Why you should buy Apple's Nike smartwatch instead of Watch Series 2

The Apple Watch Nike+ has all of the same features as the standard Apple Watch Series 2, plus a few extras for runners. The Nike version of Apple's smartwatch is also both easy on the eyes and easy to use, but it may not be a good fit for serious marathoners.

1. Nike+ perforated Apple Watch band is awesome

The Nike+ edition of Apple Watch Series 2 comes with one of four different perforated fluoroelastomer bands. The bands are only available with Apple Watch Nike+, and they're not sold separately.

Thanks to the holes in the band, the overall weight of the watch is slightly less than other versions. The perforations also let sweaty wrists "breathe" more easily. They look pleasingly sporty, too. (I bought the Space Gray aluminum model with the black and cool gray sport band.)
