The Apple Watch Series 5 Nike edition officially launches today — and Apple already appears to be selling out of some popular variants.
Apple Watch Nike models should begin showing up at various retail locations starting today. Customers who preordered the device will also start seeing their shipments arriving. But if you haven’t ordered one already and you have a specific model in mind, you may want to act fast.
Apple Watch Shipping Estimates
Shipping estimates for specific variants and color options are already beginning to slip on Apple’s website. Some of the most popular case/band pairings are already seeing estimated arrival dates up to 9 to 10 weeks out.
As of the writing of this article, that appears to include many of the colorful Nike Sport Band and Sport Loop options. The black band options, on the other hand, are still showing delivery estimates next week.
It’s worth noting that Nike is also selling the Apple Watch Nike directly on its website. So if your model is selling out quick on Apple.com, you may want to try your luck at the sportswear brand’s site. As an added bonus, Nike also offers some exclusive bands options.
There’s also a good chance that the more popular models will still be available at brick-and-mortar outlets. You’ll also have the opportunity to try out different case and band options in-store with the new Apple Watch Studio.
As an added note, you can check in-store available at Apple retail locations by checking if the specific model you want offers a “Today” option under Pickup.
Apple Watch Nike
The Apple Watch Nike itself is a special edition Apple Watch Series 5 that comes with exclusive band options, watch faces and Nike Run Club integration.
It also features all the new additions that standard Series 5 models have, including an always-on display, built-in compass and international emergency services calling for cellular variants.
This year, the Apple Watch Nike only appears to be available in aluminum case options, however. That means you won’t be able to spring for the new titanium or ceramic case options (at least at launch).
The GPS-only Apple Watch Nike starts at $399 for the 40mm case and $429 for the 44mm case. GPS + Cellular models start at $499 and $529, respectively.
