    I'm looking to buy a serie 3 apple watch with LTE and I don't know between Nike models or regular. I'm not a jogger but I like the look of the nike models. Beside the look, is there many differences between the two models?

    Just the Nike watch faces and the 'Run' app being pre-installed

    It really just comes down to whether you like the Nike watch bands and/or the Nike watch faces. Otherwise it is identical to the aluminum series 3.

    What I did is bought the Nike+ version with the black sports loop and sold the band on eBay. Offset $90 worth of the cost of the watch.

    Got it for the Nike faces and new band, still bought a Nike+ black/volt elastomer band, since don’t want the sport loop I got with the space gray to stink. Especially since I wear it to work after my morning runs.

    Bought a normal AW watch then picked up the nike sports band at an Apple Store. It is my favorite band - the holes allow breathability when jogging - makes a noticeable difference.

    What others forgot to mention is that not only do you get extra watch faces but also extra colors for the watch faces.

    The Nike+ Apple Watch itself is fantastic. The sports band with the holes is very comfortable during workouts, and the exclusive watch faces are fun. But the Nike+ app itself is garbage. Unless you limit the distance of your runs to 5K or less, be prepared for a very glitchy experience. The app simply doesn't perform as advertised.

    I was debating the same thing and went with the Nike version simply because of the band & extra watch faces. Plus, if I ever decide to use the Nike Run feature, it there!
