Motorola launches Moto Maker for the Moto 360 smartwatch

Motorola launches Moto Maker for the Moto 360 smartwatch
Starting today (one day after Apple announced all there is to know about its Watch), folks in the US who want to buy a Moto 360 smartwatch can customize it with Motorola's Moto Maker service, which was previously available only for smartphones.

You have the option to choose between different cases (dark finish, light finish, or champagne gold finish), bands (leather or metal, in various finishes), and watch faces (11 of them in total).

Prices for a Moto 360 customized with Moto Maker start at $249.99, and can go up to $329.99, because the champagne gold finish costs an extra $30, while bands made out of metal are an extra $50. All in all, although the variety of colors and finishes isn't abundant, anyone can probably find a combination to suit them.

Introduced last year as the world's first smartwatch with a circular display (though not fully circular), the Motorola Moto 360 seems to be the best-selling Android Wear device thus far. Have you bought one? Or do you plan to get one at some point? If you do, reading our Moto 360 review will let you know more about the device.

This is excellent! This is my choice for the current Android Wear devices. Unfortunately, I am a cross platform user, using iOS, Android and Windows Phone so I went with the Microsoft Band. I hope that Google adds support for iOS and Windows Phone with future Android Wear updates.

I went with the black moto360 and couldn't be happier but I thought about the Microsoft band.

Once you play with a 360 you get bored after using it for an hour...its impressive the first 20-30 mins, but looses appeal once have it for long periods of time.

After one year from the announcement and after 6 months from commercialization, only in the U.S. and when we expect a new model in 6 months... companies that wish to compete with Apple should do much better than this.
