TinyPod turns your Apple Watch into an iPod-like mini phone

TinyPod for Apple Watch

The latest Apple Watch models are more powerful than before. You can even consider them powerful little computers. And while they are meant to for your wrist, you can use them in other ways. At least, that’s what TinyPod believes. It puts the smartwatch into a case that looks pretty much like a mini iPod.

You even have a click wheel on the front, which can be used to control the apps and navigate through the UI. Of course, with TinyPod, you get something that’s more capable than iPods. The latest Apple Watch models are basically a smaller version of your iPhone. You can make calls with them, listen to music, send texts, and do a lot of things that you usually do with your phone.

Don’t Confuse TinyPod with a Protective Chassis for Your Apple Watch, Though

While it may seem like it, the TinyPod is not a protective chassis for your Apple Watch. Instead, it transforms your smartwatch into something that you might even replace your iPhone with. Well, this is coming from the company, as the goes with the motto “Phone away from phone.”

With this, TinyPod basically means that you get most of the phone functionality without needing an actual phone. Of course, it doesn’t take the phone companion element from the Apple Watch. It doesn’t miraculously convert your smartwatch into a phone. Instead, you get something that’s more than a regular smartwatch but is less distracting than your phone.

The TinyPod has yet to hit the market, though. But the proper launch isn’t far from now, as the company has just teased the launch timeline being this summer. It should work with all the recently released Apple Watch models, and it should be affordable. Overall, it’s an interesting idea, and I am very much interested in learning more about it when it launches. Check out the promotional video embedded below to see how the accessory looks and functions.
