Apple first unveiled the updated iPod shuffle—as well as new versions of its video iPod and iPod nano—at a September company event in San Francisco.

The second-gen iPod shuffle will be available via Apple retail stores, Apple’s Web store, and through authorized resellers within a week, Macworld.co.uk reports.

At half the size and weight of the original iPod shuffle, the 1GB, aluminum-bodied device is the smallest iPod Apple offers. It doesn’t have a screen for viewing content, but it does include a clip for attaching to belts or other pieces of clothing, as well as an increase in battery life to 12 hours, according to Macworld.co.uk.

It will sell for about $79.
