The 300-and-up Apple Watch appears to be the first fitness device to offer extensive wheelchair capabilities. GPS wristwatches can measure distance and speed fairly accurately, but calorie measurements assume moving the entire body, said Dawna Callahan, a four-time wheelchair finisher in the Boston Marathon and director of programs at Challenged Athletes. In addition, GPS devices aren't good for all-day tracking because of battery constraints.

An'extremely rare' Apple computer, which was the first ever PC to come with a mouse, is expected to fetch £30,000 ($40,000) at auction. The 1983 Lisa-1 computer was also the first to use icons instead of simple text. It introduced features still common on computers today, such as overlapping windows, pull-down menus and the recycle bin. The auction will take place on November 11 in Cologne, Germany. The Apple Lisa 1 machine was revolutionary as it was the first PC to allow users to interact with the device using the mouse tool.
