Apple has announced that it’s making watch faces and straps available for Apple Watch that represent 22 countries. With the Euro 2020 and Copa America football events ongoing and the Tokyo Olympics due later in the summer, these new watch faces and straps could be popular among sports fans.

The countries which are represented by the International Collection Sport Loop bands, as they’re officially called, are Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The new products are available from Apple starting today with straps coming in two sizes; 40mm and 44mm. Customers buying any of the Sport Loop bands will be set back $49 in the United States or a similar price in other countries. The packaging on the band comes with App Clip functionality which allows you to download the matching Apple Watch Face. Customers can also grab any of the watch faces from and use Face Sharing to send the watch faces to other Apple Watch users.

The watch faces are available on Apple Watch Series 4, Apple Watch SE, and later devices. To use the Face Sharing function to send watch faces to other users, you’ll need to be running iOS 14.3 or later.
