See the Apple Watch get dropped, scratched, boiled, grated and dunked in ketchup

See the Apple Watch get dropped, scratched, boiled, grated and dunked in ketchup
Apple protects its Watch with sapphire or tempered glass, depending on the model, but that doesn't mean a good ol' drop test isn't going to get done on its unsuspecting face, or that it will remain unscathed, regardless of how light and durable the accessory might sound.

In the trio of drop tests below, the Apple Watch, which will start you off at $350, gets subjected to a very plausible scenario - you are trying to put it on your wrist, adjusting the strap, and it falls from about waist height. 

As you can see, the wearable doesn't take these drops lightly, and its screen gets cracked to pieces when it hits the pavement. Word to the wise - be careful when you put on your smart Apple Watch, as there are no cases for it... yet.

All I can say is, Apple Watch can still sell thousand or million units within a year. And for the record, people still going to buy any Apple products.

still don't understand all this blind hatred toward apple products. it feels like phonearena is full of 16 year old apple hating teenagers that have zero appreciation for design and product engineering recently bought a lg g watch and i find android wear to be mostly useless platform for no specific direction. although i am not buying the first gen apple watch. i still find apple watch to be best executed smartwatch that has no competitor at this point in terms of design and functionalities ie wifi support, nfc payment, fitness tracking, ecosystem.

I agree here's the difference IMO , which shows the philosophy of the 2 companies. Apple watch is app centric device with a focus on app functionality , while Android wear is a google now cards and notifications device. IMO Apps win , but thats just me.

finally, a rational person with a more adjective view, a notifications accessory is a hardsell, as much as i admire google' vision in driverless technology, bringing internet to the masses and all their ideology, google is clearly not a company that focuses on consumer products and user experience. personnally i think an smartwatch needs to be a standalone device that should be personal mini computer on your wrist

"adjective view" is so profound ;). But I totally agree with seven and you. I don't think they are 16 years old boys. I guess they get paid for spamming tech sites. Well that suits exactly the policies of one famous company in android world which is...

Do you understand the blind hatred toward Samsung or Android?

Have you seen it? I think there are some people but that's not a trend. I personally hate Samsung products because I had S3 their flagship at the time and my experience was awkward. I thought like I've been fooled by some numbers. But if you want to think of our (negative) opinions on Samsung as a trend or blind hatred, then you are not objective yourself.

The irony in the selective arguing above is cute.

Yes, I've seen it. A lot. You have folks here who jump from article to article on Samsung or Android just to make hate comments. I also had the S3, up until last November. It was a fantastic phone, the best if it's time. And it held up well for the next two years. I've since jumped to the Note 4, the first device that pulled me from the S3, the first that felt like a truly worthy upgrade.

i don't hate android, in fact I've only owned android phones but I will never pay $800 for one.

I wasn't implying you hated Android, just that the blind hate goes both ways, while you're singling out only one side.

as a frequent visitor of this website, i'd say phonearena is predominantly anti-apple

Finally! I've been calling for the ketchup test for years.

11. seven7dust unregistered

that strap is pretty awesome though , cleans out anything so easily ,you have to admit it's nice even if you hate Apple. I thought the sports band will fail , but it seems to be the best of the bands after milanese loop.

What strap? I didn't watch the video as I have no intent on buying. I was just amused at using ketchup as a test.

25. seven7dust unregistered

the sports strap, it uses a new material thats very easy to clean and waterproof.
