Verizon Wireless has put the metal-banded version of the Moto 360 smartwatch up for pre-order. Both the white (steel) and black versions will be available for $299.99, Verizon says that they will ship by November 11 of this year.
The Moto 360, now on sale, was originally introduced with both leather and metal bands, with the leather-banded models shipping first. If you have a leather strap and want to change it for Motorola's metal band, you'll need to fork over another $79.99 on top of the $249.99 you've already paid for the Moto 360. You can elect to change out the included band with any 22mm strap, but Motorola says that old, third-party straps might not look as good due to the round shape of the watch.
