Gold Moto 360 smartwatch teased by Motorola

Motorola has teased its future smartwatch plans, with the manufacturer teasing the upcoming arrival of a gold Moto 360.

With the round faced smartwatch set to be made in both silver and black metal frames at launch, a promo image has prematurely popped up on the company’s official website showing off a third, gold, colour scheme.

Although the teasing image has since been replaced by one lacking the gold timepiece, the premature unveiling is a sign of intent from the Moto G maker. The gold Moto 360 (top centre) has been shown alongside the existing colour options.

While yet to officially discuss plans for a gold Moto 360, following the leak, Motorola told AndroidPolice that it is “exploring new materials”.

“Although we can’t comment on gold specifically, we’re always exploring new materials and we intend to provide Moto 360 in a selection of styles in the future,” an official Motorola spokesperson stated.

Last week Apple announced its first entry into the wearable space, the eagerly awaited Apple Watch.

Set to launch in 2015, the Apple Watch will land in three distinct styles, including the Apple Watch Edition which will be crafted from 18-Karat gold.

The Moto 360 will launch in the UK in the coming weeks. The Samsung Gear S rival will set wannabe owners back £199 and come running Google’s Android Wear OS.
