iPod Nano Watch: Steve Jobs Floats Wristwatch Idea (POLL, PHOTOS)

First Posted: 09/01/10 03:05 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 06:30 PM ET

Just what can the new iPod Nano do?

Besides a series of new features and sleek new design, it can also serve as a watch, Steve Jobs joked at Wednesday's Apple event introducing the newest iPods.

"One of the members of our Board of Directors is going to use it as a watch," Jobs said.

And it may not be such a far-fetched idea with the tiny new design, a wristband and the Nano's clock functionality.

Twitter exploded at the suggestion of an iPod Nano watch, and ZDNet agrees it's the "perfect geek watch." A sampling of tweets below:

@JoshwaHudson: New iPod nano has a clock app and you can buy a wrist strap = apple watch.
@GabrielBridger: Oh hello iPod Nano watch.
@lewisfielder: Buying the ipod nano, purely to use for a watch!
@Chetterb: I would totally wear the iPod nano as a watch, first touchscreen watch, yes sir!
@pekpongpaet: i think i am going to use the new ipod nano as a watch

Quick Poll

If you had the new iPod Nano, would you wear it as a watch?

Yes, love the idea!

Never, totally not cool.

Not sure.
