Apple is set to start selling new Apple Watch bands to coincide with the Olympic Games — although you’ll have to travel to Brazil to get your hand (well, wrist) on them.

The nylon straps take the form of national flags for all 14 major competitors. They will be going on sale in August, but only from the the VillageMall Apple Store in Barra da Tijuca, and presumably just for the duration of the Olympics.

Check out all 14 of the straps below.

The first sighting of the straps came from the Twitter account of Team USA sprinter Trayvon Bromell, who posted the top image in this story. The straps themselves are going to sell for $49, but they’re sure to go for far, far more than that when they pop up on eBay soon after.

Who knows: if you can bag yourselves a few of them it may be enough to cover your international flight to and from Brazil!
