How to: Change Moto 360 Watch Bands

Now that the official watch bands for the Moto 360 are available for individual purchase, we thought it was time for a tutorial on how to swap yours out. Motorola is going to recommend that you head into a jeweler to have the dirty work done, but with a single tool, you can do it yourself within a couple of minutes. It really is that easy.

As a recap, the leather and metal Moto 360 replacement watch bands are now available for $29.99 and $79.99, respectively. The metal bands come in light or dark stainless steel and can be purchased here. The leather bands, made by Horween, come in cognac, black, or stone and can be purchased here.

Moto 360 Individual Leather and Metal Bands Now Available

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.

Video: Asus ZenWatch vs. G Watch R and Moto 360

After running through a quick unboxing of the Asus ZenWatch, it only made sense to follow up with a comparison video of Asus’ premium Android Wear device to the other two smartwatch champions of the moment, the LG G Watch R and Moto 360. Each is outfitted in premium materials, like metals and leathers, but each is certainly different in its own right, whether that be through the quality of those materials used or its price tag.  (more…)

Buy Moto 360 Leather or Metal Individual Watch Bands Right Now From AT&T

Motorola finally made the metal band versions of the Moto 360 available yesterday through their online shop for $299. We were under the impression that when that move happened, early adopters of the Moto 360 would also be able to buy individual watch bands in either metal or different leathers. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, even though Motorola once again mentioned the fact that they planned to sell individual bands at some point in the near future.

Well, guess what? AT&T has them available right now, at suggested retail prices of $80 (metal) and $30 (leather). That’s right, if you want a replacement watch band for your Moto 360, AT&T will sell you one or two or three today in a variety of colors today. (more…)
