Today, Apple and Nike introduced their brand spanking new lovechild, the Apple Watch Nike+, to the world. The Apple Watch Nike+ is the ultimate tool for anyone who runs, with exclusive Nike Sport Bands made just for the new Apple Watch Series 2. The new watches now feature useful GPS, a two-times-brighter display, water resistance up to 50 metres, a new dual-core processor and watchOS 3. The Apple Watch Nike+ will also include exclusive Siri commands and iconic Nike watch faces as well as a deep integration with the new Nike+ Run Club app. If you like to run, then you will probably like this.
“We know runners — and we know many are looking for a device that gives them an easy, fun way to start running,” said Trevor Edwards, president of the Nike Brand. “The market is full of complex, hard-to-read devices that focus on your data. This focuses on your life. It’s a powerful device with a simple solution — your perfect running partner.”
The Nike Sport band is crafted from the same strong, flexible fluoroelastomer as the original Apple Watch Sport Band, but now features perforation for better ventilation and sweat management. The lightweight band is available in four vibrant, two-tone colour combinations that are unique to the collection. Apple Watch Nike+ features two exclusive watch faces inspired by Nike’s iconic style that can be easily personalized with useful apps like Activity Rings, Heart Rate, Stopwatch and Weather, helping runners stay informed at a glance.
The Apple Watch Nike+ will be available in two different aluminum case sizes, 38 mm and 42 mm and pairs with four exclusive Nike Sport Band colour combinations including Black/Volt, Black/Cool Grey, Flat Silver/White and Flat Silver/Volt. The Apple Watch Nike+ will be available in 38 mm at $489 (CAD) and in 42 mm at $529 (CAD) from Apple.ca, Nike.com, Apple Stores, select Nike retail stores, select Apple Authorized Resellers and select speciality stores and department stores.
