The Moto Z is the successor to the Moto X, which Lenovo launched in the middle of 2016. It’s a great smartphone that’s available at Verizon and unlocked, here in the US. Lenovo made a great looking device in the Moto Z and also debuted Moto Mods which are pretty cool. They allow you to slap a mod onto the back of your phone and extend its functionality. But those aren’t the only accessories available for the Moto Z, there are plenty of others, and here are the best.
JBL SoundBoost Moto Mod
This is one of the more popular Moto Mods, the JBL SoundBoost. It’s a Mod that can be added to your Moto Z (or Moto Z Force and Moto Z Play) and it adds two speakers to the backside which provide some incredible sound. It also has its own built in battery so it’s not drawing power from your device. Additionally, it just works, there’s no needing to set it up or anything like that.
Spigen Rugged Armor
Spigen’s Rugged Armor case is also available for the Moto Z, and it makes the device look quite stunning. Since the Moto Z is already fairly thin, making it tough to hold onto, it’s a good idea to throw a case on it to protect it from the accidental drop, or even just normal wear and tear. The Rugged Armor will do just that, and it’ll look nice too.
OtterBox COMMUTER SERIES Case
Now some people are pretty hard on their smartphone, and picking up an Otterbox case is the way to go for the Moto Z. It is going to definitely make the device a bit thicker and bulkier, but it’s definitely worth it, if you are worried about dropping it, or perhaps work in construction. It does even have its own built in screen protector.
Fitbit Charge 2
The Fitbit Charge 2 is a great accessory to check out if you are looking to be a bit more active and get in shape. It connects to your phone via Bluetooth and syncs all of your data to the Fitbit app. The Fitbit Charge 2 does have a built in heart rate monitor, so you can keep track of your heart rate throughout the day and use it to push yourself in the gym during your workouts.
Skinomi TechSkin Full Coverage Screen Protector
You’ll want to protect that Quad HD screen that the Moto Z has, and you can do that with Skinomi’s TechSkin screen protector. It’ll cover the entire front-side of the device, so that everything will be protected from scratch, cracks and even shattering. Definitely worth investing in, after paying hundreds for the Moto Z.
TUMI Wireless Charging Power Pack Moto Mod
This is perhaps the most interesting Moto Mod available right now, not to mention the most popular. It’s an extended battery, which you can pop on and use to keep your Moto Z going. But it also supports Wireless Charging. So you can put your Moto Z down on a wireless charging pad and have it charge right up pretty quickly.
WizGear Universal Air Vent Magnetic Car Mount
You shouldn’t be using your phone while you’re driving, and that’s what this car mount is for. It attaches to the vent in your car and using magnets it holds the Moto Z (or any smartphone really) in place while you’re driving. Allowing you to still play your favorite music from your phone or use it for navigation.
Spigen A200 Magnetic Air Vent Phone Holder
Car Mounts are an important accessory to pick up for a new smartphone, and luckily this one is fairly cheap and can attach to the air vent in your car. Spigen is also a well-known brand, making it a great choice for your new Moto Z. Allowing you to use your device for things like Android Auto or even controlling the music in the car.
AUKEY Pack of 5 USB-C to USB 3.0 Braided Cables
There are many USB Type-C cables available out there right now, but what makes this one special is the fact that you are getting a pack of five here. You’ll get three that are 3.3-feet long, one that is 6.6-feet long and one that is 1-foot long. The 6.6-foot long one is a great one to take traveling with you. All of these are braided, so they can take a bit of a beating, compared to some of the others on the market right now.
SPARIN Tempered Glass Screen Protector
SPARIN has a great tempered glass screen protector that is available for the Moto Z. This one will protect your display while still feeling natural to the touch, instead of feeling like plastic like many of the cheaper screen protectors that are out there on the market. SPARIN even gives you two screen protectors here.
