I am not joining the Apple Club, but heard this on the news this morning and it made me smile...

Apparently using this shiny new iWatch whilst driving will apparently carry the same sentence as using a mobile phone in the car......

So best to leave your watch at home then ...Bouncy

Surely that will also apply to some DROID watches?

Attempting to drive your car whilst driving will be the next thing to be made illegal..... Just in case you're not fully concentrating on driving wink

This won't happen, it's just more conjecture to do with Apple. It also says a lot about the mentality portrayed by the press about Apple product users - not my opinion just an observation. Smiley LOL

Agree...it does give them more publicity though....

And as someone on the news report stated...'How the heck will this be implemented?...Police are not getting to grips with people who use mobiles in cars...and now we are expecting them to monitor watch activity? Rolleys

An interesting read Cleoriff ~ Thank you.

As it's not released till 2015 I'm sure the media will be furling the fire as time goes by.
