ESSENTIAL HEALTH & WELLNESS FEATURES

Whether it’s ensuring long battery life so you can track your sleep, track steps or enjoy the benefits of tracking your estimated heart rate— the Michael Kors Access Gen 5E MKGO and Gen 5E Darci styles will support you every step of the way with our latest wellness innovations.
Phone App Updates: Design refinements, including a new Phone tile and the addition of contact avatars, allow for quick access to ongoing call status, previous call history, and improved overall usability. Both Android and iPhone users can continue to answer tethered calls right from their wrists.
Optimized Activity Tracker: Break a sweat without losing the charge with battery-saving workouts. The new Wellness App monitors real-time metrics and optimizes battery life by shifting power consumption off the main processor. Track the essential estimated health readouts you truly care about like heart rate, pace, distance, steps, and more.
Sleep Tracking: Track sleep history, monitor your restfulness, and set sleep goals. With Gen 5E’s ability to quickly charge (50 minutes to 80%) and enhanced battery modes, the watch can be worn all day and night. Charge while getting ready in the morning and go.
New Look & Features For Battery Mode: Updates include custom profile creation and a simplified design for easier readability. Custom Mode allows users to save an individual profile to fit their life (create a mode for workouts or after-work hours and more) and quickly access. To ensure extended battery life, the watch will prompt users to switch to Extended Mode.
Cardio Fitness Tracking: Cardio fitness level can be one of the best indicators of overall cardiorespiratory health and is often used in tracking long-term health. The new tracker shows an estimation of cardio fitness using resting heart rate and user biometrics (age, gender, weight) to display an approximated overall fitness level over time.
