Apple Watch wins iF Design Award for 2015

Although the Apple Watch hasn't shipped yet and there's no guarantee that it will be a success in the marketplace, it has already won a prestigious design award. On February 27 in Munich, Germany, the Apple Watch was awarded the gold in the watches/jewelry category at the iF Design Awards 2015.

The juror's statement says it all:

The idea of combining classic materials such as leather and metal with state-of-the-art technology to create a very individual fashion accessory has resulted in a delightful product offering a holistic user experience. The Apple Watch scores highly for each design detail and is an altogether extraordinary piece of design. For us, it is already an icon.

Apple also picked up iF Design Awards for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6 Silicone Case, and iPhone 6 Leather Case. Overall, the company is ranked 7th in the iF
