We don’t know the precise sales figures yet, but it’s clear that the Moto 360 was the first smartwatch launch to draw a significant crowd. Within just a few hours, the wearable device had already sold out on Motorola’s website, forcing anyone who wasn’t quick on the draw to wait for it to become available at third-party retailers. Others are surely waiting for Apple to reveal its wearable before making a decision, but if the iWatch doesn’t float your boat, it might be worth waiting for the stainless steel Moto 360.

FROM EARLIER: Google is already prepping a few major updates for your new Moto 360

Verizon revealed on Monday that the Moto 360 with a metal band would start shipping on November 11th, but the carrier has already started taking preorders for the watch on its website. The Moto 360 with a stainless steel band comes in either black or white and will retail for $299, just $50 more than the leather model.

If you already own a Moto 360 but prefer metal to leather, you can buy a metal band from Motorola for $80. There are other vendors to choose from as well, but as 9to5Google warns, it might be safer to stick with the official products until the market for smartwatch bands begins to pick up.
