When the Moto 360 launched a few months ago, consumers were stuck with the bands that shipped with the watch. There are third-party solutions, but a good amount of people like to use what is provided by the manufacturer. The demands of many are finally being met as standalone bands for the Moto 360 are now available directly through Motorola. The bands come in leather and metal materials. The leather options include black, stone, and cognac for $29 each. The metal, priced at $79, comes in light finish (silver) and dark finish (black).

Motorola now selling Moto 360 leather and metal bands

Motorola Moto 360 leather and steel bands

There has been expectation that Motorola would eventually offer individual bands for the Moto 360 smartwatch, and that day has arrived with new leather bands, which will run you $30 and metal offerings that come in at $80.

The new bands area available on the Motorola website in various colors to outfit your Android Wear powered circular smartwatch.

Motorola recommends that you take your Moto 360 and your new watch band in to a professional watch repair shop to have your band installed. Normally, we would at least suggest a little do-it-yourself work, but in this case, we’ve seen too many of you requiring warranty replacement for a cracked watch base around the band mounts, best not risk voiding your warranty for something like this.

moto 360 review aa (9 of 9)

The Moto 360 is still one of the better Android Wear smartwatches around. As a full circular design, it is also a one of a kind. That unique nature continues inside the watch as well, unfortunately, in that the Moto 360 is equipped with a Texas Instruments processor, instead of the Snapdragon 400 you’ll find in most other Android Wear devices.

Be sure to check out our Motorola Moto 360 review if you would like to know more about the watch that belongs to these new bands.

To get your hands on the new bands, head on over to the Motorola website where you’ll find the leather band in black, stone or cognac for $29.99 and the stainless steel band in a light or dark finish for $79.99.

What do you think, are any of these bands going to land on your wrist?

Individual leather or metal watch bands for the Moto 360 are now available through Motorola’s online store. As was previously announced, the leather bands cost $29.99 each and the metal bands cost $79.99 each.

For leather, you are looking at options of cognac (brown), black, or stone. For metal, you can choose either light or dark finishes, both of which are stainless steel. The metal bands have a butterfly clasp, tri-link design, and again, are made of solid stainless steel of the “highest quality.” The leather comes from Horween, a tannery in the United States.

To swap out watch bands, Motorola recommends that you take the watch into a jeweler.

Posted by wicked November - 26 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

motorola_the_maker_nov14_commercial

The most unique thing about the Moto X is its customization. The handset is available in various colors and materials to truly make it your own. To promote the Moto Maker production approach, Motorola released a commercial titled “The Maker.” A man sits down in front of his computer and gets right to work designing his Moto X. On the other end is a Motorola employee assembling the device. The customer goes back and forth between colors, engravings, and more as the Motorola employee moves swiftly to create the tailored handset. The end product is a well-made, self-satisfying Moto X.

Deal: Verizon Moto X (1st Gen) Developer Edition for $219

Posted by Kellex November - 26 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Need another phone deal to take you into Thanksgiving? How about Verizon’s Moto X (1st gen) Developer Edition in brand new condition for just $219? This is the phone that we called the best Android phone of 2013, plus it has the “developer edition” tag attached, which gives you an unlocked bootloader and a custom colorway.

Again, the device is brand new, has 32GB of storage, runs a “pure” version of Android, should see Android 5.0 “Lollipop” before long, and works on Verizon’s network. If you need a phone to tinker with, a cheap replacement while you get something newer, or just like last year’s Moto X, this isn’t a bad deal to jump on.

This deal also includes free shipping.

Motorola’s fun new ad highlights MotoMaker

Posted by wicked November - 26 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

In real life, customized Moto X devices are assembled in a highly efficient factory in Texas (or more likely China, since Motorola announced it’s winding down its American facility). A miracle of logistics, this process allows customers to pick from thousands of combinations and get their very own Moto X in a matter of day.

In the whimsical world of Motorola’s new ad, MotoMaker is one guy and his mad-scientist tools, handcrafting Moto X’s on the whims of his customer alter ego. Enjoy!

The Best Two Black Friday and Cyber Monday Smartphone Deals

Posted by wicked November - 26 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

oneplus_MotorolaThis Friday is fast approaching, and you might be waiting not-so-patiently to get your hands on a brand new smartphone. The bad news is most smartphone “deals” come with a pricey two year contract, data caps, and “valuable upgrade plans” like AT&T’s Next or Verizon’s Edge. The worse news is the Nexus 6 is $300 more than last year’s Nexus 5, so you won’t be finding a deal there. The good news is that both the Motorola Moto X and the OnePlus One will be either on sale or for sale, respectively, this weekend.

Motorola’s Moto X is a popular 2014 device, and deserves all of it’s notoriety. $500 is really a good deal for what you’re getting: a 5.2″ 1080p screen, Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a customizable look all combine to make the Moto flagship quite the deal. However, to improve the value even more, Cyber Monday will drop the price even more to $360 for the 16 GB version and $410 for the  32 GB version, bothe unlocked. Definitely keep your eyes peeled for this deal. I was too slow last year for Motorola’s similar deal with the 1st Gen Moto X.

The OnePlus One is the myth and the legend when it comes to 2014 smartphones. The device has been invitation only for most of the year, and when there were ways to get invitations, it usually went south. But OnePlus is a small, young company with big ideas and a great product, and this weekend is its chance to show it. The device will be for sale to anyone for three days. The 16 GB version will be $300 and the 64 GB will be $350. The device features much of the same specs as the Moto X, but with a larger screen, more RAM, and a better front camera.

If you want certain quality, your best bet is probably the Moto X. If you’re more of a risk taker that likes to experiment with tech, go with the OnePlus One. Either way, comment here and let us know what you decide to do!
