New Moto 360 images show different watchbands and build

New Moto 360 images show different watchbands and build
We've already gotten a relatively good look at the Moto 360 smartwatch, or at the very least we've seen more of it than the LG G Watch. Of course, as we've seen from the G Watch pics, there's a good reason why Motorola wants to show off its efforts more than LG does. Now, we're getting to see the Moto 360 in more detail, including the different watchband options.

Motorola has said a number of times that it has learned from its work on the MOTOACTV in building the 360 and that shows through in a number of ways. The 360 is much sleeker and refined, of course that might be expected in the difference between a device designed for sport use and one aiming to be a fashion statement. It also looks like there might be some customization options for the Moto 360 hardware beyond the band, because the back plate is made of colored plastic. 

Another interesting thing is that from the pictures, it appears that the plunger on the side of the 360 can turn, just like a classic watch. Motorola has said that it is trying to design a device that will feel at home for those who love wristwatches, but it's hard to glean what a smartwatch would gain from having a winding plunger on the side.

I don't give a damn about the price of this piece of heaven, but I am surely getting this no matter what. This and the fit will complete my gadget collection, hopefully.

Will it be a standalone or does it need to connect to an Android to function? It's beautiful...

All Android Wear devices require an Android device to function as far as we know. There may be an iOS app eventually though, but for sure none of the smartwatches will be able to function alone.

Obviously it will function without an Android device, as it is just a watch. But the smart features will require an Android device paired so you get notifications and the from it.

Damn that looked nice! I love swiss watches and always thinks Samsung and Sony smartwatches is not appealing to me. But Moto's design is for sure something for me to look into when it is released.

Fossil has already committed to making Android Wear devices.

Yep, good move by them, Smart Watches probably will not scare top watch makers like rolex, breatling, monblanc etc... but they maybe take a slice of the lower base of the pyramid like Fossil, Armani, etc... Thats why join android wear is a good choice by Fossil

For this to be successful it has to be cheaper than the best budget phone which at the current moment is the moto g/lumia 525. Also where is the charging port. I can't seem to find any port at all

Motorola executives have said there's a "secret charging method". Probably wireless charging.
