Michael Kors Smartwatch – Timeless Sophistication

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy gift card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions about the timeless sophistication of the Michael Kors Smartwatch are 100% my own.

The Michael Kors Access Runway Smartwatch is everything you’d expect in a Michael Kors watch – timeless sophistication. It comes in both gold-tone, like mine, or rose gold-tone, and is all around just a beautiful watch. But the K smart watch is more than just eye candy…

With its smartphone connectivity, it lets you take selfies, access your music, ring your phone, keep track of personal goals, and more. And the round 42mm case of the Michael Kors smartwatch makes it easy to see the interface.

Pros

Timeless Sophistication

The Michael Kors Access Runway smartwatch is a fashionista’s dream. A classic gorgeous watch that goes from working out to a night out on the town when you can customize your dial (watch face) with ease. As of right now, there are 41 different watch faces to choose from… plenty of choices to fit your mood or outfit of the day. Told you it was timeless sophistication.

For someone like me that views a watch as an accessory, this watch fits the bill and being a smartwatch is a plus.

Easy Setup

Setting up the Michael Kors smartwatch really could not be easier. Even if you are not tech-minded at all, you won’t have any problem with the quick start guide that is included. You can also watch step by step guides on the Michael Kors Access YouTube channel.

Google Fit

I love that the Google Fit apps are easy to use. And being able to monitor my heart rate anytime is nice.

Water Resistant

Not that I plan on swimming with my Michael Kors smartwatch on, but having a smartwatch that is water resistant is a real plus since I do have my hands in and around water often.

Google Compatible

The Runway is compatible with all your Google accounts. I love being able to sync to my Google calendar.

Cons

Battery Life

Even though it advertises a 24-hour battery life, that just doesn’t seem to be the case. In fact, if you use many of the features of the smartwatch on a regular basis, I find I had to charge the watch after about 10 hours of wearing/using it. The battery life does drop quickly with usage.

iPhone Compatability

Although it does work with the iPhone, there are some limitations. I can see notifications for calls, texts, and emails, but I cannot answer my calls or reply to texts and emails using the Michael Kors Smartwatch with Wear OS Google.

For example, I will get a notification that I have an incoming call, but I can’t answer it on the smartwatch. Worse yet, if I touch the green phone (to answer the call) it says, “Missed call” but does actually answer the call on my phone — even when I am not in the room with my phone.

I have hopes that there will be upgrades that will make the MK smartwatch more compatible with the iOS in the near future, though.

The Michael Kors Access Runway Smartwatch is sold at Best Buy in Gold and Rose Gold. I’m happy with my watch and do think it would make a great timeless gift.
