When two popular brands like Apple and Nike come together, it is obvious that it will grab eyeballs. Both these companies are considered to be the pros in their respective fields of expertise. This brings a sense of assurance that the product they will come up with will be an amalgamation of the best of technologies. These companies introduced the Apple Watch Nike+ in September last year which was quoted to be the ultimate gadget for anyone who runs. It was a result of the pairing between Nike as a sports brand and the Apple Watch Series 2. After receiving a positive response for this, there is another addition to the Apple Watch collection which is NikeLab.
On its official blog, Nike announced today that a new version of the Apple Watch Nike+ is out which is very close to the previous model. It is a combination of the Space Grey Apple Watch Series 2 aluminum case which comes with a black and white colored Nike band. The main difference between the latest update and the previous model is that the NikeLab will be available only through Nike’s e-commerce website at the locations decided by the company. Apart from this, it will only be available at one physical store which is the Apple pop-up in Tokyo.
