    Beautiful Proportioned - Awful Battery

    Posted
    tazeeboo

    After my MOTO360 smartwatch broke, I went without a watch for a good 7 months before realizing, I really got acustomed to a watch to get things done, notified etc. Especially when I usually carry my phone in my big purse (longchamp- so ladies who know this know that there are no real compartments for things like a phone for quick access) and my phone would constantly have to be rummaged through a myriad of things before I finally miss the call Or whatever. I considered the Samsung Frontier for all the features I was looking for especially battery life (which as an issue with my moto 360) , water resistant for those days at the pool with the kids where I’m not submerged but prone to get wet, etc , but a BIG deal breaker with that was the Tizen rather than wear OS- not to mention the SUPER MASCULINE MONSTER of a watch on my lady wrist - regardless of the bands avail to feminize and soften the Gear Frontier. So I looked at the MK- beautiful, just what I wanted, WEAR OS, aethestically pleasing, screen was just the right size for it’s purpose, was able to connect flawlessly with my GOOGLE PIXEL 2XL, the FACES of MK to choose from were absolutely gorgeous and fitting to ANY occasion, very very customizable with the capabilities to save them to avoid needing to do EVERYTHING again. Notifications were immediate and sync’d great with fitness and real-time notification on calls and texts (meaning there was no lag from receiving a call on my phone to getting notified on watch - it was relatively simultaneous). I didn’t keep the ALWAYS ON option for battery longevity, toggled the gestures OFF, even had to choose non-animated watch faces (and some of the best MK faces are the motion ones- Beautiful!), and to my dismay, I LITERALLY had to recharge MIDDAY to have a functioning at least 20% by 11pm bedtime for me (my day would begin at 6am- when I’m out the door) - but by 11am (AT WORK when i can’t really do much with the watch but get quick notifications) the battery would already be at 40%. The next day i wanted to see the status of my battery- same start time of 6am - and by 6:40am of getting to work - barely getting anything but agenda notification from my calendar for the day- i was already at 83% - what? 40 minutes and already used up almost 20%???? I even blocked some apps from notifying hoping it would do something for my battery - but it was deemed fruitless. On the weekends would be worse since I was more active physically and had the chance to use the watch in responding and playing with it a bit to get the arch faces desired, customizing, etc, so it would be out of battery completely by 4pm. It was heart wrenching to give it back- it was soooo pretty- but definitely not practical... even felt kinda weird being blinged out with a fancy looking arch at a workout but I would’ve gotten an after market band for it , but didn’t even last that long to try. OH — and speaking of band - this watch has a band that EASILY allows you to conveniently remove it for band changing... however, a little TOO easily. I have a few time accidentally hit the large release buttons and can imagine losing it easily it I wasn’t attentive to my wrist. Like I said, BE-AU-TI-FUL watch, in every way fashionable and got many compliments, but BATTERY says it last up to 24 hrs is down right misleading and an utter LIE ... unless you do not have any notifications, stop any activity tracking, have the screen off 98% of the time, and charge it during the day at least once ... it DOES NOT last allllll day... no matter the minimum done- unfortunately I had returned it 14 days after purchasing to give it a FAIR chance in convincing me it was worth it... at 350 I would expect at least a full day (as in at least a full 10 hours before worrying of charging for more stamina). I hope one day to have a smart watch that is Fashionable and PRACTICAL with a super battery. Let’s hope for GOOGLE WEAR WATCH in OCT ‘18 to have put some though into this. Here’s to hoping.

    Great Watch, bad charger

    Let me start by saying, I absolute love the look of this watch. I have received multiple compliments and questions about this watch. I waited to write a review about the watch to get the full idea of how it really operated, I have had it now for over two months. It has a very light buzz to notify you of any notifications. I can answer calls on the watch but you do still need to speak into the phone to have a normal call. I can respond to messages on the phone via. text keyboard, quick responses or talking into the watch for messages. I can delete emails that come through from the watch. I also love that I can see my schedule for the next day and the fitness tracker is great! The faces and complications that are on the watch are phenomenal, I love so many of the options they have! The battery is okay. I can definitely wear the watch from 8AM-10PM and by that point it has a low battery. Plus it depends on how much you are using the watch during the day. I have read reviews about not having a long battery, the watch works the same as a phone...the more you use it and use the ON SCREEN ...the faster the battery will drain. I keep my screen off. The one biggest flaw I have with this watch is at night when charge it, I can wake up and the watch is only at 34%. One the watch charges VERY slow BUT the actual charger itself is VERY flimsy and not the best quality (especially compared to the Apple watch charger). Overall, I absolute love the watch but I would recommend trying to catch this watch while it's on sale! And possibly trying to find a second charger for it. If not a third one as well.

    Beautiful Watch But Misleading Description

    I bought this watch for my wife as an alternative to the apple watch. I have the apple watch but my wife didn't care for the aesthetics. No doubt about it this is one beautiful watch. I was excited to give it to her as I knew she would love it. She did in fact love it but tho the display, the sales person and the packaging says iPhone compatible, what it should have said was limited compatibility. You can only receive alerts on the watch from the phone, you could not respond to the alerts. answer the phone, or any other premium feature you would expect form a smart watch. What is the use of having the smart watch if you still needed the phone to do anything. I returned this watch for a rose gold apple watch and tho she is a bit disappointed that she couldn't keep the one she wanted she is happy with the added functionality. I just wish they would've been clearer about the functionality of the limited compatibility so I wouldn't have wasted my time. Cant give it a negative review because I'm sure any android user would love this watch. My review is simply to inform other iOS users to not waste their time and just pick up the apple watch.

