Elago is known for selling Apple Watch stands that house Apple's wearable device inside cute replicas of older tech, like a classic Macintosh or an original Nintendo Game Boy. The company is back this week with its latest product, the W6 Stand, which is designed to look like an iPod Classic.

The W6 Stand works with all Apple Watch models and is compatible with Nightstand Mode. The accessory is made of a scratch-free silicone that protects the Apple Watch when it's sitting inside the stand. To use it, users simply place the Apple Watch's inductive charging puck into the stand's cutout and slide their Apple Watch into the opening for the iPod's "display."

Elago is selling the W6 Stand in White and Black on its own website and on Amazon. The accessory is cheaper on Amazon, where it's priced at $12.99 for the white color option, while on Elago's website it's running for $14.99 for both colors.

Besides the previous W3 Stand for Apple Watch, Elago has also released the M4 Stand for iPhone, which turned an iPhone 7, 6s, or 6 into a classic Mac.

I sincerely miss iPods

Me too man.

I had hopes they would surprise us with a new iPod this year... So disappointed with the “new” iPod touch... At this point they have the technology to make something really awesome, like the final iPod that everyone would love to buy and collect.

iPods were the first Apple products I ever owned.

There’s literally no reason to invest in r&d for a product that’s merely going to be an iteration of an iPhone with less features.

It’s also tech and flash memory so bifl it is not. The only reason we probably have the most recent iPod is because they had spare parts and thought of a way to get them out of the warehouses.

I would love to be able to dock my Apple Watch in a bluetooth keyboard so I can get real work done on-the-go. Apple Watch has a lot of untapped potential as a content creation device.

As has been said many times, in many parts of this nation: I've owned an iPod. That, sir, is no iPod.

:D

Strictly in terms of navigating a music library and listening to music, I thought the click wheel was far superior to how it’s handled on the iPhone (or iPod touch) interface.

Obviously that’s not a practical design for a multipurpose device... but I still sorta miss it.

Looks like a good mod.
