Really, Michael Kors? You're calling your new Android Wear-powered smartwatch the "Access Bradshaw"? That sounds like the worst new podcast on the Fox Sports website. Oh well, if you really must - at least it's somewhat consistent with the equally awful name of the Access Dylan. The former is up on the Google Store for the same $350 price as the latter. It's shipping right now, if you're desperate to get into the depressingly shrunken wearables market before the end of the year.
Whereas the Access Dylan has the look of a sports watch with its chunky case and rubber strap, the Bradshaw is more of a dress watch design, with a full metal body and link strap. You can have any color you want, as long as you want gold, and unfortunately the Moto 360-style "flat tire" circular display returns from the original model, now much more visible thanks to the color. At 45mm wide and 13mm thick it's not going to wear well for women (or even men on the smaller side).
Inside the Access Bradshaw is Qualcomm's wearable-only Snapdragon 2100 processor, which should make the 400mAh battery last for quite a while. 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage match up with most of the previous Wear designs, and this model does indeed include Wi-Fi. There's a wireless charger and an extra buckle included in the box.
