Designer Joyce Kang and C.O Design Lab gave the Apple watch a nostalgic trip to its ancestor by designing the new Pod Case which makes the high tech watch look like the sensation iPod of 2003. Although the evergreen the jog-wheel is just an ornamental display to give you a feeling of nostalgia, the music can be controlled by the watch itself. The Apple watch can either be connected to Bluetooth or you can even play music on high-quality built-in speakers.

Having almost the same screen dimension as the iconic iPod, the watch’s body fits right in the silicone made Pod Case making it perfect to bring back the memory from the past with the latest technology of the watch, making navigation through the song easier with all the features of the Apple watch too. The release of the technology will be announced at The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference on 22nd June and the makers are expecting a cheerful reaction from everyone.
