Thanks to Apple updating its product page we now know that the much sought Apple Watch Nike+ edition will be released on October 28th. The new smartwatch is running-oriented for people who are not afraid of practicing sports with smartwatch on their wrist.
The Nike+ Apple Watch is a new slightly specialized take for active users interested in tracking different metrics and data during their activity. The Nike+ edition builds on the Series 2 Apple watches. The Nike partnership has contributed to some design aspects as well as the specialized software meant to provide you the information you need to measure and improve your activity. Thanks to its water-resistance feature, the Apple Watch Nike+ edition will also feature swimming support.
Although it was originally revealed at a San Francisco event last month, only now Apple has decided to disclose the October 28th release date. The Apple Watch Nike+ will come in both 38mm and 42mm case sizes. The two price variants of $369 and $399 are the same as any Series 2 watches. However, one of the new designs aspects is breathable straps with holes in it to prevent perspiration. It comes in both black and gray with green accents inside the holes.
Although the Nike software might be only reason anyone will buy the watch, its base software is Apple’s watchOS 3. This makes it compatible will all the different apps available for the system. Just as any smartwatch or activity tracker, you need to tether it to a smartphone to use at its utmost potential. This will allow users to receive updates and notifications on their performance. Additionally, the Apple Watch Nike+ can still be used autonomously for apps and measuring your exercises. The brighter screen of the Apple Series 2 watches is an exercise-friendly feature.
Nike is one most popular fitness brands on the market and by partnering with the company, Apple hopes that the Apple Watch Nike+ edition will be able to compete with a previously unavailable sector of the market to them, activity trackers. This way Apple will go up against companies like FitBit, JawBone, and others.
