Regular visitors to Motorola’s Moto Maker website know that it has thus far been dedicated for customizing Motorola smartphones; but that is about to change according to Wired. The Wired reports that users will now be able to pick from different options that are also available for the Moto 360. They will now be able to mix and match different options instead of “Black case with leather band” for example.

You will also be able to pick from three watch casings of silver, black, and champagne gold. You will choose a band that comes in two sizes-leather or metal. Finally, you will be able to select one of 11 watch faces; selecting the one that appears the first time your watch is turned on.

Everyone and not the least Motorola have been looking forward to a moment like this despite the fact that it has taken a while to get to this point. Speaking to Wired, the company’s director of design for wearables Dickon Isaacs said: “There’s a couple of things here we’ve been dying to finally get out, for people to buy and wear.”

While this may not immediately convince a lot of pessimists, it will certainly encourage those who are yet to make up their minds on buying it as parts can now be combined to reflect your choice. It does offer much to the consumer in terms of choice of colour and parts; and that is innovative and could like I said earlier encourage some people out there.

This is the early stage of the Moto Maker, but it does appears from the look of things that it is the start of bigger things as upgrades to its products might come more quickly, and of course, more options in terms of customizations.

Perhaps, Moto Maker is edging towards something that looks more like what customers are used to on Apple Store where they are allowed to play with their device before they buy. Things like are not exactly too clear at the moment, but something more exciting appears to be in the offing. Life is all about choice, people are allowed the freedom to choose from an array of parts, colors, and a lot more to customize their smartwatch.

Whatever is up the company’s sleeves, it does appear that customers are in for exciting times ahead. No official statement has yet been made on pricing and updates.
