Apple Watch Ultra – Smashed with a hammer
I put my new Apple Watch Ultra on for the first time last week and went for a run. Within 10 minutes I had banged it onto a metal bar on the nearby Teddington footbridge.Grrr.
I have a history of scratched Apple Watches yet have still dutifully worn my AW6 despite a couple of minor gouges on the right-hand side. My partner nabbed my stainless steel (+Gorilla Glass) Watch 7 some time ago and, to be fair, that isn’t scratched. Anyway, I feared the worst as my thousand-pound watch is uninsured. Gulp.
I shouldn’t have worried though. Everything was fine and neither the metal casing nor the screen was damaged at all. That was all a relief and I then naturally assumed that it would take more of a battering. But how much more? Well, Tech Rex answered my question in the following video where he smashes the Watch Ultra to pieces with increasingly harder blows of a sledgehammer. It seems pretty robust although his ‘test’ did not have the Watch Ultra on a super-hard surface. Even so…
Then we have Ray’s test where he submerges it in a very special cup.
