CNET First Look
Apple Watch Nike+ versus the Series 2. What's really different?We break down three features that make the Apple Watch Nike+ uniquely different from the Apple Watch Series 2.
Alright, give me a seconds here, so a lot of people wonder really what is different between the nike apple plus watch edition and the standard apple watch. There is really 3 things, the first is the actual apple watch band on here, you'll see the different style. Ranging in colors from black to volt, or kinda this gray. Or a white in different combinations. That kinda gives it that branding and that feel for the Nike Run Club and the Nike+ app. And the second thing about this is two watch faces that are specific to the Nike+ edition of this watch. You have this kind of feature where you see the smooth logo. That's the link to the nightly running club app. You press on it directly from the watch space. It does support other complications as well so. You can still customize it but it has direct integration. And then the fourth thing, is the unique, series feature again Specific to this version of the watch. If you wanna start a run and you have your phone nearby, you can actually tell the watch start a five mile run, start a 30 minute run. And then you leave your phone behind and you're off to the race. So let's just kinda show this and see how it works. Start a four mile run. [MUSIC] And you see the countdown Beginning workout. And, we're good to go. [MUSIC] Pausing work out. Resuming workout. [MUSIC] So who is this watch really for? First of all if you love the Nike brand and you're really part of the Nike run community we talked about those three special features that make it unique. This is the watch For you. But again, it's still priced the same as a Series 2 watch, whether you're a 38 millimeter watch size or the 42 millimeter, that's 369 and 399. Again, you can also still get the Nike Running Club app, and use it on a Series Series 2 watch but you just won't get those three benefits we talked about, the styling, the watch faces. And then that exclusive Siri feature where you can talk to the watch. Now one more thing you guys and gals might wanna be aware of, if you love listening to music and you just wanna use the Apple Watch, It's a little trickier here. The music isn't directly integrated so what that means is you've gotta open up the music app to play your music and then you've got to start your run by opening up the running app so that's what makes it a little tricky. But overall if you're someone who loves the Nike Ecosystem and you like the Apple Watch experience this might be the one for you. [MUSIC]
