Michael Kors launches improved Sofie Heart Rate smartwatch, prices start at $325
The Sofie Heart Rate is available in five colors – Pave Rose Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, Pave Two-Tone, and Gold, for as low as $325. Officially unveiled early this year, Michael Kors' new smartwatch runs Wear OS and is fully compatible with iPhone and Android phones.
Unlike the original model, the new Sofie Heart Rate features built-in GPS, NFC (Near Field Communication) payment technology, heart rate tracking, and swimproof technology (water resistant up to 30m). Also, it comes with an AMOLED display, 4GB internal storage, and a 300 mAh battery.
Design-wise, the smartwatch is made of stainless steel and features interchangeable straps. According to Michael Kors, in addition to the three classic stainless steel platings and the two-tone glitz version models, the Sofie Heart Rate will also be offered in alligator-stamped silicone. Moreover, brown and plum stainless steel platings, along with grey silicone, will be made available this fall.
