Apple Watch burn leaves grill marks on man’s wrist

This article contains an image that some may find disturbing.

Bursting batteries are a common cause of electronics burns and they are definitely not enjoyable. It’s been an everlasting concern on devices like the ZTE ZMax and the iPhones, too. Any device can actually be a horrid third-degree heat wound waiting to happen if the right triggers get involved.

One Jørgen Mouritzen from Denmark found that apparently all you need to scar yourself with an Apple Watch and the metallic Milanese Loop band.

Mouritzen said he had just entered into his aviation club’s bathroom on October 17 and then suddenly caught the smell of burning flesh, which was when he felt the pain shooting up from his left wrist — set alight by the Apple Watch.

His right hand also suffered burns from unbuckling the now-glowing watch.

Mouritzen believes that the Apple Watch he got from Sweden is the source of the burns and not from an external source like the air dryer. A witness to the event agreed with Mouritzen’s assessment.

A month after he first reported the incident to Apple and after several media requests for comment, the company said it is still investigating and will not comment on individual matters.

Mouritzen said that while he’s not out for revenge, he’s very disappointed about the customer service he’s gotten.
