While Google has been delaying the upcoming Android Wear 2.0 update, and many manufacturersGoogle updates the Play Store with a new Android Wear Watch opting-out on releasing new Android Wear watches, it seems as though time just isn’t on the wearables uncertain future. However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t companies still releasing new Wear-capable products. And this time, it comes from Michael Kors; a luxury fashion company. However, there is a catch. The new Michael Kors smartwatch replaces the older Huawei watch, as it will be no longer offered on the Google Play store page.
The Huawei watch was praised when it was first announced for being a well-built, highly capable Android Wear smartwatch. Some even called it the best Smartwatch on the market. However, that came at a price, as it was selling at a price that was too much for people to afford. And ultimately, because of the high price (although it has gone down in recent months) it wasn’t enough for Google to keep around, so they are no longer selling it on their website. That doesn’t mean it’s gone forever, it’s still available for purchase on Amazon, Best Buy, and other outlets.
Replacing the Huawei Watch is the Access Bradshaw by Michael Kors. The Access Bradshaw is the fashion companies second smartwatch, behind their Access Dylan model. The Bradshaw will retail for $350, which is reasonably priced for the fashionable design and decent specs. And what you’re getting is a Snapdragon 2100, 400mAh battery, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. However, just like Motorola’s Moto 360, it also includes the same flat-tire screen design, which can be an eyesore for some.
