Michael Kors is upping its smartwatch game with the launch of three new models.
The fashion label has unveiled its new generation of touchscreen smartwatches for Fall 2019, in the form of the 'Access Lexington 2,' the 'Access Bradshaw 2' and the 'Access MKGO'.
The Access Lexington 2 and Access Bradshaw 2 timepieces, which are powered with Wear OS by Google and Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100, will allow wearers to make calls – the first time the brand has offered the feature.
Both Android and iPhone users will be able to make and receive Bluetooth-enabled phone calls directly from their watches via a proprietary app rolling out later this month, thanks to the addition of a speaker.
Wearers will also be able to talk with the Google Assistant, get sound alerts for notifications and play music, and the watches come with four battery life settings. While the Lexington 2 comes in gold-tone, rose gold-tone, silver-tone or two-tone stainless steel, the Bradshaw 2's strap is offered in gunmetal, rose gold-tone, gold-tone or silver-tone stainless steel.
The new Access MKGO is the brand's lightest smartwatch to date, having been crafted with aluminum and nylon casing for optimum lightness and comfort. It can track the heart rate, offers Google Fit, Google Assistant and Google Pay for seamless purchases, and comes in pink, black, white or red silicone straps.
All three of the watches can be customised using the new micro-app, My Dials. – AFP Relaxnews
