Even with Apple’s current struggle to meet demand for the Apple Watch, that doesn’t mean that a few devices were ordered for the sake of drama. The Apple Watch Sport being the less expensive and most common has been a target of torture tests recently, and so far we’ve seen that its display is anything but indestructible, but what about the aluminum or its watch bands? More videos have emerged with details.
CNET has just posted its usual torture test for the Apple Watch Sport, and you’d be surprised at how much it can take. The device was submerged for 10 minutes under water, and then was tested on boiling water as well. We even saw the white watchband tested for stains with products like wine, soy sauce and others, and even then, it survived. The drop tests were probably the crudest of all, and we still saw the Apple Watch survive them all. It wasn’t until a heavy skillet was used to hammer the device that the display shattered, even though we feel this could’ve been the result of so many drop tests.
So far it seems that the Apple Watch Sport is strong enough to take a beating, but we’ll let our After The Buzz series be the judge of that.
