Apple Creates Country Specific Apple Watch Bands for the Olympics

Apple has created 14 country specific Apple Watch woven nylon bands for the 2016 Olympics. The bands, which were first spotted by GQ, are designed to reflect the national flags of 14 of the major competitors at the games.

The bands are only available at the VillageMall Apple Store in Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The bands are $49 each.

One of the first Olympic athletes to acquire one of the bands is Team USA sprinter Trayvon Bromell, who posted a picture of his band on Twitter.

Why all the sarcasm every time there's a new article on Watch bands? Frankly, you don't know how lucky you are.

In a few years' time when all Watch bands are soldered, you'll look back at these days fondly when you could upgrade the bands yourself.

wow, Amazing innovation right there!

I'm so glad a company as great as Apple was able to come up with something everybody will want to buy. I only wish Samsung or Google has the brain to come up with such an great product.


Can't innovate, my ass

I'll gladly read about Apple Watch bands rather than articles of that stupid Pokemon Go game.

You DO know they can do more than one thing at once. Maybe distract yourself by the latest public betas for ios10 and macOS that came out yesterday.

Apple is the biggest company. surely you're not suggesting they can't both produce new watch bands and innovate consumer electronics?
