Driver warning for Apple Watch buyers

Drivers are being warned that they could face a fine of £100 and three penalty points if they use the new Apple Watch whilst driving.

The Department for Transport warns that using the £220 watch is illegal, whether drivers use it to read emails, surf the Web or check social media.

In more severe cases drivers caught operating the watch could be fined up to £1000 and a ban.

Nevertheless, at the current time it's legal to use hands-free phones or sat navs, so the law seems sketchy on this one until further clarification is put out.
