It wasn't that too long ago, just last month in fact, when Nike announced a fresh new Apple Watch from its NikeLab collection. Pushing its partnership with Apple, it is pushing out new bands for the Apple Watch Nike+ series. These bands, however, have a special trait, aside from their rugged good looks. They are designed to match the color and style of its new line of Air VaporMax running shoes which, in turn, are designed to match the colors of the sky from "Day to Night".
This week the folks at Apple have released a number of new Apple Watch bands. These new bands include new Hermes, Nike Sport, and Striped Woven Nylon bands. The standalone Nike Sport Bands are a new element, coming in standalone models for the first time. All new bands are set to become available today, straight from Apple online.
This little Apple Watch stand turns the device into a vintage Apple Macintosh Classic. It doesn't really make the watch into a functional Macintosh Classic computer fully - it doesn't give the watch an 8 MHz Motorola 68000 processor or anything. But it does make the watch look like it's a display for the Mac Classic while it charges. That's what's most important in this case, anyway.
When the Apple Watch launched, I eagerly bought into the hype and ended up with the wearable on my wrist. It was easily the best wearable I’d ever tried (I’d sampled plenty of Android Wear devices with Nexus handsets ahead of then, and no thanks). Over time, my excitement waned, and the Watch felt a lot like some sort of burden; another device to charge nightly. Now that new MacBooks Pro are here, I’m confident I’ll never buy another Apple Watch.
If you've wanted an Apple Watch but your meaty wrists have made Apple's wearable a no-go, salvation is at hand. A new 42mm Link Bracelet Kit has quietly been added to Apple's online store, offering six extra stainless steel links that can extend the regular strap for those whose wrists are bigger than 205 mm.
