Nike ‘ s new Apple Watch bands to match with your shoes

The Apple Watch of Nike+ already comes with exclusive Nike watch faces to get you in the mood to workout, and now you can match the color of the watch band with your Nike running shoes.

The four new Nike bands for the Apple Watch of Nike+ to match the colors in the Nike Air VaporMax running shoe line, including the colors of black, pink, white, and blue. (The colors, according to Nike, are inspired by the different times of the day on which the people like to perform). Each costs $49, which is the same amount that you can expect to spend on a regular sport band bought directly from Apple.

The main difference between these bands and Nike-specific perforation: both are made of a strong silicone elastomer, but the small holes in the Nike bands offer more ventilation during sweaty workouts. Existing Nike band color choices for the Apple Watch, Nike+ Black/Cool Grey, Black/Volt (neon yellow), Flat Silver/Volt, Flat Silver/White and Grey/Volt.

As for the watch itself, the differences between the regular and the Nike edition are mostly limited to the Nike+ Run Club app, a custom virtual watch faces, and a little Nike+ symbol above the heart rate sensor on the back.

The new bands go on sale start on 1 June in Nike.com and some Nike retail stores, and they are in the Apple shortly thereafter. They are firmly in the impulse buy category, especially since—if you are a regular runner and Nike’s claims of the strength and flexibility of the ring where it last a lot longer than it takes for you to wear out your pair of matching running shoes.
