Apple has launched the International Collection bands for Apple Watch. In a newsroom post, the Cupertino-based tech giant said that it is launching the new bands to “celebrate the indescribable drive and competitive spirit of all athletes and fans.”
The 22 limited edition Sport Loop bands with colourful designs represent those nations across the globe. Each band also features a matching downloadable Stripes watch face showcasing colour combinations that customers around the world can use to personalise their Apple Watch and show their country support.
The International Collection Sport Loop bands are available representing the following countries: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, and the US.
Available starting today, the International Collection Apple Watch Sport Loop bands are available in 40mm and 44mm sizes for $49. While the bands do not include India in the list of 22 countries, they are available on Apple’s online store for Rs 3,900.
The new bands have been launched just before the Tokyo Olympics that are set to take place next month. The Stripes watch faces will be available to download soon for all users with the Apple Watch Series 4 or later.
Before the 2016 Olympics in Brazil, Apple had launched similar limited-edition bands. However, back then, the bands were sold only in Brazil and not anywhere else across the world.
