There’s a reason it feels like everyone you know owns a Michael Kors watch: The sleek designs and accessible price point make them solid investments for anyone who is looking for a nice, everyday timepiece.
And now it’s smarter: This Michael Kors is getting into the wearable technology game, beginning with the Michael Kors Access smartwatch.
While it looks very similar to the standard chunky gold MK watch, this touchscreen timepiece, which runs with both iPhone and Android phones, sends you text and email alerts, as well as social media updates, tracks your fitness, and more.
Designer Michael Kors had one thing in mind when creating this watch: “I’m in the business of making people’s lives easier through fashion,” he says. “I thought, ‘Why can’t tech accessories be chic and glamorous?’ You wear them every day. 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.” Which, yes.
Available online at michaelkors.com and in stores this fall 2016, the Michael Kors Access watch will retail for $395.
