Soon after launching iPhone cases made from sneaker soles, Nike today announced the launch of four new Apple Watch bands. The new bands have been coupled with a new shoe launch from Nike. The new Nike Sport Band colors for the Apple Watch have been designed to match the company’s new Air VaporMax Flyknit “Day to Night” running shoe collection.
Nike is marketing these new bands for the Apple Watch Nike+ but given that there’s no major difference between that variant and others, the bands will be compatible with almost every other Apple Watch model.
All of the four new bands will be sold through Nike’s online and retail stores starting June 1st. Apple and its resellers will have then in stock as well early next month. They’re going to cost $49 each.
This is a result of the expanding partnership between Apple and Nike. The Nike+ Watch, launched in 2016, was a major step forward in this partnership. The co-branded NikeLab watch was launched earlier this year in April.
We can expect both companies to continue this partnership in the months to come and launch more products that bring out the best in their own products. Nike fans can keep their fingers crossed for more in the future.
