Nike Training Club lands on the Apple Watch

Nike has announced that its Nike Training Club app is now available for the Apple Watch, allowing trainers, athletes, and workout enthusiasts to easily keep track of their drills right from their wrist. The [Nike Training Club app] has been available for the iPhone for a few years, but until now users had to keep their iPhone on-hand in order to use the app as part of their workout routines. Nike Training Club features more than 180 free workouts developed by Nike Master Trainers and elite Nike athletes across a range of disciplines, however Nike has been receiving requests from users around the world to bring the app onto Apple’s wearable, with Nike’s VP Mike McCabe adding that “The resounding feedback from athletes worldwide was that they wanted us to put the best training app onto Apple Watch, and I think we’ve done it in a way that will make it an intuitive and invaluable training tool.” While it seems that the new watchOS app will still need to be used in conjunction with the user’s iPhone, it will now be possible to start a workout on the iPhone and then monitor it on the Apple Watch in order to check things like time or reps remaining on a drill, with the Apple Watch also providing haptic prompts to signal the beginning of each drill. The Nike Training Club app for Apple Watch is available now as an update from the App Store, and supports all of the workouts currently available in the main NTC app.
