From leather, to steel, to whatever that rubbery sport stuff is, the world of Moto 360 watch straps is wide and deep! Between Motorola-created designs and the big world of third party styles you have a lot to choose from. We created a list of the best third-party watch straps for the Moto 360, but for the time being, here's a recommendation for great replacement band.

From Motorola itself, you can choose from a nice variety of leather or metal bands in different colors to give yourself some more variety instead of just using the one that came with your watch. The main advantage of choosing a strap for Motorola is so you can choose a second generation strap (assuming you have the latest model) with the quick release button. This was not available on the first-gen line of Moto 360 and is hard to find with most third party straps. If you use a third party strap, you usually need a small tool to swap your straps, but using straps designed with the quick-release button allows you to simply switch between sporty and classy strips with minimal effort.
