Today, Apple announced that after examining the band and the watch, it has come to the conclusion that there is no evidence showing that the Apple Watch was responsible for Mr. Mouritzen's injuries. Apple went on to add that the damage to the band is from an external source, and that there are no electronics in the band that could heat up and burn a user.
Through its Danish PR firm, Apple says that it considers this to be a private matter between the company and Mouritzen, so it will not be commenting on the situation. The pictures though, tell a story, and a rather gruesome one at that. A Photo of the victim's wrist shows two deep burn marks, while a photo of the wrist band shows that it has been burned as well.
Mouritzen has asked Apple to replace the watch that was destroyed in the incident. Since the company is keeping mum about the whole affair, we are not sure if the device was replaced.
Apple warns owners of the Apple Watch that some materials used in the construction of the device can cause a reaction, although that doesn't seem to be the issue in this situation.
