In todays post I want to talk about the new Michael Kors Acces smartwatches.
I recently had the opportunity to review one of them; the Michael Kors Dylan Silicone Smartwatch. So I tried it out and below you can find my opinion; I hope it is of use to you!
First of all, I want to talk about the design of the Dylan Silicone Smartwatch. I have seen quite some smartwatches and I have to be honest, usually I don’t really like them. I think the technology is great, but most smartwatches simply lack a design good enough to be able to wear it a lot. This isn’t the case with this smartwatch. Right as I took it out of the box, I was amazed by the design. It looks just like a regular good looking watch, however the clock-face is different. There are countless ways to customize the clock-face. You can choose to fully change the clock-face, or you can keep the clock-face but only adjust the colors of the background, the colors of the pointers et cetera. There really are countless ways to design the clock-face to your own personal preferences.
The design of this watch really is a big plus as it looks great and you can wear it with almost any outfit. Besides the Dylan, Michael Kors offers a wide range of Acces Smartwatches, both for men and for women. They all work the same way, so pick the design you like best and you’re good to go!
Let’s talk a bit about the technology now. As you know, I usually write about fashion but I happen to know a thing or two about technology as well. As I said earlier in this post, I actually have already seen a lot of different smartwatches. This one definitely comes in at the top spots when it comes to technology. It works super fast and there are a lot of great features to this watch. Seen all of the possibilities of this smartwatch, it really is a hell of a lot to explain all of them in one post so for the full overview of the possibilities, I recommend you to visit the following page where the watch is fully explained: http://www.michaelkors.com/trend/mkaccess-smart-watch/_/R-cat3100005
Let me explain it broadly! The watch works with Android Wear, which is an app that you can download for your Apple or Android device. Once you have downloaded this app, you can connect your smartwatch to your phone through bluetooth. How to connect your phone is easily explained in the app, as it takes you through all of the steps with full explanation. Once connected, your smartwatch sends you all of the same push notifications as your phone does as it uses the same settings. Of course, you can customize notifications so you can tune in to (or out of) all the latest happenings. In this way, you will only get app notifications you want, right when you want them. You will notice new messages, e-mails et cetera without having to take a look at your phone.
The watch also has an activity tracker system. Get the most out of your workout with built-in fitness and activity tracking right on your watch. You can set, daily, weekly or monthly goals and the step-tracker will keep track of your progression towards your goals.
Voice Command System
The watch also has a voice command system. With voice commands, you are able to search the web or set the alerts you want, when you want them: calendar notifications, emails and so much more. You can not type on the watch, but with voice commands you can still respond to e-mails, search the internet and many more things.
The watch charges pretty quickly and within 1,5 hour, your watches battery will be full again. It also lasts at least a full day, but of course the battery lifetime also depends a bit on the way you use your smartwatch.
I have to say, I am truly amazed by this smartwatch. The design is great, not only of the Dylan model I got, but of most of the designs that Michael Kors offers! The technology also works perfectly and is a super nice addition to your usual smartphone and/or tablet and laptop. If you were to buy a smartwatch, I would definitely recommend one of the Michael Kors Acces Smartwatches.
