Michael Kors Access Sofie & Grayson are the designer's new Android Wear watches

Baselworld 2017: Another big wearables push from MK
Michael Kors' pair of new smartwatches

A pair of new Michael Kors Android Wear smartwatches have just dropped at Baselworld: the Michael Kors Access Sofie, for women, and the Michael Kors Access Grayson, aimed at men.

Sofie is a daintier style than last year's boyfriend watch Access Bradshaw. It has a pave embellished bezel, no big, bulky lugs and what Michael Kors is calling a sleeker and slimmer watch body. We'll update with more details and specs when we have them.

Grayson, meanwhile, is a more familiar prospect - it's an all metal watch body aimed at "the man on the go". Both watches will have additional interchangeable straps too.

As you can see from the pics, the Access watches now, thankfully, come with a fully round AMOLED screen so no flat tyre. No resolution yet but we're promised higher res screens than last year across the whole range.

Both smartwatches are part of the new batch of Fossil Group wearables and will arrive running Android Wear 2.0. This new batch includes (deep breath) the Fossil Q Venture and Q Explorer, the Diesel On, the Emporio Armani Connected and the Misfit Vapor.

On the Michael Kors watches, this includes a branded micro-app called My Social which lets users hook up their Instagram account to customise watch faces with snaps from their Insta feed.

The pair of new Michael Kors smartwatches will also go on sale for 'Holiday 2017' i.e the end of the year.


As for the hybrid watches, which use a analogue watch face and hidden tech, Michael Kors has a new range of styles and colours for men and women including the Gage, pictured.

The new women's hybrid smartwatches will arrive in the Fall with the men's coming for 'Holiday' 2017. The watches handle activity tracking, alerts and have pusher buttons on the side which can handle remote selfies and control music. No prices are available yet but we'll update when we have them. Look out for our hands ons from the whole Michael Kors line at Baselworld.
