Motorola's Moto Maker soon will let you design your own smartwatch.

According to a Wired report, Motorola's going to flip on the feature in March, giving you customization choices for the final build of your Moto 360, much as you can do right now with the company's Moto X. You'll be able to pick the watch casing, band, a one of 11 faces to show up when you first power on the watch. 

Motorola is also finally making available a single-link band it first teased in a promo video over a year ago. 

It doesn't appear there have been any major redesigns to the watch build, as the screenshots indicate the same size and and overall design of the current Moto 360 in tact. 

In our Moto 360 review we found the watch wanting in a lot of areas, especially with software bugs and battery life, though updates in the months since have fine-tuned the watch to the point that it eventually became our favorite Android Wear watch of 2014

The story behind the story: Motorola's flagship feature has been the ability to let you customize a Moto X. By using the company's Moto Maker, you can tweak the look of many elements of the phone, even offering peculiarities like a leather backside. While Apple's Jony Ive isn't a fan of letting customers design their own products, it's let Motorola stake out a nice niche in the Android ecosystem.
