If you’re looking for a smartwatch deal – there’s a frankly insane discount going on Amazon for the Michael Kors MKGO smartwatch that made us sit up and take notice.
Retailing with an RRP of $299 (albeit available for $149 now on Michael Kors’ own site), a bunch of colorways are available for just $111 on Amazon. You can get black, pink, white/gold at this price.
And this is by no means dated tech. The Michael Kors MKGO was only announced at IFA 2019, so it’s still very much part of the current scene.
However, it is a 4th Gen Fossil device, which it’s starting to lag behind the newest Fossil Gen 5 devices, including Skagen Falster 3.
So what do you get?
The Michael Kors MKGO is sportier than any MK watch that’s gone before, with a rubber sweat-friendly strap and bright, vibrant colours. It has a 43mm case size, so just about figures as unisex in our books.
It’s got GPS and heart rate built in, which populates into the Google Fit app. That’s not going to please hardcore gym-goers, but certainly enough for those looking to a partner for the odd class or job. You can also take it into the pool thanks to 3ATM water resistance.
It runs Wear OS, which is Google’s own operating system for smartwatches and runs a new Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor – which is about as good as you’ll get for Wear OS right now.
But that price makes it hard to ignore. And if you’re not a fan of the garish colours, the black option is in the sale as well.
