Want the function of a Fitbit without sacrificing style? WiseWear is a new tech brand making wearables that jewelry buffs actually want to wear. With a thumbs-up from fashion icon Iris Apfel—the face of the brand who’ll be designing future styles—the gorgeous line of chunky accessories offers activity tracking and mobile notifications. They’re not cheap ($395 at, but this wearable has the added function of distress messaging, so if you find yourself in a creepy situation, you can discreetly send a text to a pre-approved list of contacts along with a geo-tagged location. Wise wear indeed.
