Archived - iPod nano (6th generation): Controlling iPod nano during a workout
You can use your iPod nano (6th generation) button controls to pause and resume your workout, change songs, hear spoken feedback, or switch to a PowerSong for extra motivation. If you use Apple headphones with a remote, you can control your workout with the remote.
The most efficient way to control your workout is to set iPod nano to pause and resume your workout when you double-click the Sleep/Wake button. For example, if you’re stopped at a traffic light, double-click the Sleep/Wake button to pause, then double-click to resume after the light turns green. Or, if you’re running a marathon and arrive at the finish line, a quick double-click pauses the workout so you can catch your breath before turning the screen on and ending your workout.
To set the Sleep/Wake button to pause a workout
- On the Home screen, tap Settings:
- Tap Music, and then tap Sleep/Wake Button.
- Tap to turn it on.
- Select the option to Play/Pause.
