On Sept. 7, Apple® and Nike introduced Apple Watch® Nike+. It’s the ultimate companion for those with a passion for running, whether they’re emerging runners or marathon veterans.

The exclusive pairing between Nike Sport Bands and Apple Watch Series 2 features GPS, a two-times-brighter display, water resistance 50 meters,* a powerful dual-core processor and watchOS® 3.

Nike+ Run Club

Siri® commands also makes an appearance in Apple Watch Nike+ and it includes a deep integration with the new Nike+ Run Club app. The app can be easily accessed right from the watch face, so users can get going with a quick tap. It also offers daily motivation through smart run reminders, challenges from friends and even alerts informing when the weather is right to get outside.

Training data, including pace, distance and heart rate are available at a glance, and through shared run summaries, the app promotes friendly competition, even allowing users to send fist bumps to each other right from the wrist. If a fist bump doesn’t motivate you, I don’t know what will!


Apple Watch Nike+ features built-in GPS to track pace, distance and route, so users can run without an iPhone®. With the brightest display Apple has ever made, metrics are easy to read, no matter if the sun is glaring in your face. Users can also take a post-run dip in the pool, since Apple Watch Nike+ is water resistant 50 meters.

The lightweight Nike Sport band includes the same strong, flexible fluoroelastomer as the original Apple Watch Sport™ Band, but now it’s perforated for better ventilation and sweat management.
