Michael Kors Access Smartwatch REVIEW

DETAILS

The Michael Kors Access smartwatch is compatible with Android 4.3 or later or iOS 9.3 or later operating systems. With it, you can stay updated through your calendar app, SMS, email, and social media notifications. The watch as a 1.19″ AMOLED touchscreen display. The case of the watch is made from 18mm stainless steel. It’s water resistant in up to 98′ of water. The Access smartwatch connects using Bluetooth 4.1 LE and NFC technology for one-touch pairing. The watch tracks distance, calories burned, activity, sleep activity, heart rate, and steps taken.

USER EXPERIENCE

I actually got this watch for my grandmother. She is 85 years old and this summer, she got very sick with an infection. The infection cleared up thankfully, but she had a lot of extended care at home with physical and occupational therapy. They would check her vitals every time they came to visit and we began to think that it would be a good idea to have a smartwatch on her to monitor her heart rate and other activities more often than their visits. As it would happen, her simple wristwatch needed a battery. Since she was due for a new watch, we just replaced it with this beautiful smartwatch.

CONCLUSIONS

I can recommend this smartwatch based on its ease of use and style. I would, however, caution users about the limited functionality with iOS smartphones and tablets as that might be cause for a below-average user experience.
