Apple has teamed up with American sporting goods manufacturer Nike and French high-end fashion luxury goods firm Hermès to produce sporty and fashionable Apple Watch Series 2 models.

Following the launch of Apple Watch Series 2 models in California, the Cupertino, California-based tech company also unveiled Wednesday the two Apple Watch models that were produced in partnership with Nike and Hermès.

The Apple Watch Nike+ uses a perforated Nike Sports band that provides better ventilation and sweat management for runners, swimmers and other athletic users. The Nike Sport band comes in four vibrant, two-tone colour combinations Black-Volt, Black-Cool Gray, Flat Silver-White and Flat Silver-Volt.

On the other hand, Apple Watch Hermès comes in elegant handcrafted leather bands. Made with fashion trendsetters in mind, the Apple Watch Hermès collection includes a double buckle cuff in swift and Epsom calfskin leathers and a new single tour deployment buckle band with calfskin leather. The single tour style features a hidden deployment buckle that opens with a click of two side buttons. An Apple Watch Hermès comes with an exclusive Hermès sports band in signature orange colour.

Both Apple Watch Nike+ and Apple Watch Hermès feature the new generation of Apple Watches that are built on a dual-core processor and equipped with built-in GPS, heart rate sensor, breathe app and other Apple and third-party health apps. Apple Watch Series 2 comes in 38- and 42-millimetre models that are both water resistant of up to 50 metres.
