Legendary woman and style icon Iris Apfel never fails to entertain us. This time, at 94 years of age, it is with the creation of a line of wearable tech that will make your iWatch shiver with fear. Behold: WiseWear.
But what is it, really? Because wearable tech can mean a lot of things. For Iris Apfel, it means a smart (wise!) piece of jewelry thought for women to stay safe, connected with their health and with the world, while being fashionable. Because something technologically advanced doesn’t need to look like you found it on the floor of a mechanic’s workshop and put it on your wrist. Iris Apfel gets it.
The first WiseWear collection is called Socialite, and it’s basically a bracelet that can receive notifications from your phone and track your daily activity to keep you healthy. It also has a precious safety function that will send a message and location to a pre-approved list of emergency contacts at your command.
The pre-orders are open now. We want 6.
