Why We Like It – APPLE WATCH SERIES 5 NIKE+ EDITION

With extra emphasis on fitness compared to the regular apple watch series 5 watches, the new apple watch nike features the same apps as the series 5 watches with an extra workout app or two, and there’s also a new feature called the Blood Oxygen app.

Pros
  • Breathable bands
  • Low power consumption
  • Same specifications as the apple watch series 5 watches
Cons
  • Expensive for just a cosmetic customization
  • Is available in aluminum casing only

Performance

The Nike editions have the same specifications of the regular series 5 apple watches with a few extra additions. Inherited from the regular apple watch series 5 watches are the fall detection, Always-on Retina Display, GPS, and other features. There’s also a new feature called Blood Oxygen that measures the wearer’s blood oxygen. It has a battery life of about 18 hours which is the same as the apple watch series 2, and it has a faster processing speed compared to the apple watch series 3 watches.

Design

For fans of Nike inc., these watches easily let customers know that they’re the result of Apple collaborating with Nike, as they flaunt the signature Nike logo. The sport band has small holes in them for breathability, and come in 2 colors at a time, with the primary color covering most of the band, and the secondary color for the edges of the holes. However, the stainless steel casing is not available, meaning it’s easier for the watch to break in ways other than the screen.

Value

The customer is basically paying for the sport band, Nike branding, at least one Nike exclusive watch face, and the two extra apps. While the band is about $49 by itself, the hefty boost in price is mainly due to the watches having the nike branding. Unless the customer is that big of a fan of the Nike company, a regular series 5 watch is a better alternative as it costs about $100 less.

APPLE WATCH SERIES 5 NIKE+ EDITION Wrap Up

Aside from the overall appearance and the three additional workout apps known as nike run, the health app, and blood oxygen, it’s the same as the apple watch series 5 watch. However, it’s because it’s a series 5 watch with extra features and a breathable band that it’s the best smartwatch for workouts.
