Nike+ version of the Apple Watch will officially be launching on October 28

Nike+ version of the Apple Watch will officially be launching on October 28
While the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were easily the two stars of the show at Apple's press event that took place last month, the Apple Watch Series 2 also debuted with some pretty compelling improvements over the first iteration of Apple's take on the smartwatch. Similar to Series 1, Series 2 of the Apple Watch comes in a few different collections to help separate the different variations of the watch, and one of the new inclusions with the Series 2 is the Nike+ edition.

The Nike+ Apple Watch features all of the same features that the normal Apple Watch Series 2 comes equipped with, but also bundles in an exclusive Nike Sport Band that's rated to be breathable and durable for all of your workouts, Nike-made watch faces that display info about your runs, and the Nike+ Run Club that comes pre-installed out of the box to help you get as much detail as possible with all of your running activity. The Nike+ Apple Watch is quit clearly targeted towards runners, and neither Apple or Nike held back any punches in regards to making sure that they've got all the necessary features to keep tabs on all of your running activities.

While the Nike+ Apple Watch certainly does look quite enticing, up until now we haven't had any idea as to when it would actually be available for purchase. Apple officially announced today that the Nike+ version of the Apple Watch Series 2 would be available for order on October 28, and it will cost $369 with a 38mm case and $399 for a 42mm case - the same pricing as the normal version of the Apple Watch Series 2.

I bought my series 2 and got it two weeks ago and bought a band that looks like the Nike band. Since there's no real difference people always ask how I got the Nike watch so I love my watch specially since I don't have to remove it when I shower or wash my hands.

It kills me that Apple has put specific Nike watch faces on this Nike Apple watch. Yet all the other Apple watch owners have no option to install any new watch faces on their existing Apple watches. Apple calls this a smart watch. Sure it's real smart for Apple, and not so smart for everyone else who bought one. Also when is Apple going to give it's users the ability to leave the watch face on like practically every other smart watch on the Market.

I've been in the market for a running GPS watch for a long time to replace my old nike+ watch, but nothing has impressed me especially with the price point. The Series 1 not having GPS was a deal breaker. This may be the watch for me.

There are much better options out there, especially in the fitness category. Look at Polars fitness trackers and smart watches. Or Fitbit has a number of them as well. Not to mention there is the Nixon Mission with Mil-810 specs, and can go down to a depth of a 100 meters, it also has a GPS and altimeter, swimming apps, skiing, surfing, golfing, and many more activities are supported.
