The new iPod nano will be easier to use as a watch, Apple Senior Vice President of Worldwide Product Marketing Phil Schiller revealed at the company’s press event Tuesday.
Users will be able to choose from 16 different clock faces (and yes, one of them is Mickey Mouse).
The iPod nano will also be easy to use as a fitness watch that tracks walks and runs. Users can see the time, pace and distance of their runs, calories burned and the number of steps walked. No additional sensors or devices are needed.
“Right out of the box,” Schiller said, “you can go on a walk or a run, without adding sensors or devices.”

The new iPod nano, which is available in seven colors, will cost $129 for the 8GB version and $149 for the 16GB version. This is slightly less expensive than the previous version, which sold for $149 and $179 respectively.
