They can also connect Apple Watch to Apple Watch with a new technology called digital touch.

It will also send reminders to remind wearers to be more active, and will send them a report of how they did the previous week.

"It's like having a coach on your wrist," Tim Cook, Apple CEO says at the launch in San Francisco.

Apple has announced its lightest ever MacBook.

The notebook, which weighs just two pounds and is 13.1mm at its thickest point, is its first fanless Macbook and will be available in silver, space grey or gold.

Apple said it is "the most extreme and efficient" notebook they have ever created.

It has a longer battery life providing up to nine hours of web browsing.

The MacBook was announced at the launch event of the Apple Watch in San Francisco.

It will cost 1,599 US dollars (£1,057) and shipping will begin on April 10, Apple said.

The head of technology giant Apple believes privacy is a "basic human right" and no government or private company should be able to access personal information, he said in an interview.

Tim Cook, CEO of the US firm, also said invading people's privacy would not solve the issue of terrorism and would punish the "99.999% of people who are good".

His comments come amid a debate in the UK over whether security agencies should be given access to people's personal data such as emails to help detect potentially-violent extremists.

Mr Cook told the Daily Telegraph:

None of us should accept that the Government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right. We all have a right to privacy. We shouldn't give in to scaremongering or to people who fundamentally don't understand the details.

History has taught us that privacy breaches have resulted in very dire consequences. You don't have to look back too far or be a historian to see these things. They are readily apparent.

You don't want to eliminate everyone's privacy. If you do, you not only don't solve the terrorist issue but you also take away something that is a human right. The consequences of doing that are very significant.

– Tim Cook, CEO, Apple
