Limited Edition Olympic Apple Watch nylon bands to be available in Rio only
Soon to be available only from Barra da Tijuca's VillageMall Apple Store, the company will be offering special Olympic nylon bands for the Apple Watch. The store is just a 15-minute drive from Barra Olympic Park. At the store starting next month, you'll find the straps with the colors of 14 different countries such as Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Jamaica, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa and the U.S.A.

The bands will be offered for $49 apiece, and are available for a limited time only. The straps are sure to become a collector's item not only because they are available for a short period of time, but also because you can only find them in this one Apple Store. One athlete, U.S. sprinter Trayvon Bromell, has already been photographed wearing the U.S.A. band on his Apple Watch.

You can check out images of all 14 bands by clicking on the slideshow below. The Rio Olympics will run from August 8th through August 21st.

So that's what Jony Ive has been up to rather than working on the iPhone 7... Yay.

50 bucks? That's more like a rip-off (no pun intended).
