APPLE WATCH NIKE+
From £369, apple.com/uk
This updated version of the original Apple Watch does a great deal more than just pay lip service to fitness functionality – it will appeal to those who want their smartwatch to run their life
and their training.
built-in GPS offers speed, distance, time, pace and calorieburn data customisable training screens wrist-based heartrate measurement features multisport functionality, including swimming metrics waterproof to 50m lightweight, rugged sport strap with ventilation holes syncs to Nike+ Run Club training app optional periodic voice updates on run data
Apple has produced a smartwatch that is definitely fit for purpose when it comes to running training. It won’t give you detailed metrics but the GPS lock-on is almost instantaneous and it never drops out because the watch constantly searches for Wi-fi signals when you’re running. We measured the training-data accuracy against more traditional devices and it was spot on, while the brighter screen, longer battery life and more sensitive darkscreen functionality (the watch snoozes until you turn your wrist inwards) are all far better than they were on its predecessor.
