The Apple Watch Nike+ comes with a collection of exclusive features baked into the device's hardware, including the new Nike+ Run Club app, so users can get the most out of running with the Apple Watch as possible. In the new press release, Apple also confirmed that the Nike Sport Bands will be sold exclusively in Apple Watch Nike+ collections, and not be sold separately.

Otherwise, the Nike device is the same as all of the other Series 2 Apple Watches, with built-in GPS, "the brightest display Apple has ever made," and water resistance up to 50 meters. Apple Watch Nike+ will be available in 38 mm at $369 and in 42 mm at $399 from Apple.com, Nike.com, Apple retail stores, "select" Nike retail stores, and some department stores including Macy's and DICK'S Sporting Goods.

I guess airpods will also come out the 28th. Certainly sounds like "late-October" to me. Can't get any later

it's functional. nowhere pretty like watch os. And honestly that's what matters the most.
Yeah, mostly. Except for when they don't. This isn't the venue for a Garmin rant, so I'd just direct folks to the Garmin forums for a good read.

More works than doesn't which is why I'm still wearing a Garmin, but I'm ready to move on.

BTW, your Ironman reference is specious. Apple/Nike aren't aiming for that segment with this model. Can't say what they'll do in the future, but Apple hasn't typically gone much for the fringe use cases.

of course not but if your going to run a marathon with GPS and youre not a very fast runner there is a good chance that the apple watch will die on you.
What is the battery life WITH a phone associated with it? I know they say ~5hrs without a phone, but what is it with a phone nearby as you'd typically expect a 4hr+ marathoner to carry in a Spibelt or armband?

So it's not the best sports watch by any means.
Who's been claiming it is?
