MODE watch bands introduce a simple, new, snap-and-swap technology for interchangeable style. Designed for Android Wear, and in keeping with Androids open ecosystem ethos, MODE bands are easily swappable across different watch designs and brands. MODE technology features a simple sliding button so you can attach and detach your favorite styles in one click. From workout, to work, to workin it, MODE bands are available in a range of sizes (16mm, 18mm, 20mm, 22mm), designs, materials and colors suitable for every moment. MODE leverages industry standard watch-pins, allowing forward and backward compatibility with existing Android Wear (as well as regular, analog) watches, so your bands can seamlessly adapt to your style and your technology. The genuine leather bands are assembled by hand and use an innovative induction heating process to bond the leather to the stainless steel mechanism. The active bands are co-molded in high-performance, soft-touch, sweat-proof silicone. MODE is a partnership between Google and the US watch band maker Hadley Roma. MODE technology and brand is free and open for accessory and watch makers to adopt and use.
