I´ve always been a fan of watches, especially when they combine style and functionality. After a few days of wearing the OS by Google: Michael Kors – Access Runway Smartwatch 41mm Stainless Steel in gold, I was impressed.
First I paired it with my smartphone, using the Wear OS by Google app. Then I synced my smartphone and, presto, I had all alerts come to my stunning watch.
I´m an active woman so I really enjoy the Google Fit app´s two new activity trackers—Heart Points and Move Minutes—which were designed in partnership with the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization. These evidence-based metrics measure activity intensity. I´m a big fan of smart health coaching that makes fitness goals more achievable by motivating me to stay active throughout my day. I´m a big believer in consistency over time.
My favorite features of the watch
- Google Assistant, which can help you do anything from view an upcoming flight information to make dinner reservations. It´s a great way to stay organized.
- Google Pay, with which I can pay by waving the watch, at almost any any place that accepts credit cards.
- Its sleek line and eye-catching design that carries me from a workout to a night out with ease. I also like that I could customize the dial (the watch face).
The watch is available in either a gold-tone (the one I´m wearing) or rose gold-tone finish that embodies timeless sophistication. The smartphone connectivity lets you take selfies, ring your phone, access music and keep track of personal goals. The round 42mm case of this Michael Kors smart watch makes it easy to see the interface.
