Make sure to check out the full video. You will love why we designed the Ultimate One the way we did. Ergonomics and Real Usability (Ear Buds, Nike+, D670 bluetooth... and not effect your wrist movement). ....................................................................................................................................... Thank you very much for taking the time to visit our KICKSTARTER project. We are very excited about this opportunity and would love to have your help. - Tim & Debbie INSPIRED From the minute Steve Jobs announced the new iPod nano we began working on how we could really take it to another level. We wanted to provide a premium styled and functional accessory for the nano. Needless to say we have been designing, prototyping, testing, our butts off.

Thus the Ultimate One was born. It enables some of the real cool usability features of the Apple (6th generation) iPod nano to shine. Yea, it makes an awesome watch but it is much more.

We need your help because manufacturing is expensive. We narrowed down potential manufactures and are ready to go. KICKSTARTER provides us an avenue to make the project a reality. However, it can't be done without your help. By pledging at least twenty five dollars you essentially are pre-ordering the Ultimate One (US orders are shipped at no additional pledge amount - outside the US please see pledge details).

Using multiple prototypes, prototype testers and some market research (can you tell we do some design/engineering for a living)...

We focused on achieving: √ Thin profile (body & strap). √ Great comfort (vented where possible). √ Soft Feel. √ Sheltering the nano and it's clip from skin contact (unless, of course, you use it's awesome touch screen). √ Function (full control and connector access).

For the function we targeted a number of things: √ Easy access to all controls (wake/sleep & volume). √ Secure fit for the nano. We did some really cool stuff here but want to hold off a bit to explain. It is a competitive advantage that we don't want to show just yet. √ Full and easy access to the connections (30pin & headphone jack). √ Provide the ability to use adapters like the Nike + iPod or most mini-bluetooth (for things like: car audio, wireless headsets...). √ Orient the nano so it does not interfere with your wrist movement. NOTE: We did a bunch of testing in this area. We found that if the connectors ran parallel with the arm there was a potential for interference with your movement or worse breakage of the connector (bluetooth and/or headset).

In our last round of prototype testing we received some great feedback from one of our testers (a runner). He said, "Terrific job! The thin styling is impressive and the function (fit, usability - controls and connector) is something most vendors miss. People are going to love it." Thank you for your support, -Tim & Debbie

P.S. Our goal, with your help, is to begin shipping sometime in January. Great for some after Christmas gift packages. Retail target price is not yet set but we expect it to go on sale in the $25-30 range.
