The Moto 360 is now ready for your personalized touch with its arrival on Motorola’s Moto Maker.

Just like with the Moto X, you are walked through your customization options before finalizing your purchase. 

You can choose a light, dark, or champagne gold finish for the case (the latter is an extra $30). There are nine bands to choose from, with the metal options adding in $50 in cost to the $249 base price.

You’re also given the choice of which watch face you’ll see when powering it on. Of course, there are plenty of custom Android Wear watch faces to choose from afterwards.

Why this matters: Motorola is banking on its customization options through Moto Maker to make its smartwatch more appealing. We found several flaws with the watch in our original Moto 360 review, though the worst of these (poor battery life) has been addressed in a software update. It’s also getting plenty of competition with a ton of new watches coming out this year, some of which we saw at Mobile World Congress.
