    I have ordered a 42 Space Grey Aluminium with the Nylon strap and keep getting tempted to switch to the Nike solely for the Volt sport band. I don't really want any of the other Nike stuff as I use a different running app. Since the Hermes bands became available after the watch release do you think the Nike ones will be available separately? Or I wonder how long until a good knockoff is available.

    I so hope so! I'm in the same boat as you! Love the Volt band. Surely they'll make them available to everyone, give it a few months. Surely a Nike+ Watch user is able to purchase a second band.

    Garmin entered into a similar partnership with Nike on their Forerunner 235 running watch last year. The Nike version had an almost identical similar colored band as the Apple Watch 2. This particular band turned out to be available for sale separate from the watch itself on the Garmin web site as soon as the watch was released for sale.

    So hopefully by Christmas it will be available for all.

    I assume there will be a knockoff available from China long before the Nike Apple Watch even hits the streets.

    Or buy a regular Sport band and use a paper punch on it.

    Nike may be selling the Garmins, but there are no special markings on the watch (like the Nike+ tag on the AWS2) and the color may be similar, but it's not "volt," Nike's special color.

    PS - they won't be selling official Nike+ bands separately. I don't know what they'd do about replacements, but I assume it's not going to be sold as a standalone like all of the other straps. Note that the Nylon straps that come with the Gold and Rose golf have special hardware that matches the cases, but you can't buy them with [rose] gold hardware from Apple.
