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."

Apple Quietly Updates Site Confirming Apple Watch Nike+ Launch on October 28

Apple recently updated the Apple Watch Nike+ section of its official website with a launch date two weeks from today, on Friday, October 28, for the anticipated device (via Watch Generation). When announced alongside the other Apple Watch Series 2 models on September 7, Apple did not divulge a specific debut besides sometime in "late October." Anyone interested can pre-order the wearable in four models starting at $369 for 38mm and $399 for 42mm. Apple's partnership with Nike aims to help runners achieve better results while wearing the Apple Watch, with an aluminum casing similar to other Sport editions and a unique perforated band that's stretchy, light, and breathable. The changes extend into the software of the Apple Watch Nike+ as well, as Nike has designed special software for the Nike+, which is designed to motivate runners to stay active. Nike+ Apple Watches include unique Nike-designed watch faces and complications for the Apple device that users will only be able to get when purchasing the special edition of the Apple Watch. At its iPhone 7 event, Apple mentioned that its wireless AirPods would see a late October launch, so it's possible the Bluetooth headphones will also launch on October 28. More anticipated is the expected debut of new MacBooks later this month, which Apple CEO Tim Cook addressed in September by reassuring fans, saying he and the company are "very committed" to the Mac line and to "stay

Apple and Nike Debut Apple Watch Nike+ Edition

Apple and Nike today announced the Apple Watch Nike+, an aluminum Apple Watch Series 2 that comes with a perforated rubber Nike band and watch face. The two companies say the new watch is the "perfect running partner" and comes with deep Nike integration. The Apple Watch Nike+ comes with all of the improvements that the Apple Watch Series 2 does, which includes built-in GPS, a brighter display, water resistance and a new dual-core processor. However, it also has new abilities that make it easier for frequent runners to run, including watch faces that instantly launch new runs and exclusive Siri commands. Siri can be used by Apple Watch Nike+ users to both start and stop runs. Nike's Run Club app is integrated into the Apple Watch Nike+, offering daily pieces of motivation via smart run reminders, challenges from friends, and alerts when there's good running weather outside. The running display also offers quick, glanceable data on pace, distance and heart rate. There are also a couple of social features, allowing users to "fist bump" fellow runners from the Watch and shared-run summaries. The Nike Sport Bands are exclusive to the Apple Watch Nike+ and are not sold separately. They come in four color options: Black / Volt, Black / Cool Gray, Flat Silver / White, and Flat Silver / Volt. The Apple Watch Nike+ will be available in 38 mm for $369 and 42 mm for $399 from Apple.com, Nike.com, Apple Stores and select Nike retail stores.

Nike Rebrands Running App to 'Nike+ Run Club' With Personalized Workouts

Nike today updated its popular "Nike+ Running" iOS app with a new name, "Nike+ Run Club," as well as introducing various user interface changes and features (via Fast Company). The big new addition centers around "coaching plans" that let users choose a workout and running plan, which then dynamically adapt to the specific progress made by each user. Some of these plans include categories like "Getting Started" and "Get More Fit," which falls in line with Nike's mission statement of treating each one of its customers like a professional athlete in order to help them "reach their full potential." Within each plan there's a new "Benchmark Run" that gauges the improvements -- or slacking off -- of each user as they work their way through a workout. With the latest version of fitness app Nike+ Run Club, for example, personalized coaching for newbie runners is central to the experience. As the app learns more about you, it tailors your workouts accordingly. "If you have a body, you're an athlete," says Jay Lee, global head of product for Nike+. "What we've learned is that we really need to serve [athletes] as individuals if we want them to reach their full potential." On the social side of things, Nike has made it easier to share progress with friends on social networks as well as tweaked its leaderboards tab with new ways to compare and compete with people who are also using the app. Users will also be able to use the companion Apple Watch app independently of the iOS app, since the new update allows users to "run free" and leave their iPhone behind. The new

Nike Appoints Apple CEO Tim Cook as Lead Independent Director

Nike today announced some changes to its board of directors, which will see Apple CEO Tim Cook serving as lead independent director going forward. Cook has been a member of Nike's board since 2005, serving as chair of the Compensation Committee and as a member of the Nominating & Corporate Governance Committee. Nike Chairman Phil Knight has also retired from the board of directors and is being replaced by Mark Parker, who has served as Nike's president and CEO since 2006, in a transition that was first announced a year ago. In addition to serving on Nike’s board of directors, Apple CEO Tim Cook also serves on the board of directors for the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, a role he was appointed to earlier this

New Nike+ App Will Focus on a Customized Shopping Experience

At the Nike Innovation Summit yesterday in New York, popular athletics company Nike revealed a new addition to its line of Nike+ software, simply called the Nike+ app, which will focus on a personalized shopping experience similar to Apple's own Apple Store app. Nike+ will integrate with the company's previously existing Nike+ Running [Direct Link] and Nike+ Training Club [Direct Link] apps, but is mainly billed as an information-centered hub for Nike's mobile software world. According to Nike, the "plus" in the title "now equates to 'personal,'" thanks to the customized springboard experience of Nike+. The first tab in the app will showcase an always-updating list of stories -- from training tips to product releases -- that will become more personalized over time the more Nike+ is used. The My Store tab will let users purchase Nike products from within the app, while the Services tab will guide them to the nearest physical Nike store and even let them book a 1:1 product reservation. Starting in June, the new Nike+ app becomes athletes' all-access pass to Nike's most coveted products and events via one seamless sign-on. The “plus” now equates to “personal,” and the app connects members simply and swiftly to the Nike+ Run Club, Nike+ Training Club and Nike+ SNKRS apps. It also offers members a personal store stocked with performance product recommendations and reserved invitations to their favorite sneakers. Combining these offerings, the app serves every step of an athletic life — from competition to training to sport-style — propelling members towards
