Swim Tracking

Count laps, auto-detect stroke and track average lap pace with Apple Watch Series 2. They’ve put these devices to the test and have proven to withstand consistent swimming, perfect for everyday laps.


The original model lacked GPS tracking, which is a huge downfall to runners. With a smartwatch that can do just about everything you’d think you could go on a run without having to carry your phone. Your wish. Apple’s command. The Series 2 Apple Watch now comes complete with GPS tracking. Finally.

Apple Watch Nike+

Nike and Apple joined forces to create Apple Watch Nike+ edition for every athlete. It comes with a sporty new look in space gray and silver aluminum with four different band color options including Black/Volt, Black/Cool Gray, Flat Silver/White and Flat Silver/Volt.
