Apple iPod Nano 16GB - Green - 6th Generation Review

Apple iPod Nano 16GB

The Apple iPod Nano 16GB is a stylish, compact yet powerful MP3 player which has numerous features to help you make the most of your music and is so tiny it easily fits into a pocket or clips comfortably to a belt.

The iPod Nano features the same touch screen that you can find on iPhones and iPads, except it’s smaller at 1.5”, yet still just as intuitive as its larger cousins. The design of the Nano is sleek and stylish, making it the perfect accessory for music-loving teens or to take to the gym.

It’s anodised body is made from aluminium and comes in seven bright, happy colours, ideal for accessorising with whatever you want. The easy to use navigation system means that you can search for your favourite tunes with just a swipe or a tap and you can even connect the Nano to the 30-pin connector in your car so that you can easily enjoy all of your music wherever you are.

The battery lets you listen to your music for a full 24-hours of continuous play, ideal for parties or long journeys and the internal 16GB storage is ample to make sure that you have a wide diversity of tunes to listen to.

The shuffle function on the Nano has got even better too and you can simply shake the device and it will shuffle to a different song from your library. Genius is even better; this feature allows the Nano to find music that goes well together and compile a playlist especially for you, using songs and artists that complement your music but that you may never have thought of. This makes for an interesting and varied music experience as Genius acts like your very own personal DJ and attempts to find tunes you’ll love and mix them with others in your library.

The iPod Nano is the ideal MP3 player for those who like to keep fit, its compact design coupled with the clip that allows you to attach it to any belt is perfect for running or gym work and you can easily change the music without stopping, thanks to the new touchscreen.

A pedometer is included so that you can keep track of distances and you can even buy the Nike + iPod Sport Kit (separately) which allows you to clip the player to compatible cardio machines so that you can record pace, time and distance as you get carried away with your music.
