The only thing new about Nike's latest Apple Watch is the band

The only thing new about Nike's latest Apple Watch is the band

Aside from the band, which won't be sold alone, the NikeLab is exactly the same as the Nike+.

I don't understand why Nike felt the need to give this Watch a new name rather than releasing it as an extension of the Nike+ line. Now, the two companies are at it again with another new smartwatch: the Apple Watch NikeLab.

Just like the Apple Watch Nike+ models that were first unveiled in 2016, this is a Series 2 model running the latest watchOS 3 with built-in Global Positioning System and water-resistance. It also appears unlikely that the band will be available for separate purchase, though that remains unclear.

There's no word on the price tag, but we'd imagine it'll be around the same as Apple Watch Nike+, which starts at $369/£369.

Apple and Nike first teamed up in September of 2016 for the Nike+ Apple Watch that launched alongside Apple's own set of Series 2 Apple Watch devices. 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.
