Introducing MODE: Snap-and-swap watch bands designed for Android Wear

With Android Wear, you can wear what you want with watches from 12 different brands and thousands of interchangeable watch faces. And while you can change your watch face with just a tap, it has not been as quick and easy to change your watch band. Starting today, updating your style is as easy as “snap-and-swap,” with new MODE watch bands in partnership with b&nd by Hadley Roma.

Change your look with one click
MODE snap-and-swap watch bands feature a simple slide button so you can attach and detach your band in one click.
MODE bands are versatile—they come in four widths, fit most Android Wear watches, and work on mechanical watches too. This first collection comes in a rainbow of colors, and is available in leather and silicone, so you can easily go from the office to the gym to a night out.

Join the bandwagon
This is just the beginning. We want Android Wear to give you as much choice as possible, so we’ll be sharing the MODE mechanism design and source with other brands to use to create their own snap-and-swap watch bands. To help brands get started, we’ve created a vendor playbook with instructions, requirements and brand guidelines. To find out more, email us at [email protected].

MODE bands are now available online at the Google Store (US), Amazon, and Best Buy. We’re excited to see all the ways you wear what you want.
