The RNLI has said that has become the first UK charity to launch an app that can be used on the new Apple Watch.

The lifeboat charity’s H2Only app, which is available to download for free from today, was designed to support the RNLI’s H2Only fundraising challenge, which encourages people to give up all drinks except water for 10 days from 2 June.

Participants can use the app to complete daily challenges, track their sponsorship totals, share photos and join teams.

"The RNLI has a proud history of innovation – from our methods of fundraising over the years to the pioneering designs of our lifeboats," said Ailsa Mackenzie, digital project manager at the RNLI. "We are really excited to be the first charity based in the UK to have an app for the new Apple Watch."

An earlier version of the app – for use on phones and tablets – was launched on the Apple App Store and the Google Play service in April 2014. It was developed by the digital agency 3 Sided Cube, which also worked on readying the app for use with the watch.
