Smartwatches aren’t ordinarily known for their stunning good looks, but the Moto 360 has always bucked the trend. Now they’re introducing more designs for the watch including additions with metal straps in a range of grey tones.
The new metal finishes will offer a more premium feel, something which seems to be a second thought to most smartwatch manufacturers. Motorola are also said to have promised a Moto 360 with slimmer metal straps to be released soon.
The range of light and dark grey Moto 360’s will set you back around $299 each; while the more lavish amongst you may prefer a champagne gold finish, but that will also come with a champagne price tag of $329.
In a statement Motorola explained “Moto 360 now comes with metal bands that are as durable as they are beautiful. Crafted from aircraft-grade stainless steel, these bands feature a modern, contemporary tri-link design that complements the round face of Moto 360,”
Other straps are already available for the Moto 360. Currently available are straps in stone, black and cognac leather. If you already have a Moto 360 and wanted a fancy new strap for it, Motorola have that covered too; on their website you can purchase their light and dark metal straps if that’s more your thing.
Straps aren’t the only thing new in the Moto world. There is also a software update coming its way too. The update will include new customisation features for the watch face such as changing the background image, tick mark styles and watch hand designs as well as other features. All in all this means the whole watch will be customisable to suit you.
Primarily designed as a fitness monitoring device with its heart rate monitors and tracking features aimed at fitness fanatics; it wouldn’t be surprising if the smartwatch was adopted by other people too simply due to Motorola’s care an attention when it comes to its aesthetics.
