Wearable tech is buzzy, sure, but aesthetics haven’t been its crowning achievement. In fact, most style-aware women wouldn’t touch it with a 10-foot pole, to put it bluntly.
In an unexpected turn of events, the world’s most stylish nonagenarian, Iris Apfel, has taken it upon her 93-year-old shoulders to design a collection of wearable technology that actually looks like real jewelry. Created in collaboration with Wise Wear, the $300 accessories were created to help women monitor their health without sacrificing style.
The sleek pieces can track activity, give mobile notifications, and even have safety functions, which can alert selected contacts in case of an emergency. Additionally, the 18-karat-gold or palladium-plated pieces are waterproof and have a battery charge that lasts up to three days.
Apfel told Mashable that the pieces are “on the conservative side,” but that they can be “mixed with a few more la-de-da pieces.”
And your grandma can’t even text!
