Google’s Android Wear already makes it easy to change watch faces. The new MODE bands now aims to make it just as easy to customize the band of your Android Wear smartwatch. A simple slide button makes it easy to attach and detach each band in seconds. The watch you take to your workout can now quickly become the watch for a night on the town with a simple change of bands!
MODE bands are now available in a range of sizes, materials and colours. You can choose from leather and silicone bands in four different widths and sixteen different colours (including gold and silver). They are compatible with most Android Wear smartwatches. The only exceptions are the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE, the first generation Moto 360, the Moto 360 Sport and Sony Smartwatch 3.
The MODE bands are also compatible with some traditional watches and even some smartwatches (like the Pebble) not powered by Android Wear. Google will also share the MODE mechanism design and source with other brands, allowing them to offer their own snap-and-swap watch bands.
The silicone version of the MODE sells for US$49.99 while the leather one goes for US$59.99. They are available from the Google Store, Amazon and BestBuy.
