Any tiathletes wondering if they can use their Nano to help them keep their end up over race distance? You can, we recommend the Top Gun soundtrack, and here’s how:

The swim

Woah, here’s news! Swimming with a Nano? It’s possible with the help of H20 Audio who has just updated the iPod Mini waterproof case to take the Nano.

You’ll need the waterproof headphones - an extra $40 - but then you’re good for audio-assisted aqua larks. Don’t dive in too enthusiastically, though, as the case is only good for 3m (10ft).

The cycle

There are no pockets in our lycra bodysuit, so to bike and Nano we need this natty handlebar mount. It fits bars between 22mm and 26mm in diameter: nearly all of them.

Make sure your headphone cord isn’t long enough to get caught in the spokes and you’re good to go. (Oh, a saftey disclaimer: cycling, music and traffic don’t mix.)

The run

Hang on, you’re thinking. There must be more svelte, athletic armband cases for running with a Nano? Yes, but our reasons for choosing this one are twofold. Firstly, the psychological edge: other triathletes are using kevlar laces to reduce weight; our luxury case will fool them into thinking we’re finding the whole thing effortless. Secondly, we love the smell of sheepskin.
