GizMac offers Titan Gear attachments for 2G iPod nano

GizMac has announced its Titan Gear attachments for second-generation iPod nanos. The Titan Gear package ($25) includes a carabiner clip, armband, belt clip and lanyard for the new nano. “Apple developed colorful and strong aluminum bodies for the second generation nano,” says the company. “So GizMac engineered a way to use our special attachments to securely and fashionably carry the new nano several different ways while showing it off at the same time.”

Yeah great - after delaying shipments of pre-ordered Nano cases for 6 months, and then apparantly dropping the Video case altogether, now they start announcing accessories?

When will we see a review of the much delayed, much advertised Nano case in the first place?  LONG overdue.

Yes, I’d welcome an iLounge evaluative review of the first Gizmac products: they look good. Are they as robust, versatile and protective as the GizMac site suggests? What sort of access to the dock is there?

A company finally came out with a belt clip for 2g nano!  Definitely buying this if it is as durable as the belt clip that came with the mini.

I’m glad someone is finally making an armband and belt clip like the iPod mini’s had.

As someone who ordered* GizMac’s aluminum case for the first-gen Nano shortly after its initial announcement, let’s just say I wouldn’t hold my breath on this thing actually shipping anytime soon.


*It still hasn’t shipped after I was told “3-4 weeks” six weeks ago. (Full disclosure: I ordered the light blue, which is now listed as temporarily out of stock—that wasn’t the case when I placed my order; I also got a “customer loyalty discount” of $10 for being patient, but after reviewing my order just now it shows up in my order history listed at full price.)

In desperation for a belt clip for my 2G Nano, I went ahead and ordered one of these despite the bad reputation.  It showed up today, less than 1 weeks after I placed the order.  Results are a mixed bag.  The good news is it grips the Nano firmly.  The upper arm strap is very high quality and long enough for a fairly well built guy.  The lanyard is also high quality.  The -eh- side is it looks a little clunky and is hard to take off once you put it on.  The downside is the belt clip looks a little puny.  I’m a bit worried about it breaking.  Wish I had two of them so I could test one to failure and see what it actualy takes to break it.  Finally, the hanging loops are very puny and will have to be replaced.  I wouldn’t hang a paperclip from the provided rings.  On balance it is overpriced and under developed.  But at least it is available.

Steve call GizMac they sent me new hanging loop (keychain rings) without me asking.  I’m using the belt clip pretty much exclusivly and its seem pretty strong to me.  Time will tell though.  I gave my sister the lanyard.

Ooops sorry.  I didn’t see you had already posted this in the forum section.

“New Rings Improve the Product
This is an addition to my above review of the Gizmac belt clip. Today in the mail I recieved a nice letter along with a couple of new, much sturdier, wire rings for the lanyard and carabiner attachments. With my off hand pinky finger I casually flicked the old rings from their attachment points (yes, they are that wimpy) then used tools and a mild expletive to install the new, appropriately sturdy rings. Full credit to Gizmac for fixing a fixable problem. I still have some nits. The carabiner attachment is set up such that, when hanging from a belt loop, the ipod hangs 90 degrees from flat against my hip, instead of flat against my hip. The Lanyard on the other hand has the appropriate swivel clip and hence no such problem. It still required tools, or steel fingernails, to switch from between attachments. My opinion of Gizmac just went up a notch.

As an aside, Gizmac mailed the letter using a way-cool Green Lantern 39 cent stamp.”