    I get so many compliments on my Michael Kors Sofie watch. It doesn't seem like it's a smart watch at all and it has all the elegance to it. It doesn't have as many features as an apple watch does, but for me that's not a big deal. I purchased the watch for the looks and elegance it has. It is hard to text back from the watch itself, but I carry my phone on me all the time. I like that I'm able to view my notifications, texts, emails, phone calls at a glance. When I need to respond to those notifications I pull out my phone. Makes it easy to view the notifications when I'm in the office, in a meeting, or out and about.

    Wife Loves it !

    Wife had been wanting a new smartwatch and I came across this one that would match her purses etc. , so far in one week she has really loved it , bigger screen then her old smart watch and the rose gold matches her rose gold bridal rings as well. Nothing but compliments she receives. *Side Note * The battery lasted her 8 hr. shift with about 20% to spare but she did change the option of the watch to only turn on when she pushes the side button instead of always turning on when she flicks her wrist in the upwards position. By doing that she now leaves work with 60% remaining so remember to go into settings if you want a longer lasting battery. Other then that A+.

    Before buying this watch, I had a Garmin one that was decent. The reason I decided on this one was because of the brand, Michael Kors, and the pretty design. Overall, it is an ok watch. I found myself missing my Garmin, but after a few software updates it has gotten better. The battery life sucked before but now it seems to last a lot longer. I use it with a Google Pixel 2 and every phone call that comes in is marked as a private caller. I have no idea why it does that. Also, my gmail hardly gives watch notifications after doing one of the watch software updates. It does what I want it to do, so its a good watch in my book.

    Looks great, but doesn't work as designed

    I love the look of the watch which is one of the reasons I bought it. It's very feminine unlike other smartwatches out there. However, I bought the watch yesterday, charged it completely, setup it up, and by the end of day the battery life was gone. Then this morning, I woke up to a fully charged battery. Worked out at the gym and used the watch early this morning, and by 11 am, the watch was already on battery saving mode. Secondly, I noticed that it does not keep track of steps very well. I will be returning this watch today!

    I get a ton of compliments on how nice my watch looks. Most people can immediately guess that it's Michael Kors, but they are so surprised when I say it's also a smart watch. I have used it with both android phones and an iPhone and because it's android based, you get more out of it such as watch faces with the Android Wear app (android) has more options that Wear IOS (iPhone) does, but I still thoroughly enjoy it with my iPhone. It is absolutely beautiful and the screen graphics are clear and easy to read. Do know that the watch band is going to need to be resized, and that can be done at any watch repair or sales shop.

    I actually recieved this as a gift and returned it. The watch was very pretty but very heavy. I dont think i could have worn this every day. When trying to use the texting or other smart features I found it to be not user friendly. It was difficut and time consuming trying to get it to text. You also cant answer calls on this watch. I wanted something where I could answer calls on. This watch was just not for me

    Pretty watch, not convinced it's worth the money

    It's a standard WearOS watch, uses the google play store for apps. It is very pretty, and can be used as a formal wristwatch or dressed down a little. Fit well on a smaller wrist. It did have a mic but not a speaker. No heart rate, no NFC. The fossil q venture watch is less money and does the same, and the microphone responded better in my experience. If you want a watch with some bling this is the watch for you, otherwise, try fossil.

    I dont like to wear watches but I started looking into a smart watch this one is just so different it doesnt have that bulky sporty look to it it's very cute and sparkly. I was hesitant on buying if for all the bad reviews I saw but I took my chances. The battery life is great with my Samsung phone. I can wear it all day and it will last.

    Bought this watch for my wife. She picked it out over my choice for her-the gear s3. She loved the way it looked and got lots of compliments, but the NEXT day she told me she hated the battery life - didn't make it thru one day! We returned it for the gear s3, bought a bejeweled watch band to girl it up and.....BINGO! Samsung wins and my wife is happy. Battery life is 3 times what the Kors was.

    I bought this watch/fitness tracker because it looked nice and claimed to do what I needed it to do. I have had two. One in rose gold, the other in yellow gold. Both stopped working. The screens would get stuck. you couldn't tell the time, because the screen would not update. Many times, I would have to let it die to reset. Lots of issues. I would not recommend.

    Battery life will not get you through a work shift, awful! Emails and notification pop up and that’s a plus BUT it’s constantly syncing and loosing Bluetooth connection. You have to keep the app open on your background on phone. I prefer the technology of the FitBit over this but the esthetics of the Michael Kors.

    I havent gone anywhere without my watch and it's been such and integral part of my life. When I forget it at home, I feel like my wrist is naked. Love that it now has a speaker and a microphone on the watch (I had the s2 before and it didnt have this feature)

    This is a decently nice watch for the price. It has some performance issues but works great most of the time. Materials seem cheaper than Samsung and apples watches. If you really want a designer looking watch then this works nicely. If you don’t care about the looks then go with the higher quality offerings.

    This watch is just that. A good looking smart watch. I bought it for my wife and she has used it for almost a year now and she still has not been able to learn to do much with it. Not very user friendly. I give it a four only because shes happy with it but there are far better ones.

    Great watch, great look and comfortable to wear. So many great features and easy to use. The battery life is way better then I expected, I have had it on since 8 a.m. and it's now 8 p.m. and it's at 60%.

    This watch is beautiful. I can keep up with fitness, see notifications, answer texts, and ask Google. I love that I can customize the watch face with my personal photos. However, I wish it had a speaker. Also, it was very difficult to get it connected to my phone (Google Pixel 2). It would not connect to my primary account on my phone.
