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 countries included are the U.S., Great Britain, the Netherlands, South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico, Japan, Jamaica, Canada, China, Brazil, Australia, Germany, and France. 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.

Apple has created special bands in the past, most recently debuting rainbow woven nylon bands for the Pride festival in late June.

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.
