    Nike's latest Apple Watch, the Apple Watch NikeLab, is now available for purchase from the Nike website, Nike Lab stores, and the Apple Watch pop-up shop at the Isetan department store in Tokyo.

    First announced last week, the Apple Watch NikeLab pairs a Space Gray Apple Watch Series 2 aluminum case with a black and cream perforated Nike band.

    According to Nike, the Apple Watch NikeLab is limited edition and designed to be the "ultimate style companion" for runners. Like the existing Apple Watch Nike+, the Apple Watch NikeLab features a Nike watch face and integration with the Nike+ Run Club app.

    Apple Watch NikeLab has the same pricing as an aluminum Apple Watch Sport at $369 for the 38mm model and $399 for the 42mm model. The new watch is available exclusively from Nike and the Isetan department store, marking the first Apple Watch that is not available in Apple retail stores and from the Apple website.

    Apple and Nike first teamed up in September of 2016 for the Nike+ Apple Watch that launched alongside Apple's own set of Series 2 Apple Watch devices. Apple offers two Apple Watch Nike+ models in Silver and Space Gray aluminum along with standalone Apple Watch Nike+ bands.

    The band looks nice - must've spent years designing it.

    Not really. Seems rather plain and overpriced.

    Hah Jony probably designed it one day whilst he was sitting on the toilet.

    I wasn't talking about the band, I was talking about Apple and Nike's business relationship. Look up the definition of synergy.

    Interesting Apple is selling that watch through traditional Nike channels.

    I've went to the local mall, and no place that sells electronics (besides Apple's) is displaying smart watches proiminently, Apple or any brand.

    Meanwhile in the big sporting goods store, there's a big, well illuminated section with sports smart watches, with garmin, polar and other brands of sports-first watches.

    Apple should be there too.

    I quite like this. It looks like something Tiger Woods might wear golfing.

    Sad in a way, I used to run with the Nike Running app, then got an Apple Watch. I wanted a bit more for running so I got a Polar M400 and would wear that while running and an AW when not, then I got a Garmin Fenix 5x and haven't worn the Apple Watch since.

    I guess it's all what you want to do, but for the running enthusiast I think there's way better out there for the money.

    Yes please. There is no reason someone should have to dish out an arm and a leg for one of these bands.

    Yeah, I'm confused, this is just new black/white colors on the nike bands... right? Otherwise the band, watch, and software are all 100% identical?

    Yeah, I got a black and volt one on Amazon for $10. I can't imagine why people would pay $50 for these things...

    I completely agree that it's not the best running watch out there. But for me it provides enough usefulness outside the running realm that it's worth it. And it slowly has been improving as a running watch too.

    I bagged one this morning which will deliver tomorrow.....saw by lunchtime they'd sold out.

    It looks cool....but if you already have one then it's not such a rave.

    The band is nice but I'd like it in black elastomer or whatever plastic/elastic it is called. But more than anything I want Apple to either put out nicer watch faces or let us design our own!
