When Apple announced new iPod music players a few weeks ago, many people asked why anyone would need iPods when smartphones can play music and more.There are times a stand-alone device such as an iPod works better than a jack-of-all-trades like a smartphone.The iPod Nano is much easier to carry, and all the music and podcasts on it doesn't eat up space on my phone.The Nano also has an FM receiver and fitness-tracking capabilities – though a stand-alone fitness device is better for that.I've also used my phone and the Nano to track my workouts.The Apple Watch is quite accurate when you have an iPhone with you, as it borrows the phone's GPS.WHEN PHONES ARE BETTERNavigation is one area where a phone will do just as well – perhaps even better – than a stand-alone GPS device in a car.A stand-alone GPS device can be mounted on the windshield and won't drain your phone's battery, but you can counter that with a mounting accessory for your phone and a charger that plugs into the car's cigarette lighter.
