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.

4. Nike clock faces are cool but limiting

The Nike+ edition comes with two exclusive Nike clock faces, one "digital" and one "analog," and you can customize their styles. I prefer the digital face, with its large numerals.

Both faces include a complication (or shortcut) to the Nike+ Run Club app, which comes preloaded on the Apple Watch Nike+. Unfortunately, you can only add three more complications per Nike face compared to, say, Apple's modular face, which lets you choose as many as five complications. Also, all the Nike faces only come in three colors: white, "volt" (neon yellowish green), and white with volt.
