Many of us had hoped that Motorola would talk in detail about the much awaited Moto 360 smartwatch at Google I/O 2014 but that didn’t happen. Even though other Android Wear smartwatches from LG and Samsung went live for pre-order, it was said that the Moto 360 will be made available later this summer. No one knows exactly when that is going to happen, but a new report claims that Moto Maker customization options will be offered for the smartwatch as well.

Motorola unveiled Moto Maker last year as part of its Moto X announcement. Its an online customization studio that lets customers put their personal touches to the device. It is also possible to purchase devices straight from Moto Maker.

PhoneArena hears from a “source close to Motorola” that Moto Maker support is one the cards for Moto 360. Though it is unclear what sort of customization options would be offered for the smartwatch. Perhaps there will be choices for the watch color and wristbands, and maybe even metal bands, but this is pure speculation for now.

The other rumor merely reiterates what we have already heard quite a few times before. Motorola is apparently looking to launch its smartwatch alongside the Moto X+1, the successor to last year’s Moto X flagship. There have been countless leaks about the successor but so far it hasn’t been confirmed by Motorola when its destined for the market.

Some believe that August is the month when Motorola makes these announcements. It seems possible as last year’s flagship was also unveiled in August.
