Oh, Nike, – really?!
A company with such rich history of innovation surely could have tried harder to gain and preserve its strategic positioning in this space?
I do see why Nike would want to not be in the hardware business themselves and instead partner with companies who do hardware better, I do. Yet, I can’t help feeling just a little bit disappointed that they seemingly decided against trying to capture more, rather than less, of the wearable market.
A little bit less happy with all of my Nike sports gear today.
