Hi. On September 9th 2014, Apple released to the world the iPhone 6 and 6 plus and the Apple Watch
Tim Cook, the SEO of Apple said, “Apple Watch is the most personal device we’ve ever created”
Personal it maybe, but will it be durable. We managed to get our hands on an Apple Watch 38mm Sapphire screen, here it is.
Stay tuned and by the end of the video we would have tested the screens resistance to scratches and to see how durable this screen is.
A lot of thought has gone into the manufacturing process and into the materials used to make the Apple Watch. For example the Apple Watch is made out of stainless steel and has a Sapphire glass screen.
The Apple sports Watch is made out of anodized aluminium which is lighter than stainless steel and has an Ion-X glass screen which is more shatter proof and more impact resistant than the Sapphire glass.
The Special Edition Apple Watch is made out of 18 karat gold and also has a sapphire screen display.
So here’s what you’ve been waiting for, The Scratch Test. First, the Apple Watch screen is rubbed against a stone wall.
Then the Apple Watch has a coin rubbed across its screen.
Then the Apple Watch screen has a key rubbed across it. Abrasive paper is rubbed on the Apple Watch screen. A hammer is tapped onto the Apple Watch screen, and finally a power drill is placed against the Apple watch screen.
Taking a close look at the Apple Watch screen after the scratch test, there are no marks or scratches on the screen.
So there you have it, from our primitive tests you can see that the sapphire glass is pretty strong. Virtually impossible to scratch.
