Today, Griffin unveiled the Slap for iPod nano (6th Gen), a wrist-like accessory capable of transforming your iPod nano into an uber-chic watch.
“Anyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s remembers the slap bracelet,” said Melissa Lapsley, head of User Research at Griffin. “Fashion trends are cyclical, as seen by the return of New Wave fashion and new wristwatch trends. Slap for iPod nano is an opportunity to take something nostalgic and do something fun and unique with it.”
Griffin’s Slap case crosses a wristwatch and a silicone skin to keep your iPod nano close at hand. Slap’s flexible, spring-steel band is also wrapped in soft silicone.
Snap Slap open, then snap Slap shut around your wrist; it comfortably self-adjusts to your exact size. Your iPod is surrounded by a frame of thick silicone that guards against bumps and jolts. Slap protects the dock connector and volume controls, but leaves the headphone port open so you can plug in and listen any time. And speaking of time, you can use your Slap-enclosed iPod nano as a wristwatch; just press the Sleep/Wake button through the frame to check the time or control iTunes.
Slap is available in the following colors: Red, Purple, Blue, Green, Black, Orange, Yellow, and Pink. Retailing at $24.99, it will soon be available for the 2010 holiday season at major retailers everywhere.
