  • iPod Nano Wristwatch Coming to Apple Stores This Week



    Remember last year when Scot Wilson debut his take on the iPod Nano wristwatch?

    Remember when Wilson couldn't secure a manufacturer for the design, leaving the concept in limbo?

    Remember how he then decided to post his creation on Kickstarter.com to raise funding, and in a month raised nearly $1,000,000 from 13,500 backers?

    Yea, neither do I, but Wilson's beautiful creations will be sold in Apple Retail Stores across the country this week.

    Wilson with no where to turn, proved every manufacturer wrong.

    "A lot of people just donít have the instincts to know whether itís going to sell, so they just donít want to gamble. But to see it globally accepted across 50 countries, thatís not much of a risk.I bounced it off of different contacts at different retail channels, and they all decided that it needed to be in that 34.95 to 35.95 sweet spot." - Wilson
    When posting on Kickstarter companies or individuals usually create tiered incentives based on how much is donated. Wilson's incentives worked. They lured prospective donators by making a $25 pledge earn them a TikTok watch kit (MSRP $39.95) and $50 scored you a metallic LunaTik (MSRP $79.95).

    The discounted prices proved successful. In fact it proved successful for Apple as well. In a survey sent out to his backers 76% of them bought a Nano just because of the watchband. Wilson sold 21,120 units through Kickstarter and another 20,000 through LunaTik.com.

    That's when Apple caught on. The LunaTik silver and red will be available in Apple Stores for $79.95 and the TikTok black and white will be available for $39.95.



    I never thought I'd buy an iPod nano. Till now.

      At least I now have a use for mine. I bought it and it's just been sitting in a drawer cause I just don't like the design. I need a click wheel and something to hold onto. The lunatic white band with my nano would be sweet. Unfortunately they're out of them

      I wanted a watch holder for that nano before I even knew any existed. I ONLY would use it for working out at the gym, and from what I hear the nano has no Bluetooth so am I supposed to wear a watch with a wire going to my head?

      this seems like a good idea to give to some one as a gift, alongside a ipod nano. since i didnt get anything for my mom on mothers day i guess ill buy her one of these. but then again i got her an iphone 4 back when it came out, so she might not want it.
