In these confusing times that sees wearable devices posing as fashion accessories, Iris Apfel, the eccentric 94-year-old style icon and star of ‘Iris’ has risen to the challenge, creating stylish options for those of us that struggle with the idea of wearing a rubber bracelet very day.
“I have watched the ‘wearable’ market evolve,” says Apfel.
“As I see more of these devices come to fruition, I see the focus on function with a missed mark on form”.
The result is an (ever so stylish) collaboration with wearable technology group, Wise Wear, to create fashion jewellery embedded with technology that allows the wearer to do all the things you’d expect from a health tracker, (monitoring steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned and even your level of hydration) in addition to tracking incoming calls, texts, and emails. The added bonus however is a ‘personal security’ option that, with a simple tap, sends a distress signal and your geolocation to your emergency contacts in seconds.
