There for the month of November last year, I commented on the possible appearance of LunaTik and TikTok, two accessory projects to be able to turn a previous generation iPod Nano into a whole wristwatch. Subsequently, and coinciding with their sale and the possibility of buying them in the Apple Store, I contacted them to see if they could send us a unit for their test. In particular, we have received a LunaTik, which is the most stylized but more expensive version of the accessory. In this entry, we will see how it is the LunaTik, quality of materials, ease of use and, above all, what feelings it transmits to carry the iPod Nano on the wrist. All that we will see after the jump.
As you can see in the video, the installation is quite simple. But let’s start at the beginning. Just open the box we find the LunaTik, the assembly instructions, and two keys Allen that will allow us to disassemble and mount the aluminum shell where the iPod Nano will be mounted.
As I am of the belief that when all else fails is when you have to read the instructions, swift and fast I take the two keys Allen and, in a matter of seconds, I have managed to separate the two parts that compose it. Of course, make sure you do it on a flat surface and do not lose any of the two screws.
The insertion of the Nano is perfect, without looseness, and this is where we can begin to appreciate the quality and the great design of the two pieces of aluminum. Closing the LunaTik is just as easy as opening it.
The LunaTik conveys a sense of quality in both the hand and the wrist. The materials are of quality and, far from looking like a clock of the “everything to 100” closer, it seems as if the Nano had been from the beginning inside. And that we have tested with a pink Nano. Probably the integration with the gray Nano would have been perfect.
Due to the design of the Nano, we can mount the Nano both with the data connector left and right. This will allow us to use the LunaTik on both the left and right hand, depending on where we want to have the control buttons and the headphone output. It is an excellent detail.
How is the experience of wearing it on the wrist? The truth is that it is quite right, it looks like a lifelong watch, it does not become extremely big, and it is not heavy either. The eighty dollars that cost the LunaTik may seem a rather high price, but once we have tried it and seen the quality of the components, we do not think it is expensive for what it offers. I end the entry by thanking LunaTik for sending us the test unit, and I also thank my partner Pedro Santamaría for bringing the iPod Nano and for serving as a model in the last photo.
