The device is not all too different from the standard model. You essentially get a timepiece that’s been suped-up to better meet the needs of runners. The model comes with the Nike+ Run Club app out of the box, and a few watch faces inspired by Nike’s iconic style. There’s also a complication for launching the Nike+ Run Club app.
Unlike the exclusive watch faces, you can download the Run Club app to any Apple Watch smartwatch. The software provides coaching and over 180 workouts created by Nike “master trainers.”
Nike+ Series 4 comes with a choice of Nike Sport Bands including three molded bands (Anthracite/Black, Pure Platinum/Black, and Black/Volt). There’s also a band with reflective threads woven in that comes in black and Summit White options.
In terms of performance, there is no change to the standard edition. Like all Series 4 models, the Nike version has a 40% larger display, ECG sensor (that’s currently working only in the US), fall detection, alerts for high/low heart rate and more.
If you are someone who is serious about running this might just be the Apple Watch of choice for you. Both the 40mm and 44mm sizes are only available in the Wi-Fi + GPS model for now. You can purchase them in the US, Australia, Canada, UK, and many countries throughout Asia and Europe.
The watch is priced between $399 and $499, and additional bands cost $49 each. Those that are looking to buy the watch in-store might want to move quick as only limited quantities are available.
