The Apple Watch Torture Porn Film Festival

Inspired by the YouTube phenomenon Will it Blend? and perhaps with a nod to the horror film series Saw, some sadists lucky enough to have an Apple Watch wasted no time torturing the poor thing. On video.

We’ve already seen viral videos in which testers tried to scratch the hell out of Apple Watch’s sapphire crystal and Ion-X glass. Another video, ingeniously entitled “Apple Watch Waterproof Test,” features a dude showering and swimming with an Apple Watch Sport, which Apple markets as “water-resistant,” not “water proof.” Will the watch survive?

In “Apple Watch Hammer & Knife Scratch Test” by the same guys (FoneFox) who water-boarded the watch, we even get slow-mo replays of sharp knife cuts and hammer beatings.  

And in what may be the ultimate Apple Watch torture porn video, CNET’s Sharon Profis pits an Apple Watch Sport with white band against a cheese grater, boiling water, and red wine spillage. She drops the watch multiple times from a kitchen counter onto a hard floor. Oh, the humanity.

The bottom line to these videos: Apple Watch is surprisingly durable—but not invulnerable.

BTW: I don’t see a Will it Blend? video yet on the Apple Watch. In the meantime, you can watch what happens when an iPhone 6 Plus gets the torture porn treatment.
