The Access range of Michael Kors’ Android Wear smartwatches is now available for purchase in the U.S. with a starting price of $350. These wearables are priced at $350 and up, with the top end variant in the Bradshaw range priced at $395. So one can say that even though this is a luxury smartwatch lineup, customers won’t end up spending a bombshell to get them.

The entry level version is known as the Access Dylan, which comes in standard Black and Gold versions. The Access Bradshaw range comes in a multitude of options which includes a Gold/Acetate model. The Dylan range is priced moderately at $350, while the Bradshaw lineup will start from $350 and extend up to $395 depending on the model you choose.

The key differentiating factor between the two apart from the watch band variations is the thickness of the bands. The cheaper Dylan model¬†has slightly thicker bands at 46mm, while the Bradshaw lineup has 44.5mm watch bands. That’s a significant difference in size and something that will help customers tell the two models apart. You can snatch up the wearables now from the Michael Kors website.

Michael Kors is a renowned brand in the fashion industry and we even saw the brand make its way to #AndroidWear in the form of a watchface recently. Well, the brand clearly wants to increase its presence in Google’s smartwatch ecosystem as it has just announced the release of a new smartwatch line, known as the Michael Kors Access. The smartwatches will have varying bands and will include an attractive looking gold option as well.

Needless to say, the designer brand has been wise enough to go with a circular display (flat tire), so you’re getting that elegant look and feel here. The Access will not be available at least until Fall 2016 and will carry a price tag of $395, which is in line with the diver-focused smartwatch that was released by Nixon yesterday.

If there’s one complaint we have here, it’s that the company is opting for the often critiqued flat tire display that we saw on the Moto 360. Barring that, the Michael Kors Access screams of luxury and should appeal to a wide range of fans out there.
