Support your country at this year’s Summer Olympics with one of Apple’s new International Collection bands for Apple Watch. Each one is priced at $49 and comes with a matching, downloadable watch face.

You can order yours today, exclusively from Apple. (If you only want the Stripes watch face for your country, you can download that now for free.)

Apple regularly refreshes its Apple Watch band lineup to give fans new ways to switch up their look. And with the Tokyo Olympics right around the corner, the new International Collection is right on time.

It consists of 22 limited-edition bands that represent the nations competing at this year’s event. All are based on the Sport Loop, which is made up of soft, breathable, and lightweight woven nylon.
