Apple Watch Nike+ stomps on the ashes of the FuelBand

New, 18 comments

Apple and Nike teamed up for a unique version of the Apple Watch Series 2, called Apple Watch Nike+. The watch has a special breathable watch band (which looks like swiss cheese), and Nike watch faces which simplifies and stylizes the interface to focus on fitness and flashy motivational phrases. Nike also has a new social network of sorts, called Nike+ Run Club, that the Watch will be happy to integrate with, and even some special Siri commands. To declare the corporate commitment this watch embodies, there's even a Nike swoosh carved in the aluminum back. RIP FuelBand, it's like we never even knew you.

Apple Watch Nike+ will sell for the same price as the regular Series 2 Watch, $369, but won't be available until late October.
