After launching the Apple Watch Series 2 in India, the Apple Watch Nike+ Edition will go on sale starting October 28 in India according to Apple’s website. The smart watch was introduced by Apple on September 7 along with Apple Watch Series 2, the new iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus.
The smart watch will be priced at Rs 32,900 and Rs 34,900 for a 38mm and 42mm case size respectively. It will be available via Nike’s own website, Nike retail stores, Apple Authorized Resellers and select specialty and departmental stores.
Manufactured specifically for runners, the watch comes with an ‘Advanced’ mode, perforated straps and fitness-centric apps including the Nike+ Run Club app. It would be available in four different colour combinations. Apart from the two cases, the Apple Watch Nike+ Edition will be available with four exclusive Nike Sport Band colour combinations including Black/Cool Gray, Black/Volt, Flat Silver/White, and Flat Silver/Volt Sport band.
The Nike band is said to be made out of flexible fluoroelastomer – which is also used in Apple Watch Sport bands. The former is perforated to allow better ventilation. The watch is designed to feature a sporty look and feel with a lightweight.
The Apple Watch Nike+ Edition is designed for runners; it comes with an inbuilt GPS to track the wearer’s pace, distance and route so they won’t always require an iPhone while running. The smartwatch is water resistant up to 50mm and supports Siri commands and watch faces with the Nike+ Run Club app. This help to motivates users to go for a run and keeps them updated with their daily schedule and progress.
The Apple Watch Series 2 is already available in India. The watch is priced at Rs Rs 32,900 in Gold, Rose Gold, Silver/Space Black stainless steel, and Silver/Space Grey aluminium colour options.
