THE SITUATION: For runners who like to take advantage of the newest technology from Apple, the partnership between the technology giant and Nike has produced an excellent watch that does everything you expect from a GPS sports watch. With the Apple Watch Nike+ Series 2, you’ll get real-time monitoring of your speed and distance, along with waterproof construction that’s nice in bad weather or while you’re doing laps in the pool. Setup is easy because the watch works with your Apple phone to provide instructions and walk you through every step.

You can create goals and get all kinds of real-time data during your run or workout. Heart-rate monitoring is available, and you can download music from your phone to your watch and run with a pair of Bluetooth headphones to easily enjoy tunes on a run.
