The Moto X would have been a fine smartphone without any special custom designs: good price, solid performance, Touchless Control – there’s a lot to offer. But the wide variety of user-customizable designs offered though the Moto Maker site really sent this thing into the stratosphere, and we’ve long been waiting to see which future phones might get the same treatment. But what if it’s not a phone at all that’s the next model to get Moto Maker’s attention? The Moto 360 may still be a month or two away, but when it gets here, it might just offer some custom design options of its own.
What you could really customize on a watch? The strap? Sure, that sounds like a strong possibility, and we could get different colors and materials. But seeing as that’s a pretty common way for users to personalize their watches, we wonder if we might be talking about something even more – maybe changing the finish of the watch body itself, or offering a burst of color on the crown? For the moment, there just aren’t a lot of specifics to accompany this rumor.
Beyond that Moto Maker involvement, this source also indicates that the Moto 360 is slated to arrive alongside the Moto X+1 – perhaps the reason that the 360 wasn’t ready to join the other Android Wear models in the Play Store last week. That doesn’t put us a lot closer to knowing a specific date when it might become available, but hopefully some new details arrive as we push further into summer.
