Nike and Apple collaboration

Nike and Apple are about to drop this collaboration on the public

The Apple Watch just got a sporty boost of refined style, courtesy of Nike.

NikeLab, the sportswear company’s creative arm for exclusive collaborations with top designers and fashion labels, just announced the Apple Watch NikeLab edition.

The new design pairs a Space Gray Apple Watch casing with a “Light Bone/Black” band, giving the device a more laid-back vibe than Nike and Apple’s previous collab, the Apple Watch Nike+. The NikeLab edition will be available in both 38 mm and 42 mm sizes, just like other versions of the device.

There’s no new hardware or software perks with this new edition and, as we noted in our review of the Nike-centric version of the device, not much difference from the Series 2 in general so this release is mostly targeting hypebeasts searching for an exclusive new look.

There is one notable difference between the Apple Watch Nikelab and other versions of the Apple Watch Series 2: the limited-run device will only be available for purchase on nike.com, at NikeLab stores, and Apple’s pop-up store in Isetan, Japan. It’s the first time an Apple Watch won’t be available directly from Apple, according to MacRumors.

The smartwatch drops on April 27. No pricing details have been announced but since it’s an exclusive limited run, you might have to spend a little extra cash.
