New Macs aren’t the only new products on the horizon for Apple this week.

Apple revealed today that the Nike+ edition of the Apple Watch Series 2 will be available in over 41 countries starting Friday. More countries will get supply during the weekend. But if you want to buy a Nike+ band for the Apple Watch you already own, you’re out of luck.

“Apple Watch Nike+, runners will be even more motivated to achieve their performance goals,” said Apple COO Jeff Williams in a statement today. “The response so far has been incredible and we’re thrilled to get Apple Watch Nike+ onto customers’ wrists starting Friday.”

The Nike+ version comes with all the same features as the Apple Watch Series 2 that launched in September. Buyers get access to four exclusive Nike Sport Band color combinations that won’t be available for sale individually.
