I didn’t like the faces as most had the link to the Nike running app that couldn’t be removed or changed as well as the Nike running app is preloaded on the watch face and cannot be deleted. Kinda like advertising bloatware IMO.

I tried the Nike version and didn't like the perforated band and I'm not a sports loop fan. I'm also not interested in the Nike faces as I'm not interested in the new Color faces.

You could always buy a band you like later. I never like the bands that come with the watch.

Never had a Nike watch, but am I right in thinking if you use Siri to start a run, it launches the Nike app, not the Apple one? In which case, that's a reason not to get one - in my view at least.

If you uninstall the Nike app from the Watch Siri would use the default Workout app for your runs.

Agree. As a runner I really liked the idea of a reflective band, but I also want the scratch resistant screen with the stainless steel.

Not everyone likes the Nike bands. Does the Nike come in every color?
The Nike comes only in the Silver and Space Grey Aluminum. I got the Space Grey with the Black Nike loop (reflective). Love the loop and like it much more than the "black" multicolored thread loop that comes with the regular space grey.

Also, while Nike Run Club might be on the watch itself... it doesn't come "installed" at least it didn't on my watch. I just use the Apple workout app when I go for a run. I have a specific Activity face that I use for running, and while I like the Nike watch faces, I don't use it for running. To sum up, I haven't really noticed the "Nike" branding getting in the way of anything I've been doing.

Because the Nike-bands looks like **** in my opinion.

This time around tho, since it's a new design and bigger model, I opted for the stainless steel-version. :)

I like the perforated standard Nike bands. Especially on the days I go gym.

Last year I grabbed a space grey S3 Nike. Sold the band for $100. Effectively got the Cellular model for $100 off. What's why I bought the Nike personally.
