According to a source who spoke to PhoneArena, the Moto 360 will be sold through the Moto Maker website, and will launch alongside the Moto X+1 smartphone.

We managed to get our hands on with the Moto 360 at Google I/O last week, where it was announced that there’s still a bit of a wait for the consumer version, much to the disappointment of the keynote attendees.

Although we might have to twiddle our thumbs for another month or two, that’s plenty of time to start planning how you’d like to customize your new smartwatch. A source who spoke with PhoneArena suggests that the Moto 360 will be launching alongside the new Moto X+1 smartphone, with both new devices to be made available through Motorola’s own Moto Maker web store.

Unfortunately, we don’t have the details on exactly what parts of the smartwatch will be customizable, or the range of colors or materials that will be available. From the press releases we can surmise that the Moto 360 will come in black and steel options, and perhaps Motorola will introduce other color options as well. At Google I/O the Moto360 was spotted with a leather strap, and we suspect that Motorola is also looking to offer a metallic option as well. When it comes to the Moto X+1, we imaging that customization options will be along the same line as those available for the existing Moto smartphone range.

There’s still no confirmed date for the official unveiling of the Moto 360 or the X+1, but it can’t be too far away. According to what we heard during the I/O keynote, the Moto 360, and Moto X+1, should be arriving in consumer’s hands later this summer, with rumors hinting at a launch potentially taking place sometime in August.

How would you customize your Moto 360?
