It's just OK
I'm a huge smart watch fan and also a fan of Michael Kors watches in general. I've had a bunch of smart watches ranging from the Moto 360 to the Apple Watch. I'm not a particular fanboy of any brand and consider myself brand agnostic. So when I had the chance to buy the Android Wear Michael Kors watches I was excited to try them out. The parent brand of Fossil is trying to bring smart waches across all their brands such as Micheal Kors, Kate Spade, Diesel, Skagen, etc. It's cool that they're bringing technology and fashion together, but there's a lot more work to do.
- Looks good. That’s what the fashion part is for right
- Built pretty solid. Feels like it is put together right
- Water resistant
- Heavy. I work out alot and it still feels heavy on my wrist
- Performance is inconsistant
- The display is somewhat blurry and looks washed out.
For the price of $350, these watches are some of the best looking ones on the market right now. The plus is that they are also water resistant which makes it easier to not be nervous about getting it wet in the rain. But with the performance and how the screen changes and the funcitons itself, the smartwatch is no different than any other Android Wear out there on the market. Plain and simple, the display is lackluster. I don’t think it’s worth the $350 price tag. If you want a good looking watch, just get a regular Michael Kors watch. Albeit, these are cheaply made watches (not as cheap as the knock offs you get in Chinatown, but definitely not worth the pricetag for the higher end ones).
