11. MICHAEL KORS ACCESS Runway Two-Tone Smartwatch MKT5047
For a darker alternative to the MKT5046 in rose gold tone comes this two tone smartwatch. Sharing the same case and innards as the other smartwatches in the Access Runway series, the MKT5047 has a two-tone stainless steel bracelet, a mix of dark gray and rose gold. This gives it a more serious tone. The two buttons and a crown in dark tone on the right side of the dial completes the look. As with all Access Runway smartwatches, this one runs on Google Wear OS, has up to 24 hours battery life with an hours charge and is swim proof.
12. MICHAEL KORS ACCESS Runway Rose Gold-Tone and Silicone Smartwatch MKT5048
Take the case off the MKT5052 or 5046 and slap on a sporty pair of silicone straps in light pink and you have yourself a classy casual watch. The Michael Kors MKT5048 may not be as glitzy or chunky as those with stainless steel strap but has all the same features as other smartwatch in the Access Runway series. The silicone strap will certainly feel better and won’t be out of place when you hit the gym and as it is swim proof, you can even take it for a swim.
13. Fossil Explorist HR Black Leather FTW4017P
Another entry from Fossil, the explorist has a rose gold case paired with black leather strap. Like other watches here, the strap is interchangeable. The watch has a rugged feel to it with big buttons on the right and bezel with details.
14. Fossil Venture HR Blush Leather – Gen 4
The fourth generation smartwatch from Fossil uses a similar blush pink band but the Fossil offering not one or two but three buttons. Powered by Wear OS by Google, the watch supports Google Play store and apps, Google Pay, GPS, Heart Rate monitor during workout, swim proof (water resistance up to 3ATM), custom dials, the usual smartphone notifications via Bluetooth and activity tracking. It is also worth noting that the buttons are customisable to give you direct control over music, date and time function and more. Having extra buttons does make it look even more like conventional time pieces. In reality, the touchscreen negates the need for buttons, but we like the aesthetics of it including the jewel studded surround on the 40mm case.
15. Garmin Vivomove HR Hybrid Smart Watch Rose Gold with White Band
Moving away from smartwatches based on Wear OS, the Garmin Vivomove HR is our next smartwatch in rose gold case. The sporty smartwatch is paired with white silicone strap. It is a hybrid watch so you have a traditional dial but the clever watch face shows relevant information while maintaining a metal like finish. It is capable of round the clock heart rate monitoring, wellness monitoring to track your stress and relaxation timer and fitness monitoring. The latter includes monitoring of VO2 max and fitness.
The display on the watch face shows steps, calories, distance, heart rate and intensity minutes. The watch is clever enough to move the hands away to display what is on the bottom half of the screen when you swipe over the touchscreen. As it is not a full face display screen and does not require a lot of power, the battery life lasts up to 5 days which is 4 days more than most watches featured here. If you turn off the smarts and use it as a watch only, it will last for up to 2 weeks. There is also rose gold case paired with black strap which looks rather classy.
