The Moto 360 is still one of the finest smartwatches on the market, but buying it from the Google Store may not be the best encounter you have with the device. After all, there are a number of consumers that are still uncomfortable with buying a smartwatch online in 2015. At last, though, Motorola has finally crafted a genius way to enhance its store presence locally.
Motorola has taken to its own store to let its Moto 360 smartwatch shine through: that’s right, the company is opening its own Moto 360 boutique store, called “Moto Shop,” to allow customers to experience firsthand the Moto 360 in all its glory. The Moto Maker options provided via the company’s website will be available within the store, allowing you to match and change leather bands and other wristbands to your heart’s content before walking away with the Moto 360 look and feel that most suits you.
Motorola said in a blog post that its boutique is meant to be an “experiential” one in that it will give customers hands-on time with not only the Moto 360, but also the shatter-resistant Droid Turbo 2. Within the store is a specialized Drop Zone devoted solely to the Droid Turbo 2, with a few surfaces (tile, ceramic, and concrete) on which to test out Motorola’s claims about its latest smartphone.
The Moto Shop opened on November 7th, but the company is having a Grand Opening on Saturday, November 14th, at the Moto Shop location of 108 N. State St. (Suite 140, Block 37). As for general hours, the Moto Shop will be opened from 10am-8pm Monday-Saturday, 11am-6pm Sunday. Now that the Moto Shop is open, do you intend to pick up your Moto 360 smartwatch online or in Chicago?
