Apple and Nike have teamed up for the Apple Watch Nike+, designed as the “ultimate tool for anyone who runs.” It pairs xclusive Nike Sport Bands with the Apple Watch Series 2, which features GPS, a two-times-brighter display, water resistance 50 meters, a dual-core processor and watchOS 3.
Apple Watch Nike+ also includes exclusive Siri commands and iconic Nike watch faces along with deep integration with the new Nike+ Run Club app for motivation to go for a run, coaching plans that adapt to your unique schedule and progress, and guidance from the world’s best coaches and athletes.
Apple Watch Nike+, like all Apple Watch Series 2 models, features built-in GPS to track pace, distance and route, so users can run without an iPhone. With the brightest display Apple has ever made, metrics are easy to read, no matter the sun’s glare, and if users decide to take a post-run dip in the pool, Apple Watch Nike+ is water resistant 50 meters, for swimming.
The Nike Sport band is crafted from the same strong, flexible fluoroelastomer as the original Apple Watch Sport Band, but now it’s perforated for even better ventilation and sweat management. The lightweight band is available in four two-tone color combinations unique to the collection. Apple Watch Nike+ features two exclusive watch faces inspired by Nike’s iconic style that can be easily personalized with apps like Activity Rings, Heart Rate, Stopwatch and Weather, helping runners stay informed at a glance.
Apple Watch Nike+ takes advantage of the capabilities of Apple Watch Series 2 and the Nike+ Run Club app. The app experience is seamlessly built into Apple Watch Nike+ and accessed right from the watch face, so users can get going with a quick tap.
The Nike+ Run Club app offers daily motivation through smart run reminders, challenges from friends and even alerts informing when the weather is right to get outside. Training data, including pace, distance and heart rate are available at a glance, and through shared run summaries, the app promotes friendly competition, even allowing users to send fist bumps to each other right from the wrist.
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 color combinations including Black/Volt, Black/Cool Gray, Flat Silver/White and Flat Silver/Volt.
