Google brings in swappable bands just like Apple

Named ‘Mode’ snap-and-swap, the bands for Android Wear have been designed in collaboration with b&d Hadley Roma. These bands as the name implies are also swappable just like the ones Apple has but with the press of a button so that it can be replaced.

There are four different widths for the bands which can be easily used for most Android watches as well as other mechanical watches too. There are various different bands which are available in leather as well as silicone.

Apple Watch has held the swappable pioneering feature a year back until now when it has many different lines of colors as well as well as options to have their own customized watch.

This Mode design is also open to other makers for their own brand designing of their Android watches while the first line is now available at the Google Store, Best Buy as well as at Amazon.

About 14 million Apple Watches have been estimated to have been sold since the watch idea first came up which is also the double of iPhones sold at its 2007 launch.

While Apple has become the name for Watch since last year with many different styles, it has also seen a series designed exclusively for women through woven nylon styles along with newer colors with the reduced introductory price of just $299.

The second series of the Apple Watch line is also expected soon this year though the dates are still not known. According to reports, only the internal features will be worked upon with LTE radio for continuous data and the S2 chip for the next generation.
