‘Wallpaper’ names Apple Watch Hermès as year’s best ‘life enhancer’

Wallpaper, a website dedicated to “the stuff that refines you,” has named the Apple Watch Hermès as the best “life enhancer” of the year in its Design Awards 2016, calling it a “smartwatch pairing Apple’s pioneering innovation with Hermès’ uncompromising craftsmanship.”

Here’s what Wallpaper has to say about the smartwatch/band combo: “High style and tech smarts have never been more in sync than in this year’s surprise pairing: the Apple Watch Hermès. The initial Apple Watch launch, back in April, came close to breaking the internet (or at least the pavement outside Apple stores globally), and this latest amalgamation of craftsmanship and technology hit a luxury high when it was announced in September. So now, in addition to sleep tracking, step counting and waving for contactless payment, serious fashion cred is well within arm’s reach.”
