Moto 360 users can now strap on fancier leather wristbands

Motorola has started selling a range of premium leather bands for its Android Wear-toting Moto 360 smartwatch.

The fancy bands come in a range of four colours – blue, green, red or tan – and are made by the Dodo brand. They can be nabbed from Moto’s website (via Android Central) from today.

The accessories aren’t cheap though as they’ll come in around $60 (which works out at £40 in proper money).

Motorola currently sells its own standard leather bands in black, grey and cognac colours, but they’re only $30 (around £20). Moto also sells its own stainless steel option for $80, so these new premium options do sit comfortably in between.

The Lenovo-owned company was expected to lead the charge for Android Wear smartwatches late in 2014, but the round-faced Moto 360 flattered to deceive.

With a substandard battery life, an unattractive flat tire-like border around the screen and an expensive price tag, consumers haven’t warmed to the Moto 360.

The firm is already thought to be well advanced in its efforts to produce a more successful sequel. Perhaps we’ll see the Moto 360 2 (Or the Moto One, perhaps?) at MWC in March.
