Nike Announces New Apple Watch Bands With Matching Running Shoes

Nike today announced four new Apple Watch bands for Apple Watch Nike+ that will match the Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit "Day to Night" collection of shoes. The company said that the new colors of bands and shoes are "inspired by a shade of the sky, from dawn to dusk," and mark the first time that Apple Watch owners can directly match their band choice to their Nike sneakers.

Similar to previous Nike+ Apple Watch bands, the new options are made of the same flexible fluoroelastomer material that Apple uses in its own Sport bands, but include a perforated design for ventilation and sweat management. The most recent Nike and Apple partnership was in the cream and black NikeLab band that launched in April, following the first Apple Watch Nike+ device that debuted last September.

Users will be able to purchase the new Nike Apple Watch sport bands for $49.00 each beginning on June 1 on Nike.com and in select Nike stores. The company said that the bands will be available on Apple.com, in Apple retail locations, authorized resellers, and specialty department stores from "early June." The running shoes will also go on sale on June 1, and will be priced at $190.00.

5 cent bands sold for $50 to go along with 20 cent shoes sold for $200. They look great, but I just can't fathom paying that much money for some cloth and rubber.

Are you somehow trying to convey there are differences in the chemical composition between fluoroelastomer and some common rubber to justify Apple's application of the material as a watch band in addition to its $50 price tag?
Who cares about the price tag. If someone wants to pay $50.00 for the Watch band, so be it. What is apparent is you don't understand the differences between rubber and flueroastamer.

"Fluoroelastomer comes from the two words "fluorinated" and "elastomer". Fluoroelastomers are famous for their durability resistance to heat, oils, solvents and fuels. They are often used for fuel-distribution systems or for high-quality lab gloves. It is not a material that will stretch out easily, get damaged by extreme heats, or get deformed by being excessively sweat on. It is also much less prone to induce any allergic reactions than, for example, latex."

Where as rubber, doesn't have the consistency and durability as Flueroastamer does. Flueroastamer easily is the preference For fitness for reasons stated above.

They aren't "rubber", nor do they cost $0.05 to produce. Pretty easy to see this when comparing Apple bands to ones purchased from Amazon or Best Buy. It's an extremely noticeable feel and durability difference.

The sport bands I bought with my first gen watch are still going strong.

Sold on the midnight blue Nike Band. Nice to see additional colors in these. The perforated design is much more efficient for work outs.
