Will it soon be illegal to look at your watch while driving?

Posted on by Mike Evans

The Apple Watch is so capable that the implications for drivers will soon have to be faced. Already using a phone (or, if we want to be extreme, an iPad) while behind the wheel is considered anti-social and downright dangerous. But up to now glancing at the wrist watch has been a fairly harmless occupation. No longer, I suspect. The Apple Watch opens up the full range of communications possibilities with the corresponding dangers that will come from distraction. It will be interesting to see how governments and road-safety experts react to this latest advance in technology.
