The Moto 360 is one of the most loved smartwatches in the market today. And it seems like Motorola could be looking to leverage its popularity by introducing the ability to customize the device using its user friendly Moto Maker tool. This site was launched with the first gen Moto X in 2013 and allows users to customize the smartphone with a range of accent colors, back panel etc.
If these reports are true, we’ll be curious to see how this works on a smartwatch like the Moto 360 and if there will be any extra charge levied on the customers. Moto Maker is free of cost for smartphones, but things might be slightly different with something like a wearable.
When asked about this, the COO of Motorola Mobility, Rick Osterloh said – “Could be. We have no major announcements in this area, but I think your intuition is very good. We consider this to be the power alley of our strategy. We’re driving toward consumer choice because we think as these become more personal devices, this becomes increasingly important.”
Deduce what you can from that, but he certainly hasn’t ruled it out as of yet. Perhaps we could see this feature being implemented with the second gen Moto 360 which should arrive sometime next year.
