New Moto 360 color options are on the way, and we already know what they look like, thanks to Amazon. The retail giant prematurely listed a new Champagne-colored device and a cognac leather strap, which it said would start shipping next month before the listings were later pulled.

Worried your beloved Moto 360 is going to pick up scuffs and scratches during use? Perhaps this 3D-printed bumper will do the trick. Made by Raelx and priced at just $8, it wraps around the outer edge of your watch and prevents its shiny stainless steel frame from picking up little nicks when you accidentally knock it against stuff.

Reports about a Microsoft wearable device have been circulating for a while, and now the good folks from Redmond, WA have finally made it official: a Microsoft fitness band is here, and it works on both Android and iOS.

Like the Apple Watch and Galaxy Gear, the appropriately-named Microsoft Band tracks steps and heart rate, as well as showing you phone notifications in the form of text, email, and Twitter alerts.

“It’s the most advanced band we’ve seen in terms of technology on the wrist,” Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President of Devices and Services told The Verge. “[I]t’s really designed to do two things: have people live healthier, and be more productive, by having a band that can serve on the opposite side of your watch, worn 24 hours a day, and get some of the most accurate data that you can possibly get.”

That’s not the end of Microsoft’s fitness-tracking ambitions, though.

The iPhone 6 is obliterating Samsung’s Note 4 in sales, and could even outsell it 10x according to a Korean analyst.

In a note to clients, Shinhan Investment’s Kim Young-chan wrote that the iPhone “will outsell the Galaxy Note 4 by tenfold, with 80 million units shipped worldwide in the October-December period.” Young-chan adds that, “Other market watchers also are expressing doubts about the performance of Korean tech giants.”
