Apple will release Olympic-themed Apple Watch bands, but only in Brazil



Apple is gearing up for the summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro like everyone else in the world, and the company’s contribution is a little something special: limited edition nylon Apple Watch bands that pay tribute to 14 competing nations.

Unfortunately, you can’t buy them anywhere Apple Watches are sold, or even order them online. Apple is selling these special straps only in Brazil, in just one store: the VillageMall Apple Store in Barra de Tijuca. That means if you happen to be in Rio to catch the games and pick up one of these Olympic-themed bands, which will retail for $49, you could probably make a killing by reselling what is likely to be a sought-after collectible (or you could just wear it around and show your love of country or something).
