Fossil is making modest but steady progress toward fulfilling its commitment to ship 300 smartwatches and fitness trackers before the end of this year. The company just made an announcement that it will be releasing its Grayson and Sofie smartwatches, both of which fall under the Michael Kors brand.
This is not the first time Michael Kors has designed wearable items. Access Bradshaw, Access Dylan, and Access Hybrid are some of the linked devices that are offered by the American luxury fashion brand known as Access. Also, the Access Crosby activity band, which came out last year, was its first step into the fitness tracker market.
Both of the new watches run on Android Wear 2.0 and have nearly identical specifications, despite the fact that their appearances couldn’t be more different from one another. This contains the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor along with 512MB of random access memory (RAM), 4GB of built-in storage, and other internal components. However, it is clear just by looking at them that the sophisticated and girly Sophie is aimed at the female subset of the population, and the rugged and manly Grayson is marketed for the male portion of the community.
And design is pretty much the key feature that sets the watches apart from the rest of the Fossil range. [As an example:][As an example:]Customers who want new technology, social connections, and great style will want these products.
The casing body of the Sofie is ultra-thin and lightweight, and it boasts a pavé bezel as well as a full round 1.19-inch touchscreen display. It has a casing that is 42 millimeters in diameter and comes in a total of eight unique plating and bracelet configurations, in addition to seven distinct quick-release interchangeable strap choices. You can also customize the watch face so that it matches your personal taste. With the smartphone software that goes with the watch, you can also use a picture from Instagram as the face of your watch.
The Grayson has a larger case than the other one, measuring 47 millimeters, and a touchscreen display of 1.39 inches. It exudes an air of both opulence and athleticism. It boasts a whole new display face with high quality and a rotating crown that allows for speedy browsing between apps, watch faces, and other content. Grayson also has a wider strap than Sophie does, which is 24 millimeters in width as opposed to 18 millimeters.
Look elsewhere if you want a heart rate monitor or more advanced functions for tracking your fitness. They are not going to be found. These watches have an accelerometer and gyroscope to track your steps, distance traveled, calories burned, and amount of sleep you get.After all, this is more about looking good by wearing a fashionable timepiece and being updated by the notifications on your smartphone than anything else.

The battery life is not very impressive, which is a shame. The watches should remain operational for approximately twenty-four hours after receiving a full charge. It takes two hours to charge them up to their maximum capacity.
Both of these smartwatches are now available to purchase on Amazon beginning today.
