According to Phandroid a champagne gold version of Motorola will be made available in 18mm and 23mm watchband sizes. The metal strap will cost around $300 and a leather band version, called "cognac", will cost around $50 less.
As previously mentioned in "Until Now, All Smart Jewellery that glitters hasn't been gold", for wearables to be taken seriously by the mass market, they need to not only look good, but be constructed with high quality materials. This is surely the reason why Moto is launching this, more exclusive, new version which is squarely aimed at fashion-minded consumers.
Although it has a step counter and heart rate monitor, and does a beautiful job of operating Google's elegant OS; Android Wear, one major niggle remains. Why does the interface not cover the entire fascia? There is a dark strip at the bottom of the screen which is just annoying. For people who are concerned with aesthetics and detail, such as those that Motorola are trying to entice, this could be a problem. Apple Watch anyone?
