With Apple Watch Series 2, Apple unequivocally began pulling a health and aptness advantages of wearing a device. The association even announced a partnership with Nike during a iPhone eventuality final month, though runners had to wait to obstacle a special book of a Series 2. The Nike-branded Apple Watch Series 2 is finally arriving in stores this Friday, Oct. 28.

If Apple’s watch sales don’t rebound, it signals that people only don’t wish an iPhone on their wrist.
