We knew Motorola was planning to sell the Moto 360 with a metal band later this fall, but Verizon already has a pre-order page up. That's the good news. The not so good news is that it won't ship until November 11th, according to the site. Ouch.

Just as Motorola said, the all-metal version of the watch costs $50 more than the leather banded model. So that's $299 before taxes (shipping is free with Verizon). Both the light metal and dark are available for pre-order if you're interested.

Some people have already managed to swap out the band on the 360 with a third-party metal one, so I'm not sure why you'd wait on the version from Motorola itself. The $50 upsell for a band might seem a little steep, but metal bands will be on sale by themselves later for $79.99. Presumably, they will be very nice.
