How to download Apple Watch’s new international Stripes faces

Apple introduced new International Collection bands for Apple Watch on Tuesday, priced at $49 each. There are 22 available and each comes with an accompanying Stripes face you can download from Apple’s website.

But you don’t need to buy a band to get your hands on the new faces. We’ll show you how to download them right now to show support for your country at this year’s Summer Olympics.

Here’s the full list of countries supported: 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

The faces are based on the existing Stripes design already available on your Apple Watch, so you could replicate them yourself if you wanted to. But there’s really no need; you can download them all, premade, from Apple’s website for free.

Rilee & Lo Apple Watch Band, Black

I love this watch band, it's super comfortable and it fits perfectly.

Very Good Quality Leather Watch Band

The Monowear Classic is a very good quality watch band that gives your Apple Watch a great look for more formal or dress up occasions. My preference is to have a leather band without colored stitching and with a black stainless steel clasp. This band fits that criteria and provides a secure, classic method of attaching to my wrist.

Function101 Button Remote For Apple TV

I wish I could say something about this item but I have not received it. Pity about the money I spent!

Good morning, Thank you for your review. I have checked the process of your order, and the last update from USPS on September 18, states your package is delayed but still on its way, if this doesn’t change by next week please get back in touch by emailing me at adel@cultofmac.com
Many thanks, Adel.

Good second remote

Apple TV will only connect to one Apple remote, I found out after paying $60 for a second one. This remote worked out of the box and I have had no trouble. It allows my wife to have a remote as well.
