CUPERTINO and BEAVERTON, October 24, 2016 - Apple and Nike announced today that Apple Watch Nike + will be available from Friday October 28th. Apple Watch Nike + combines all the unique features of Apple Watch Series 2 with the new Nike + Run Club app, providing unparalleled motivation, guidance from the world's best coaches and runners, and training plans that you can tune into every schedule and level. In addition, Apple Watch Nike + comes with exclusive Nike sports straps. This version also has unique dials that are inspired by Nike's distinctive style. The dials can easily be personalized with useful apps such as the Activity rings, Heart rate, Stopwatch and Weather, allowing runners to know exactly where they stand at a glance.

"Running around the world is one of the most popular ways to stay in shape and live healthily. With Apple Watch Nike +, runners are even more motivated to meet their goals, "said Jeff Williams, Apple's Chief Operating Officer. "The reactions we have received so far are fantastic. That is why we are pleased that our customers will be able to wear their Apple Watch Nike + from next Friday. "

"Apple and Nike have in common that we want to make life easier and more fun for our customers. With this special Watch we hope to reach that for runners everywhere around the world, "said Trevor Edwards, president of Nike. "With Apple Watch Nike + and the Nike + Run Club app, we've combined a versatile device with a simple running solution for all athletes. This again demonstrates the drive of Nike to bring innovative products to the market. "

Apple Watch Nike + has, just like all Apple Watch Series 2 models, a built-in GPS system that allows you to keep pace, distance and route. Users do not even have to take their iPhone with them when they start running. In addition, Apple Watch Nike + is equipped with the brightest display that Apple has ever made. This makes it easy to read the measurement data. And since it's water resistant to 50 meters, you can take a refreshing dive into the water without any problems after training. * The Nike + Run Club app integrates seamlessly with Apple Watch Nike + and provides a daily dose of motivation through smart memories, challenges from friends and even reports about favorable weather conditions. Training data, such as pace, distance and heart rate, can be seen at a glance. Via shared training overviews, the app also ensures healthy sports between runners. They can even send each other a 'box' via the wrist.
