Apple launches new ‘International Collection’ Apple Watch bands and faces
Apple has announced the launch of 22 new limited-edition Apple Watch Sport Loop bands with matching colorful watch faces to celebrate “the indescribable drive and competitive spirit of all athletes and fans” from around the world.
Available starting today, the new Apple Watch Sport Loop bands, priced at $49 (US), 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.
Apple says the new bands are “soft, breathable, and lightweight.” The matching watch faces, available for the Apple Watch Series 4, Apple Watch SE, and later, can be downloaded using the band’s packaging, which features App Clip functionality. They can then be shared to other Apple Watch users via Face Sharing.
The International Collection Sport Loop comes in 22 colorful designs representing nations across the globe, each with a downloadable matching watch face. Soft, breathable, and lightweight, it features a hook-and-loop fastener for quick and easy adjustment. The double-layer nylon weave has dense loops on the skin side that provide soft cushioning while allowing moisture to escape. On the reverse side, the attachment loops are securely anchored for superior durability.
