    Interesting, considering I’ve seen gorgeous full-page adds for the Samsung Galaxy watch in rose gold in every major fashion magazine in the last two weeks. If I was Nike, I’d be riding on the coat tails of that massive advertising campaign and offering a complementary product to scoop up a bit of market share in the band biz.
