While the Apple Watch Series 3
officially launches September 22 in the first wave of countries, those interested in Nike+ models will have to wait a bit longer.
In fine print, Apple announced
that new Series 3 models of Apple Watch Nike+
will be available in limited quantities starting Thursday, October 5. Apple Watch Nike+ pre-orders still start September 15 like regular Series 3 models.
Apple Watch Nike+ comes with all the features of Apple Watch Series 3, including cellular, which lets you take calls, send messages, and soon stream Apple Music without needing to pair the watch to your iPhone.
Apple Watch Nike+ models have exclusive Nike watch faces designed specifically for Apple Watch, with digital and analog styles. You can launch the Nike+ Run Club app directly from the face by tapping the complication.
With just a tap, you can start an in-ear Audio Guided Run featuring the voice of a Nike+ Run Club coach, world-class athlete, or special guest. Each guided run features coach-curated soundtracks to keep you in the zone.
Apple Watch Nike+ comes in four styles in both 38mm and 42mm sizes, with both cellular and Wi-Fi + GPS only models to choose from:
- Silver Aluminum Case with Pure Platinum/Black Nike Sport Band
- Silver Aluminum Case with Bright Crimson/Black Nike Sport Loop

Nike is discounting its selection of Apple Watch Nike+ watches by 30 percent, dropping prices by a significant amount.
For the 38mm Apple Watch Nike+
, the discount drops the price from $369 to $258.97, while on the 42mm model
, the discount drops the price from $399 to $279.97.
The discount applies to the 38mm Apple Watch in Silver/White and Black/Cool Grey. For 42mm models, the discount is available on the Silver/White and Black/Silver configurations. The 42mm White/Platinum and Black/Volt are not included in the sale.
It's not clear how long the sale will last nor how long the discounted Nike+ Apple Watch models will remain in stock, so if you're interested in purchasing one, you should do so sooner rather than later.
At 30 percent off, the discount is one of the best that we've seen on the Apple Watch Nike+ in recent months.
Nike's current sale follows an exclusive 30 percent discount that was offered to Nike+ Run Club members over the weekend

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

Aspiring actor-singer-fashion model Jaden Smith is back again, this time with a full-length music video. But all it takes is about a minute to realize that the camera seems to be in love with Jaden’s brand spanking new, impossible for most to get Nike Mag self-lacing sneakers, the ones inspired by Back to the Future. And while few will ever lay hands on the shoes, it is a nicely timed video to drum up interest in Nike’s other self-lacing sneaker, the Nike HyperAdapt.
But wait. Jaden likes to go deeper. Maybe it’s not just a product placement. What’s really going on here?
Conspiracy theory mode: ON. Read more…
