After last year, it is great to see that 2021 shapes up to be a bit better, and the smartwatch world agrees! Michael Kors has announced the new Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci smartwatch, and we couldn’t be more excited. Not only is the new offering full of great features, but it will give some sparkle to your life. Check out our review right now!
What is the Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci Design Like?
Interestingly, the ‘E’ in Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci stands for ‘essential’. Letting new users know that their daily needs are achieved with this new watch. However, when we first saw it, luxury sprang to mind rather than essential! This new watch not only offers necessities but comes housed in a beautiful casing. It boasts sparkles, jewels, and a range of colour options to suit your style.
It looks like an upmarket watch, with a stainless steel case and a bracelet strap in a stunning link style. The watch face is 19-inches and comes with a full AMOLED display so that it’s crystal clear. There are also many great features that you will enjoy when you are going about your daily life.
What Features Does the Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci Offer?
The new Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci comes with great features. These include Bluetooth capability to take calls, Google Pay, step tracker, calorie counter, heart rate monitor, sleep tracker, and a connected GPS distance tracker.
For Fitness, you can monitor your cardio health by combining data input and output of your daily efforts. You can enjoy the typical fitness features we expect from smartwatches and use the companion app to track improvement.
If you are hoping to take it for a swim, unfortunately, this device is only showerproof. Even then, we’d suggest you take it off when you want to use the bathroom so that you don’t accidentally break it.
How Good is the Gen 5E Darci Battery?
The official answer to how long the battery life on the new Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci is that you can expect around 36 hours of use before charging. This is pretty impressive for a smartwatch–that’s a full day!
There are a few different battery modes to choose from if you need to extend your battery use. The software that runs the watch is not an energy guzzler. You can be confident you won’t suddenly run out of power when you need it the most.
As with all smartwatches, the more features you use, the quicker your battery will drain. Make sure you only run the features you need rather than letting things you don’t wear your battery out faster than you would like it to.
How Much Does the Gen 5E Darci Cost?
The Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci starts at $350, which is not a shock when you consider the system that runs it and its high-quality materials. However, it is not a cheap watch, so it may be too pricey for some to splurge on. Instead, why not wait until your birthday or Christmas and treat yourself when there is a good reason – it will be money well spent!
When is the Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci Released?
We do not have a specific release date. However it has been confirmed for Spring 2021, so the wait is almost over. Fossil owns The Michael Kors watch brand, so look to them for regular updates and announcements.
Is the Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci Just for Women?
The Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci is designed with women in mind, but men aren’t left out! They announced this model and the partner model Gen 5E MKGO at the same time.
This alternative model is designed with men in mind and offers a subtle approach to the luxury watch. The MKGO is also cheaper than the Darci and has the same release date, so you can treat yourselves to his and her watches without feeling left out!
Should I Buy a Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci?
If you want your wrist to look stylish, but you can’t afford to pay thousands for a watch, then the Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci is a perfect choice. It’s not in everyone’s price range, but this watch costs more because it offers something pretty special in both looks and design. When you consider that there is a companion option for men, then it’s a great buy for your favourite couple or an anniversary.
Whether you are heading out on a jog or have a 9 am board meeting, your new Michael Kors Gen 5E Darci will fit right in and be able to give you the insights you need to make the most of your daily life. However, if you are still wavering, don’t worry; you have some time to consider your options before it is released. If you want our advice, we’d say go for it!
