I received my Kate Spade Smartwatch about two weeks ago and I’ve had a chance to explore the pros and cons and decide whether or not it’s worth the money. Keep reading for a comprehensive Kate Spade Smartwatch Review.
Kate Spade Smart Watch Review
Overall, I have really enjoyed my watch. I LOVE to be connected, just like every other millennial. I also have a lot of back to back meetings, so it’s nice to have my email on me or keep up with what’s next when I don’t have my phone, computer or planner on me.
Kate Spade is one of my favorite brands, so obviously the design of this watch is right up my alley. I love the balance of fashion and function this watch brings unlike anything else I’ve seen on the market.
The scallop details around the face make the watch feel ultra feminine and with several different watch straps, it’s easy to find one that fits your everyday style. I went with the blush strap since it is neutral enough to match just about every outfit I wear.
Kate Spade Watch Faces
Along with the chic outward appearance the Kate Spade Smartwatch offers several Kate Spade designed watch faces to complete your #OOTD. I prefer the gold balloon letters with either a navy or black background pending my outfit. I also love the daisy face for something a little more flashy. Below are the face options for this watch.
Clarity of the Screen
The Kate Spade Smartwatch has a SUPER clear screen. Most people have iPhones, so I was a little skeptical, but the screen is very clear and easy to read. It also lights up the screen when making the motion of reading the time which is very user-friendly.
There are surprisingly a lot of features within the smartwatch to make it fit within your life. It also taps into the Google Play store so you can download more apps like Spotify or Pandora to make it even more customizable.
I wouldn’t consider me an athletic type, but I really enjoy counting my steps. I’m lucky enough to have a job that encourages their employees to be active, so if I check my steps I can take a lap around the building to meet my step goal.
Compatibility with IOS
The compatibility is a little limited with IOS, however, I blame Apple for this and not Kate Spade. It’s no surprise that Apple wants to keep it within the family, so, unfortunately, you cannot utilize the speaker in the watch if you have an iPhone.
You can see who’s calling and accept or deny, but you have to hop on your phone to actually talk. Additionally, you can see who texts you, but you can’t reply from the watch directly.
Like I said unless it’s an Apple watch you’ll see this across the market.
Overall, I would say I really like my Kate Spade Smartwatch. Since receiving it I’ve worn it every day and have become quite addicted to having the accessibility on my wrist. I would definitely recommend this for a gift or save up and splurge on it!
