    Nike today shared a series of humorous new Apple Watch Nike+ videos which star comedian Kevin Hart as "The Man Who Kept Running." Hart is positioned as a Nike+ Apple Watch owner who was so taken with the device that he couldn't stop running.

    In the first video, Kevin Hart is shown unboxing the new Apple Watch Nike+ in October, followed by a message that says he disappeared the next day. "Months later, a film crew found him in the desert 700 miles from home," reads the text in the video.


    Hart, now sporting long hair and a beard, is pictured running through the desert and he explains why he can't stop.
    Subsequent videos show Hart talking to rocks, planning his trip, sharing his New Year's Resolutions, battling the weather, and competing with his friends using the Apple Watch's motivational features.




    All seven Nike+ Apple Watch Videos can be viewed on Nike's YouTube Channel. Apple has done its own series of videos highlighting the Apple Watch, featuring it in short 15 second clips that show off its fitness capabilities.

    The Apple Watch Nike+ is a Nike-branded version of the Apple Watch Series 2 with an aluminum casing and a special perforated band. It includes exclusive Nike watch faces and it works with the Nike+ Run Club app, designed to motivate users to run each day.

    Watchbands!

    Honestly, the Apple Watch (or other "wearables") can be game-changers in terms of fitness (and other things).

    I'm frustrated with the Mac platform right now, but this really is good stuff.

    These are some of the best commercials Apple has released lately. They make the watch look really good, even though they're showing just one thing it can do.

    I like that the ad shows the mental illness most people who enjoy running have.

    Love Kevin Hart but these are awful commercials.

    If you really need motivation to start running it's not coming from the watch it comes within.

    Or sign up for a 1/2 marathon or a marathon :p

    found 700 miles from home. Got lost when watch couldn't give him directions home because he didn't have his phone with him. Then it died a few hours later and he was left to wander the desert.

    Yeah, but if when you sign up for a marathon, you're too busy telling everyone you know that you're doing a marathon to ever actually run.

    I miss Nike's old ads.
    They actually inspired you to run/do sports without any gimmicky humor.

    One of the best Nike ads:

    Ironic thing is... Running is not a good exercise for your body.

    If you are in the desert, wouldn't matter if you had your phone with you. :) you get props for making me laugh though.

    Great commercials though... It's Kevin Hart and it will help sell the only smartwatch worth buying.

    The Apple Watch 1 has made a significant positive change in my overall physical fitness. Just like Mom, turn off TV and go outside and before you do Breathe. :)

    Definitely!

    I've been using Nike+ since it was launched 10 years ago. I was in my early 40s and out of shape, and Nike+ motivated me to get moving again. Since then, I've logged 25,000 Nike+ miles and am in the best shape — both physically and mentally — of my adult life.

    If you're on the fence about Nike+ or buying an Apple Watch for its fitness features, just do it!

    Really? Says what knowledgable Doctor?
    I run with a group that has two orthopedic surgeons as members. And no, we don't ask for free advice while on a run.

    I think the Apple Watch has something to offer for everybody. Rather it be fitness, notifications, controlling your Airpods, Home automation, etc. It has a lot of potential, but one does not have to use all of its capabilities for it to be useful.

    Really depends what you mean by not "good excercise" and what you want to accomplish. It definitely takes a toll on knees/joints and isn't for everyone, but it's great for burning calories, toning and for cardiovascular fitness.

    I gotta admit, the Apple Watch Nike+ looks pretty good. And I'm really not into the Apple Watch!
