One -Tap Wonders
Multi-Touch and music. The amazing Genius. A built-in FM radio. Smart ways to stay fit. Everything about the new iPod nano is a huge hit.

Your greatest hits. And taps. And swipes
The best things in life have a soundtrack, and that's where iPod nano shines. The Multi-Touch display lets you experience your music in a new way. Tap to play anything you want to hear. Swipe the Home screen to browse your music by songs, albums, artists, playlists, genres or composers. You can even rearrange the icons on your Home screen so your music is organised just how you like.

Clip on some tunes
With the new built-in clip, you can walk, run, ride or dance with your favourite songs on your sleeve (or pocket, jacket or bag). The album art of the song you're listening to fits perfectly on the display.

Play all day. And all night
The built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 24 hours of non-stop music. So when you clip on an 8GB or 16GB iPod nano, you'll have plenty of tunes to make it through your commute, your workout and beyond.

Shake it up
Now for something completely random. Give iPod nano a shake and it shuffles to a different song in your music library. Shake to Shuffle is perfect for when you're not in any particular music mood. You never know what you're going to hear, and you'll always be pleasantly surprised.

Genius. The music mixmaster
Your own personal DJ.
Say you're listening to a song you love and you want to stay in the groove. Just tap Genius. It finds other songs on your iPod nano that go great together and makes a Genius playlist for you. For more song combinations you wouldn't have thought of yourself, create Genius Mixes in iTunes and sync the ones you like to your iPod nano. Then tap the Genius Mixes icon and rediscover songs you haven't heard in a while - or find music you forgot you even had.

FM radio. Touch that dial
Radio nano.
Ride the airwaves on iPod nano. The FM tuner shows the artist, song or programme you're listening to. Just tap to see the radio controls, flick the radio dial to change stations and tap to set your favourites.

Live Pause
If you need to take a break from listening, don't miss a minute of radio time with Live Pause. Tap to pause a song or show, then tap again to continue where you left off. You can rewind as far back as 15 minutes or fast-forward to catch up to the live broadcast.

Stay fit with every step
iPod nano doubles as a pedometer, which makes it the ideal exercise partner. It keeps track of your steps and helps you meet your fitness goals. Just clip it on and walk on. You can create a daily step goal and check your progress when you upload all your data to the Nike+ website.

Rock your workout
With the Nike + iPod Sport Kit (sold separately), iPod nano keeps you motivated from warm-up to cool-down on your run or in the gym. Lace up a pair of Nike+ running shoes and clip on your iPod nano. You'll watch the miles unfold and hear real-time voice feedback along with your favourite songs. In the gym, connect iPod nano to a Nike + iPod-compatible cardio machine. It records your pace, time and distance as you work out and rock out.

iTunes. For your iPod-playing pleasure
Everything you need to be entertained.
iTunes is the best way to fill your iPod nano with the latest music, podcasts, audiobooks and more. It's also the best way to browse and organise the ever-expanding digital media collection on your Mac or PC. Everything you buy on the iTunes Store - and any music from CDs you import - appears in your iTunes library. You can make your own playlists, create Genius playlists, choose Genius Mixes and sync it all to your iPod nano.

 Good for basic sports and audio uses. At a price...

As a music player, this isn't bad. The touch screen controls are easy to navigate and iTunes works in the usual way for adding music or playlists. The outer is nicely made in brushed aluminum, with an integrated belt clip. For on-the-go usage the touch screen interface is very easy indeed.

However, the FM radio is a damp squib in the rural area where I live and work: it's technically there, but the reception is so poor is might as well not be.

One of the features of this generation of iPods is that it CAN also double as a watch - but this IMO is not one of the better features. The iPod is generally so battery hungry that it's suboptimal as a watch, and although it's small as an iPod as a watch face it's HUGE and cumbersome...

Furthermore wristwatch implementations are very dependent on third party support. To date available watch conversion wristbands generally seem to be unisex and erring on the larger side.

The sports features are a good thing - but also require additional support: in the form of a Nike plus sensor and either Nike plus shoes or a third party converter.

Nearly 2 years after the release of this style of nano the range of cases available is still very limited - most seen to consist of basic frames that wrap around the aluminium housing, but do nothing to protect the screen. The best I've been able to do is a film-style screen protector.

It all seems to add up to a nice enough (though pricey) music player which is capable of a good bit more if you're willing to pay for the added features.

I bought this thinking it would be the best model for workout usage - but don't find it a significant improvement on previous generations of Nano. As a day-to-day player I regret the absence of video features, the continuing need for third-party support and the small interface. It's nice enough but probably not the iPod I'd be aiming to buy next time.
