Just in time for the Holiday season, Motorola has started selling individual leather and metal bands for the Moto 360 on its web store in the United States. The Lenovo owned company is charging $30 for the Horween leather band in grey, black or silver, with the metal band coming in a steep $80.

The metal band is available in black or silver finish, and is made of stainless steel. As Motorola states, the steel band has a “butterfly clasp [that] complements a modern, contemporary, tri-link design.” Motorola recommends that you head over to your nearest jewelery store for assistance in replacing the band from your smartwatch.

The Moto 360 supports the widely 22mm watch bands, so you can always buy watch bands at a slightly cheaper price from eBay or your local store, and replace them manually.

The leather bands for the Moto 360 have not received glowing reviews, and have been criticized for their poor build quality. Thus, if you were looking to buy them, I’d recommend you to look at other options from third party OEMs. It was only earlier this month that Motorola started selling the Moto 360 in gold color for $329 in the United States.
