The runner-focused Apple Watch Nike+ launches on October 28

The Apple Watch Nike+ makes the Apple Watch Series 2 even more fitness-focused.

No, we’re not running today, no matter what the Nike app suggests in the image above. But we now know when we will be. Apple quietly updated its Apple Watch Nike+ website to include an October 28 release date.

The Apple Watch Series 2’s upgrades focus relentlessly on fitness tracking, as detailed in Macworld’s comprehensive Apple Watch Series 2 review, and the Apple Watch Nike+ cranks that to 11. This special Watch build has a perforated sports band for enhanced ventilation, and is paired with the Apple Watch Series 2’s lightweight aluminum case. Of course, it still offers core Apple Watch Series 2 features like built-in GPS and water resistance up to 50 meters deep.

But this collaboration goes beyond mere physical design. The Apple Watch Nike+ includes numerous runner-centric software touches, such as special active watch faces and the Nike+ Run Club social app, which provides you with motivational prompts, workout comparisons and fist bumps with friends, run scheduling, personalized coaching sessions, and more.

The Apple Watch Nike+ will be available in a variety of colors, at the same starting price as the Apple Watch Series 2 itself: $369 for the 38mm version, and $399 for the 42mm model.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
