With more and more tech wearables entering the market every single day, it’s not hard to find a smart watch, ring and even bag for yourself. What is difficult though, is finding one that is as stylish as it is functional.
That’s why we were so excited to learn that Michael Kors is launching its very first Michael Kors Access display smart watch in collaboration with Google!
Speaking about the smart watch, Michael Kors said in a statement, “I’m in the business of making people’s lives easier through fashion. I thought, ‘Why can’t tech accessories be chic and glamorous?’ After all, technology is impacting life more and more. It should reflect your personal taste as much as anything else, but it should also give you access to all the experiences that you want.”
And Michael Kor’s first foray into wearable tech is definitely chic. The smart watch features a classic gold case for the ladies and comes in a sporty all-black design for men, which you can customise with interchangeable leather and silicone wristbands.
You can also change the watch’s display face according to your mood. Rock the digital chronograph display for work, and swop that out for glittering animated pavé diamonds for a night out.
Tech-wise, the watch is powered by the Google’s Android Wear smart watch platform, and is compatible with both iOS and Android phones. You can receive alerts for texts, emails and social media updates, amongst other app notifications; use the watch to track your fitness progress; and utilise various Google functions like voice command.
As anxious to bag the Michael Kors Access smart watch as we are? Well, you’ll have to wait. The watch will only be available in Michael Kors boutiques, its e-store and select departmental and specialty stores from Fall 2016. But here’s some good news — this is just the beginning of a whole line of wearable technology from the label, which means there’s plenty to look forward to in the coming year.
