Phones may be carried but only be used to take photos or to call for assistance in the incident of an accident or emergency. Otherwise, phones should always be in aeroplane mode.

Watches may only be used to display time, compass and altitude.
Recording fitness app data is permitted, but this data cannot be displayed on the device screen or accessed during the course of the event.
