Michael Kors Smartwatches—putting the smart in elegance!

 

Michael Kors released their third smartwatch design, Access Runway. And it seems that they listened to their patrons’ comments on the last design, Access Sophie, Access Grayson, and Access Bradshaw, and made upgrades on design and features. So let’s talk about these Michael Kors Smartwatches and compare them with each other.

Android Central

 

MK Access Bradshaw

Michael Kors

MK Access Bradshaw was released back in 2016. Its arrival in the Android Wear store was a huge deal for watch enthusiast because they were on the lookout for a better smartwatch that showcases a classic watch design aside from the Huawei smartwatch then.

 

Truly, Access Bradshaw was a better smartwatch than the Huawei counterpart. Mainly, because it has better design and features.

MK Access Grayson

Michael Kors

Released September 2017, Access Grayson is made for the modern man on the go. This spectacular device is very much eye-catching but it seems that Fossil (the maker) decided to focus more on the design than the features.

 

Design:

Compared to Access Bradshaw, Access Grayson is more manly looking. It is very fashionable and can be considered the ultimate pogi watch of this time. The 47mm ion-plated smartwatch is oversized and pretty hefty. It comes in Silver, Black, Gold, and Navy.

MK Access Sofie

Yoox

Mixing together high-technology and glamour, MK Access Sofie’s design is leaning more on women’s taste. It is more slender than Access Grayson and it’s crystal-studded. It is a classic and glamorous looking wrist-piece that is definitely a must-have in every watch aficionado’s collection.

 

Design:

MK is known for amazing designs, Access Sofie is made to be more fashionable and more glamorous compared to the first few designs of their smartwatches. It has a round face and the display can be customized depending on your taste and accessibility you need. It has a 42mm stainless steel casing and studded with beautiful crystals. Although it looks a lot slimmer than the other MK smartwatches it still quite heavy.

MK Access Runway

Wareable

The most recent smartwatch design from Michael Kors, MK Access Runway, was launched earlier this year. It is a huge improvement compared to other MK smartwatch designs. There are more features and the design is more customizable.

 

Design:

Slim and fabulous, Access Runway is smaller and thinner compared to other MK smartwatches. It has a circular 41mm with 18mm lugs display and the metal straps can be changed to a silicone strap (ceramic straps are now available as well). This fresh design from MK is a lot lighter and more casual than the rest. The screen face can still be customized just like Access Sofie but with more designs. It comes in Gold, Silver, Black, Red, and more.

 

Specs:

  • It has an added heart rate functionality
  • Google Fit
  • Powered by Android Wear
  • Untethered GPS
  • Google Pay
  • Water resistant
  • The screen is 1.19-inch AMOLED with a 390 x 390 resolution

All-in-all, the MK smartwatches are indeed an epitome of luxury meets technology. A lot of fashion and watched enthusiast will surely go gaga over these masterpieces but not so for fitness enthusiasts. Many don’t think that the design is wearable in the gym. Also, the battery life can be improved. Still, kudos to Michael Kors for the creating beautiful wrist-pieces.
