Moto 360 with metal band arrives for $299, alongside new watchfaces and fitness apps
If you’ve been holding out on Motorola‘s Moto 360 until you could score a metal watch band, now is your time. Today, Motorola is making available their first Android Wear smartwatch with metal bands, directly from their website.
The new watch bands come in dark or light metal, and run for $299 in 23mm variants. A slimmer 18mm watchband will also be made available soon, in champagne and light metal. The champagne option will run customers $329, while the smaller light metal variant will still be $299.
What’s more, the company is also making available new watchbands in stone, black, or cognac leather for purchase (hopefully later today). They’ve also partnered with TYLT to make colorful silicone bands, and DODOcase to offer 4 new color options in stitched leather variants. As of now, the new leather, stitched, and silicone options aren’t for sale quite yet, but we’re assuming they will be sometime soon.
Motorola is also adding a few new design tricks to the 360, including a new My Design watch face that allows you to customize everything on the face. Also, they’ve added the winning watch face from the Moto 360 Design face-off. These new faces will be available within the coming days via the Moto Connect app. We should also be seeing some new wellness features like Moto Body, which helps promote a healthier lifestyle by tracking steps, distance, heart rate, and calories, and giving you goals based on the information it collects.
As of now, you can purchase the Moto 360 with 23mm metal bands directly from Motorola.com. We’ll be sure to keep you updated when any of the new bands are available for purchase. Are any of you investing in the newly-styled 360? How are you liking your current one so far? Let us know in the comments!

New metal offerings
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. Starting today, Moto 360 with light and dark metal bands are available on motorola.com for $299. Coming soon, we will offer Moto 360 with new slim bands, which is an option for smaller wrists or people who want a different look. Slim bands will be available in time for the holidays in light metal ($299) and a brand new champagne gold finish ($329).
New accessory bands
Already have a Moto 360? We’ll offer interchangeable stone, black and cognac leather bands along with light and dark metals.

TYLT is working on colorful silicone bands to give you an entirely new look.
New watch faces
Choose from new watch face designs or even create your own. The new My Design watch face option allows you to customize everything from the background image to the style of the tick marks and watch hands. We’ve also added the watch face created by the winner of our Moto 360 Design Face-Off. These new watch face options will be available for all Moto 360 watches through an update on the Moto Connect app1 within the next few days.
