When Apple unveiled its swimproof Apple Watch Series 2, it showed off a special Nike+ edition, which will be available in a choice of four colors. It told us that the price would be the same as the standard version, at $369, but didn’t tell us when it would go on sale.

As French site WatchGeneration spotted, Apple has now updated its website to reveal that the Nike+ edition will go on sale on October 28. It differs from the standard Apple Watch Series 2 in three ways …

Visually, the Nike+ edition offers four combinations of case color and band, including a striking Space Gray case with black/volt (neon yellow) band.

The fluoroelastomer band itself also stands out from the standard sport band thanks to perforations which Apple says are there to reduce weight and improve ventilation.

Finally, you get exclusive Nike watch faces in both digital and analog versions, including a complication to launch the Nike+ Run Club app. The app itself, though, runs on any Apple Watch, and is a free download from iTunes.
