Have you been considering getting a smartwatch for yourself or someone special as a gift? I will freely admit, I had smartwatch envy for years, seeing so many of my friends having one and then reading about how so many others I knew online had integrated it into their lives to make being healthier even easier. It didn’t take long before I started experimenting, trying out some of the early Fitbit models, than Pebble, and then ultimately ending up with my series 3 Apple Watch. While it finally did hit that ‘sweet’ spot in most ways, the one thing I never felt the Apple’s smartwatch did was look fashionable and pretty. It looks like a sportswatch, which isn’t a bad thing…except when you are wearing a business suit, a nice dress, or just dressing up for the holidays. It stands out like a sore thumb because of how it looks, making it something most guys and gals leave at home before going out to a business dinner. This was one of the reasons I was excited when I found out about the Michael Kors Access Runway SmartWatch.
Michael Kors Access Runway SmartWatch: Fashion First
From a fashion standpoint, there is very little on the market that competes with the Michael Kors Access Runway SmartWatch. Instead of looking like a traditional sportswatch, Michael Kors went with a fashion-meet-function design – creating something eye-catchingly beautiful while still having enough practicality to be worn at the gym after a hard day at work. You can even add your own personal style with customizable watch faces and even the coloring of the band itself (available in gold or rose gold). If you want a watch that goes with any outfit or occasion, the Michael Kors Access Runway SmartWatch is the first smartwatch I have seen to truly do this, without being too flashy or seeming gaudy.
Michael Kors Access Runway SmartWatch: Wear OS By Google
One of the other things that makes the Michael Kors Access Runway SmartWatch interesting is that uses Wear OS By Google. Unlike most watches that are means for Android or iOS, watches that run on Wear OS By Google are able to work with both Android based phones and iPhones. As well as being able to work with just about any smartphone, Wear OS By Google uses some of the best smart help and health coaching technology, allowing you to get proactive help from the Google Assistant or in-depth coaching with Google Fit. As well, all activity advice follows the guidelines of the American Heart Association and World Health Organization, giving you amazing advice as you workout using Google Fit’s new activity trackers – Heart Points and Move Minutes. Both of these apps use evidence-based metrics to measure activity intensity, and smarter health coaching makes your fitness goals more achievable by motivating you to stay active throughout your day.
Along with being smart when it comes to fitness goals, it also helps you manage your time and attention better with easily read, at-a-glance notifications, including offering smart responses to keep you from having to stop and get your phone. If your focus is activity tracking and being fit, without losing style, this is where the Michael Kors Access Runway SmartWatch really shines.
Michael Kors Access Runway SmartWatch: Functionality
Of course, functionality is the reason we CHOOSE a smartwatch. We want something that isn’t just beautiful, it needs features to make our lives even better or easier. If there is one thing the Michael Kors Access Runway SmartWatch does well, it is integrating a suite of features in a package that is elegant and practical, but should be easy to use even for those who aren’t very techy. Some of the amazing features that you will enjoy with the Michael Kors Access Runway SmartWatch include:
- Heart Rate Monitoring
- Activity Tracking
- Pay On The Go with Google Pay’s NFC Technology
- Convenient Access To Favorite Apps (Such as Spotify)
- Google Assistant for Day To Day Needs
- Touch & Swipe Menus With 1.19″ AMOLED Touch-Screen Display
- Water Resistant UP To 98’ Of Water
- Wireless Connection & Easy Pairing with Bluetooth 4.1 LE Connectivity & NFC Technology
- Sleep Tracking

- & More (Based On Android or iOS Specific Functionality)

Susan Bewley says
I”m hoping we can do something like this soon. Crossing my fingers. 😉
This is very cool and seems like such a good product and would make a very good gift
MPaula Whelan says
I have never worn a digital watch. My friends will be amazed that I can tell them the time without saying “plus or minus 5 minutes”! Sleep tracking is probably the monitoring I would use most.
Linda Szymoniak says
I’ve gotten out of the habit of wearing a watch but have been wanting to get one. This one not only looks great but I love that it tracks sleep. One of my daughters could really use this!
Michelle Bauer says
This is so fashion & techno forward. A gorgeous Smartwatch that I could definitely see myself wearing on a daily basis.
Smartwatches tend to be big, bulky and not fashionable. This looks like a classy, sophisticated watch and I love that it is a smartwatch!!
Megan Zuchowski says
I would like to begin wearing a watch but I haven’t found the right one. I need something that is both stylish and functional.
Rebecca Orr says
I am always eyeing gorgeous watches with big dreams of buying myself something pretty. Every couple of years, I buy a watch that isn’t exactly what I want because I keep feeling like I NEED a watch. I wear it for a day or 2. Then I take it off for the shower. And then it sits in the bathroom until it needs a new battery. Okay, that is a slight exaggeration. However, it sits unused for months and then I will randomly wear it again for a few days. But I never stick to a watch. At least with these…you get all the fun features (as opposed as to the traditional time (and maybe date) only watch). It would be amazing to access my Spotify account via the watch for some tunes. And the fitness features like heart rate monitor and activity tracking are key for a healthy life!
Linda Fast says
It is a very stylish watch. I like the features of the watch especially the calorie tracker.

Michael Kors clothes are always so elegant, so it figures the watches are, too. I love the bigger faces on them. I always gravitate toward bigger watches.
I like the look of this watch and love the brand. It’s style is much better than my fitbits. Maybe it is time for an upgrade!
