Apple is ringing in Black History Month 2021 with the release of a limited-edition Apple Watch colorway. 

The Black Unity Apple Watch Series 6 is available exclusively via Apple and Target, but if you already own an Apple Watch, you can score the Black Unity Sport Band for just $49 on Amazon. As Forbes reports, the watch will only be available through the end of February, while the sport band should around all year long — however, stock is alreafy fluctuating.

According to Apple, the Black Unity Sport Band was designed by the company's Black creatives and allies and is one of many initiatives within its celebration of Black History Month. The patchwork black, green, and red design is inspired by the Pan-African flag, which the brand says represents the sacrifices made by "generations of men and women whose vision of a more equitable world guides our commitment to overcoming the challenges and indignities that remain today." Each band is made from three pieces of high-performance fluoroelastomer rubber that are hand-assembled in homage to the tradition of quilt-making.
