Motorola's Moto 360 Smartwatch to Get Moto Maker Customization Option Soon

In March, Motorola will flip on a new version of Moto Maker, the tool it created to let users design a Moto X to their exact specifications. This time, though, it won't just be for smartphones: Motorola will soon allowing you to customize your own Moto 360 smartwatch.

Users'll be able to choose from three watch casings: silver, black, and champagne gold. Then you'll choose a band, which comes in two sizes, in either leather or metal. (Motorola's careful to not designate the sizes "male" and "female," but that's obviously the idea.)

Lastly, you can select one of 11 watch faces, picking the one that will appear the first time you turn your watch on. There are a couple of new watch faces, and Motorola finally offers the gorgeous single-link band it teased in its first promo video nearly a year ago.

"There's a couple of things here we've been dying to finally get out, for people to buy and wear," says Dickon Isaacs, Motorola's director of design for wearables. The announcement means, right now, is that users can simply combine parts however you want.

What the expanded Moto Maker might mean later is much larger. It might allow Motorola to offer upgrades to its products more quickly, with more customizations. It might allow it to build an Apple Store-like experience online, where you can play with your device before you buy it. It might allow it to flip the upgrade cycle, so that you upgrade each part only as you need to.

Motorola's Moto 360 smartwatch comes at starting price of $249, and was launched in India at Rs. 17,999 in October.
