Apple is doing pretty well in the smartwatch market. Last year, the Cupertino Company shipped more smartwatches than any other manufacturer in the market. This helped Apple retain its dominance in the smartwatch industry with over 60 percent market share. Apple Watch gains its popularity among customers thanks to its stunning design and high techs. The Cupertino Company never stops expanding its usefulness just beyond being able to show time/date and setting reminders.
Apple Watch NikeLab
Last year, Apple released Apple Watch Nike+, a great companion for anyone who runs. Earlier this month, the Cupertino Company launched a new version of Apple Watch Nike+ called Apple Watch NikeLab in partnership with sportswear giant, Nike. Apple today announced that the new variant will be available on nike.com, at its NikeLab stores and at the Apple Tokyo pop-up store at the Isetan department store starting April 27.
NikeLab combines perfectly a Space Gray aluminum case found on the current Apple Watch Series 2 with a black and cream Nike band. This makes it an ultimate tool for those with passion for running. Besides, NikeLab models include many of the favorite elements from its previous models like Siri commands, GPS, stunning display and water resistance. Under the hood, a powerful dual-core processor powers the device.
According to Apple, the 38mm and the 42mm models will be priced at $369 and $399 respectively. However, NikeLab models will not be available in Apple’s retails stores or its online store.
Nike has been Apple’s long-standing partner. Earlier this year, the Cupertino Company made the Apple Watch Nike+ straps available standalone. This year, Apple is expected to release a premium iPhone 8 with OLED display, a 10.5 inch iPad Pro with bezel-free design and an iMac for pro users.
Apple Watch Series 2 made its debut alongside iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last September. Sources say that the next generation Apple Watch will include a SIM Card for LTE connectivity. Let’s wait and see.
