The Apple Watch International Collection Launches Ahead of the Summer Olympics

The Apple Watch remains the de facto standard when it comes to smart wearables, something we’d credit not only to the diversity of features added with every new iteration, but also in no small part due to the amount of fashionable options Apple and partners continually offer. Because let’s be honest, most people don’t necessarily need to wear an Apple Watch, but plenty of users want to. The newly announced Apple Watch International Collection appeals to the latter of those two motives, a colorful selection of 22 limited-edition Sport Loop bands representing nations from across the globe ahead of the Summer Olympics.

Every one of the 22 limited edition Sport Loop bands includes a matching downloadable Stripes watch face to complete the color combinations and boldly show their country support. Countries represented in the collection include: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and the U.S..

The International Collection Apple Watch Sport Loop bands are available in 40mm and 44mm sizes for $49 (US), and the packaging includes App Clip functionality to easily download the matching country’s Stripes Apple Watch face.
