Drivers could put themselves and others at risk by using the Apple Watch while behind the wheel, a road safety charity claims.
The Institute of Advanced Motorists said the watch, which will allow users to make and receive calls and check messages by operating the device on their wrists, could be a major cause of distraction that could impair driving performance.
"Constant alerts will require motorists' regular attention. As opposed to using a legal hands-free piece of equipment, the (Apple) iWatch will require drivers to use two hands to operate the device - impacting speed, lane position and time spent looking at the road," the IAM said.
IAM policy and research director Neil Greig warned that police have the power to seize and interrogate devices in the event of a serious crash.
"The very device that distracted you also has the power to convict you," he said.
Apple has taken a record four million orders for the two new iPhone 6 models in the first 24 hours following last week's launch.
The figure is double the number of pre-orders taken for the iPhone 5 in September 2012.
The technology giant said that demand for the smartphones, which boast larger screens, outstripped the initial supply and that some customers would have to wait until October.
However, customers in Britain will be able to buy some stock of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from 8am Friday in Apple stores. It has been generally well received by reviewers.
It will run on Apple's iOS 8 software, which will be available to download on Wednesday for existing devices.
