Moto Maker customizations for the Motorola Moto 360 are now live, allowing interested customers to design their own smartwatch to better suit their tastes and preferences.

Motorola originally launched its Moto Maker website with the first-generation Moto X, drawing lots of interest among consumers. The first Moto X came with mid-range specifications on board, but the unprecedented and unparalleled customization options it offered made it a great success.

The company has since added more devices to the Moto Maker website and the Moto 360 smartwatch is now invited to the party as well. The Moto 360 already proved to be among the most popular Android Wear smartwatches due to its classical, round-shaped form factor and neat specs and features. The ability to customize the smartphone is now expected to make it even more successful.

As a reminder, the Moto 360 sports a 1.56-inch circular backlit display with a resolution of 320 x 390 and a pixel density of 205 ppi, complete with Gorilla Glass 3 protection for extra scratch resistance. Under the hood, the smartwatch packs a TI OMAP 3 processor paired with 512MB of RAM. Other specs and features include 4GB of internal storage capacity, a slew of sensors including a pedometer and a heart rate monitor (PPG), as well as IP67 certification for dust and water resistance. The gadget runs Google's Android Wear platform and supports wireless charging.

Moto Maker now allows users to choose from various colors for the Moto 360 watch case, as well as different wristbands (leather or metal in various colors) and watch faces. In total, customization options include three case finishes, nine bands, and 11 watch faces.

"Choose from three case finishes: dark metal, light metal or champagne gold. Then pick one of nine bands, including leather, metal, and our new mono-link design, a modern take on the classic metal band style. Complete your design by choosing one of 11 watch faces. Once you get your watch, it's easy to swap watch faces from our collection or through Google Play," Motorola touted in an official company blog post.

It's worth pointing out, however, that while the Moto 360 comes with a $250 price tag, these customizations will add an extra charge that varies depending on what you choose.
