Jamaica is a very random choice
I mean, they send 56 athletes to the Summer Olympics (and at least 4 to the winter ;))... for a tiny island nation of 2.7M, that's significant.

Those are terrible bands.

For comparison, look at how well Apple incorporates multiple colours in the new pride band below.

These new bands would be overpriced at $2.
