New iPod Nano watch is a big improvement over the first one

The first iPod Nano watch was little more than a band that slipped through the Nano's pocket clip. This new one works much better, with a custom fitted holder that's also designed to protect the Nano from knocks and scratches.

The silicone Hex strap comes in nine groovy colors, and has a square compartment that the entire Nano can slip into. There's even a hole for the headphone jack, so you can still listen to your tunes while wearing it.

The Hex iPod Nano watch band is available now for about $25.
