Gold Moto 360 appears and quickly vanishes

Gold Moto 360 appears and quickly vanishes
Right now, the Moto 360 is available in silver and black, but there may be another option on the way. Motorola may have just accidentally shown off an unannounced model of the Moto 360, one that appeared to be either made of gold or at least is gold-plated. The image was accidentally posted to Motorola's website.

As you can see below, there are five Moto 360 watch faces shown - two silver, two black, and then there's the one in the middle of the top row, which is clearly gold. Android Police contacted Motorola for a comment on the matter, which led to the second image, where the gold Moto 360 disappeared from the image, but the layout was retained for a few minutes before being redone into the last image below. Motorola didn't directly confirm that there will be a gold 360 on the way, but did say: 


That sounds to us like a pretty standard "you caught us, but we're not going to officially confirm anything" response from Motorola. We'll have to wait and see if the gold is true solid gold, or just plated, and whether the material will bring a premium price.

I just want the silver looking one to back on sale again. The black one is nice, but I like the silver trim version better.

It doesn't seem to be clearly gold to me. It's not yellow as pure gold, it's not copper-like like rose gold and it obviously isn't white gold. Save for the color rendition of my screen, it might as well be bronze, a metal that some luxury watchmakers have been using lately because its appearance changes as it gains a patinas.

Oh you can tell that from a rendering of a frame? Wow you can probably spot which building is made of reinforced concrete and which one is built with standard concrete from a mile away.

Even with great design, it doesn't fell right with old internal packed on moto, battery life that can't last a day if you push it hard, problem on screen. it make me doubt in motorola capability, I fell safer with lg or samsung smartwatch they always the first to get a hold on latest tech also better quality control on their product.

If you put a white background on the display, it looks terrible as it's not a full circle. Rather have a complete rectangle (i.e. Gear S) than an incomplete circle.
