At today’s iPhone media event Apple announced updates and a price reduction to the iPod nano. The new version of the Cupertino company’s smallest touch-screen device now has an improved interface featuring bigger icons – which should make it easier to use, 16 new clock faces for those who wear it as a watch, and built-in Nike+ functionality for tracking walks and runs.

From Apple’s press release:

“iPod nano now features larger icons for even easier navigation of its intuitive Multi-Touch™ user interface, and you can choose from 16 new digital clock faces, ranging from classic analog looks to your favorite Disney characters including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. iPod nano now tracks your runs and walks right out of the box with no accessory required, making it even easier to get your fitness program up and running.”

The 8GB nano is priced at £115 ($129) and the 16GB is available for £129 ($149) – the previous generation models were £129 ($149) and £159 ($179), respectively. Both capacities come in seven different colours: blue, green, graphite, orange, pink, silver and (PRODUCT) RED, and are available to order today.
