Apple hasn’t released a special edition strap for the Apple Watch for a long time. In a summer, full of sporting events such as the European Championship, the America’s Cup and the Olympic Games, Apple could not let these sporting events escape to launch a new range of straps, straps that are accompanied by spheres.
Apple has announced the new Apple Watch Collection International Collection, a set of 22 nylon sports loop bands. Each of the bands represents a country. In the case that interests us, we find Spain and Mexico as the only countries represented (probably because they are the only two Spanish-speaking countries where Apple has a physical presence).
According to Apple, this new strap collection allows us to celebrate “the indestructible drive and competitive spirit of all athletes and fans.”
The sports Loop bands of the International Collection, it is a limited edition, they are soft, breathable and light they are available in representation of 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 United States.
In the statement where she made this announcement, Amy Van Dyken, a 6-time Olympic swimming medalist, talks about how she uses the Apple Watch when she exercises with her wheelchair.
Each of the 22 straps is priced at 49 euros, they are available in sizes 40 and 44 mm (so they are compatible with all Apple Watch that Apple has launched on the market since the first generation), they are available through the Apple Store and directly through the online store. The spheres that accompany these straps can be downloaded through a printed clip on the box packaging.
