Apple has already thrown a great deal of information about Apple Watch Series 2 when it was initially announced on September 7, but the company wasn’t exactly forthcoming with all of the notes, specifically when talking about the special edition Nike+ version.
As Apple has teamed up with Nike to create the running-focused Apple Watch Nike+ edition, the specification of the hardware we know now, as well as the price and the fact that it’s a custom version of the Series 2 model made in collaboration with Nike. We have today the final piece of the puzzle with Apple updating the Nike+ Apple Watch Series 2 page to show that it will be available later this month on October 28th.
The new Nike+ edition of Apple Watch Series 2 is perfect for runners, with built-in GPS, carrying a flexible band and all the great features. Interested ones buying Apple Watch Series 2 may have purposely stayed away from a purchase as part of a strategic plan to bring the exclusive edition Nike+ version into their lives. But the company could have involved playing the long game if it hadn’t made this timely update to reflect the availability of the Watch.
However, the Nike+ variant is just a Apple Watch Series 2 with an Aluminum case in Space Gray or Silver, but it doesn’t come with an essence that are unique to this particular piece and will likely appeal to the health & fitness conscious individual who like a genuine approach. From the pure aesthetics point of view, the Apple Watch Nike+ offer four different color combinations of case and band, with differentiating from the standard model.
Looking at Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black/Volt Nike Sport Band, Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black/Cool Gray Nike Sport Band, Silver Aluminum Case with Flat Silver/Volt Nike Sport Band, and Silver Aluminum Case with Flat Silver/White Nike Sport Band.
Ships with the Nike+ version band is still a fluoroelastomer, but actually different from other options, coming with purposely created perforations to reduce overall weight and improve ventilation for owners taking part in strenuous physical activities. Finally, the fact here is that the Watch offer additional Nike watch faces in both digital and analog designs, with an included complication to instantly invoke the Nike+ Run Club app, which is offered as a free download for now.
It still comes equipped with Apple S2 dual-core processor with GPS. It’s water resistant up to 50 meters, and also has the usual Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and heart rate sensor integration on board. Features a second-generation OLED Retina display offering twice the brightness at 1000 nits. Price starts at %369 for the 38mm model, and the 42mm model goes up to set you back for $399.
