the 7th generation is probably better then the 6th, but I can see your point about the Nano watch. I'm actually considering selling my barely used 6th Generation and buying a 7th since I think it might actually be a little easier to use and I like the idea of having a home button on the device.

You can still purchase the 6th generation Nano on Amazon or eBay. My gf gave me the Nano on my birthday and I wear it as a watch when running. Cute gift. :apple:

They will see the sales decrease, and fix the things. I strongly believe it will return at 8th gen.

Perhaps they will bring back the 6th Gen along side the 7th Gen just like they sell the 5th and 4th Gen iPod Touch together.

I agree with others who say that the 6th Gen should replace the Shuffle. Maybe they will add the lightning connector, drop storage to 4GB and replace the Shuffle with it.

I really liked the 6th Gen. So when I saw what Apple did with the 7th Gen, I immediately went to the Refurb Store and bought a refurbed 6th Gen.

The 7G is easily better than the last one: Battery life, buttons, Bluetooth 4.

I don't even need to turn the screen on to browse folder/playlists and listen to my music.

I personally don't like buttons, I find its easier to search through my huge amounts of music (if I played every song back to back, it would take 2 weeks) using a touchscreen.

Then don't use the buttons; use the touchscreen instead.

Unlikely seeing as this wasn't exactly the case with the Touch. The 4th gen is sold alongside the 5th, true, but it was never taken away for a generation like the 6th gen nano now is. They would have to resurrect a product that would be discontinued for a year.

I agree with others who say that the 6th Gen should replace the Shuffle. Maybe they will add the lightning connector, drop storage to 4GB and replace the Shuffle with it.


Now this I agree with. If you ask me, this was their original intention for the 6th gen nano. It dropped so much (namely video, camera, and form factor), it was hard to see it as the intended successor of the line.

As far as nanos in general - cute, convenient devices, but entirely overpriced. $100 would be a fair selling point in my opinion.
