Nike And Apple To Launch Apple Watch NikeLab Edition
Nike and Apple are set to launch a new watch model called Apple Watch NikeLab Edition with a fresh neutral-toned pierced elastomer band. This latest wrist accessory will go on sale April 27, Thursday only at Nike.com, NikeLab outlet and an Apple pop-up in Tokyo.
According to Macworld, the Apple Watch NikeLab is a limited-edition version sporting a Space Grey aluminum case, light bone, and black Nike Sports Band. It also includes the NikeLab Innovation x Innovators logo on the back.
Apple Watch NikeLab is just similar to 2016 released Apple Watch Nike+ variants. It is also a Series 2 model running the newest watchOS 3 alongside built-in GPS and water-resistance.
Furthermore, the Apple Watch NikeLab is unified with the Nike+ Run Club. It has unique Siri commands catering to runners as well. Unfortunately, this model will neither be available on Apple.com nor at any other Apple store areas.
According to Phone Arena, there is no official announcement about how much Apple Watch NikeLab would cost. A number of units Nike and Apple plan to release is neither revealed.
Nevertheless, some reports claimed that Apple Watch NikeLab would be sold similar to Apple Watch Series 2 Nike+. The 38mm and 42mm versions would possibly cost $369 and $399 respectively.
Apple Watch NikeLab appears to be almost similar to the 2016 Apple Watch Nike+ models. Therefore, this means that Nike just needed to broaden its partnership with Apple and endorse itself as a creative firm having an exclusive tech facility.
However, the only thing that made Apple Watch NikeLab different with Apple Watch Nike+ models is its strange made-up color: bone. Apple may be providing Nike an exclusive product aiming to attract people to visit Nike.com and the NikeLab stores. Through that, other innovative bone-colored materials Nike is selling will be introduced to the public as well.
