Michael Kors’ Sofie smartwatch
The original Michael Kors Access Sofie smartwatch was first launched in 2017. Besides it stylish design it looked good, it lacked some of the features other smartwatches were getting. Now, however, it has finally added some of those new features.
With latest upgradations, the Sofie (2019) now has GPS and a heart rate monitor. Well this modification will makes it much more capable when it comes to fitness tracking. The other add on feature is the heart rate monitor, which seems to works perfectly with Google Fit. Despite the fact that, it can also be used by other Wear OS fitness-tracking apps too. The device also now has NFC, meaning that you can use your watch to pay for things through Google Pay.
The watch is available in silver, gold, rose gold, and some two-tone mixtures of those colors. Alongside these added features, Michael Kors Access Sofie now also offers two extra buttons on the wide of the device, which can be used to quickly open apps or enable other shortcuts.
