How To Care For Your Michael Kors Watch
We would advise knowing your watch’s water resistance, and avoid swimming in your watch if it is 3 or 5 ATM, as this splash proof or built to withstand being submerged in water only. Use a soft cloth to clean metal watch cases and bracelet straps regularly, and store your watch in the original box it came in when you are not wearing it.
Any Michael Kors watch that is bought in Europe will come with a two-year warranty, as long as there is proof of purchase. This means that the watch can be repaired or replaced free of charge in certain circumstances.
- Are Michael Kors watches adjustable?
Micheal Kors watches that feature a leather strap are adjustable, and easily secured with a classic buckle fastening. The brand’s stainless steel watches with a bracelet strap can be adjusted by removing links at most watch repair shops and jewellers, but Michael Kors stores are unable to offer a watch adjustment service.
- Are Michael Kors watches waterproof?
Whether your Michael Kors watch is waterproof will depend on the individual style, but most of the brand’s watches are water resistant up to 5 ATM. The Michael Kors Access Runway and Sofie Heart Rate smartwatches are swimproof. They are designed to be water resistant up to 30M, and these specific styles pass a 10,000-stroke swim test and can also be worn while in the shower or swimming in shallow water. It is worth noting that the microphone and touchscreen may not work properly while the watch is in water.
- Are Michael Kors watches battery operated?
Most Michael Kors watches are battery operated, and will last around two years before they will need to be replaced.
The brand’s smartwatches have a battery life of up to 24 hours, depending on usage. Smartwatch batteries can be charged with a cable into a USB port on your computer or another low-energy device. You can maximize battery life turning off any notifications you do not want, adjusting the screen brightness and uninstalling Apps.
