Last September, Apple and Nike introduced Apple Watch Nike+, the ultimate tool for anyone who runs, pairing exclusive Nike Sport Bands with Apple Watch Series 2. Today, the long-standing partnership continues with NikeLab — the company’s collaborative innovation platform — through the launch of Apple Watch NikeLab.
The limited edition, neutral-toned Apple Watch NikeLab maintains the beloved features of its predecessor: deep integration with the Nike+ Run Club app, exclusive Siri commands, GPS, a two-times-brighter display and water resistance to 50 meters*, all made possible by a powerful dual-core processor and watchOS 3.
Apple Watch NikeLab is the ultimate style companion for those with a passion for running, whether emerging runners or marathon veterans. The NikeLab Innovation x Innovators logo appears on the inside of the Apple Watch NikeLab band, in 38mm and 42mm options. The Apple Watch itself is a Space Gray Apple Watch Nike+.
Apple Watch NikeLab is available April 27 on nike.com, at NikeLab doors and at an Apple Tokyo pop-up in Isetan.
*Apple Watch Series 2 has a water resistance rating of 50 meters under ISO standard 22810:2010. This means that it may be used for shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool or ocean. However, Apple Watch Series 2 should not be used for scuba diving, waterskiing or other activities involving high-velocity water or submersion below shallow depth. Stainless steel and leather bands are not water resistant.
MacDailyNews Take: Nice!
Our Space Gray Apple Watch Nike+ units were slightly jealous until they saw the wide range of bands available via Amazon. Of course, they won’t have the NikeLab Innovation x Innovators logo on the inside of the Apple Watch NikeLab band, but, somehow, we’ll live.
