Michael Kors Access Runway Smartwatch Powered with Wear OS by Google


Michael Kors Access Runway Smartwatch Review. The Michael Kors Access Runway is powered
by a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 chipset, with 4GB of storage thrown in for good measure. That’s the same hardware configuration as
the Michael Kors Access Sofie, and you’d be right to think that the interface and speed
is very similar. Swiping through Wear OS is reasonably speedy
with the majority of apps opening up at just the pace you’d want them to. There are only very rare moments of slowdown
and they’re hardly intrusive. There’s the usual selection of features you’d
expect from Wear OS, such as pre-installed watch faces, Google Assistant voice controls,
and music playback controls. It’s all solidly dependable if unexceptional.
The Access Runway is the first of this generation of Michael Kors watches to offer built-in
GPS, heart rate tracking, and NFC. The watch takes your heart rate every 20 minutes
or on demand if you choose to press the bottom button when in Google Fit. It’s straightforward enough and reasonably
accurate for a wrist-based wearable too. Bear in mind, it occasionally reports slightly
higher readings than other devices though. There’s also the bonus of built-in GPS, so
you can leave your smartphone at home while walking or jogging. There’s a knock on effect with battery life,
but it’s a neat bonus on a watch that’s primarily aimed at the fashion market. The addition of Google Pay support also means
you won’t have to worry about carrying cash or cards when out and about. Looks-wise, the Michael Kors Access Runway
isn’t really made for fitness. It looks too fashionable and solid to be the
kind of thing that you’d feel comfortable wearing while running or performing a strength
workout. However, that option is much more likely to
become reality now than with previous Michael Kors smartwatches, thanks to the Runway’s
built-in GPS, heart rate monitoring, and enhanced water resistance. It’s not perfect admittedly, but it’s a huge
step for a fashion smartwatch. The heart rate monitor tracks readings every
20 minutes or whenever you manually activate a check, and its readings are pretty accurate. As noted above, they’re a little high compared
to a dedicated solution like the Fitbit Versa but they’re on a par with other fashion smartwatches,
and more than adequate enough for casual users. Kindly see the description for this Amazon
