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.
