UK Cabinet meetings have gotten less breathy and have been discharged of modern jewelry as Prime Minister Theresa May’s administration has banned the use of the Apple Watch during them.

Already, mobile phones were given the boot for the very same security concerns that have affected the Apple Watch. That threat may be coming from Russia.

“The Russians are trying to hack everything,” said one source to The Telegraph.

There has been evidence, but not definitive proof that Russian government actors were behind a hack on the Democratic National Committee that led to the leak of thousands of emails. They were also tipped to be behind the leak of Olympic athletes’ health records that was in retribution for the International Olympic Committee’s ban on most of the Russian track team due to doping charges. Russia has denied these charges.

Former education secretary Michael Gove was once caught using his Apple Watch to check his email but ended up inadvertantly playing a Beyonce song.
