How Durable Is The Apple Watch

The Apple Watch is much more durable than you think

The Apple Watch is much more durable than you think

Writing for iMore, Greg Koenig provides a fascinating and thorough look into the build quality of the recently released Apple Watch. As anyone who has ever seen an Apple product unveiling can attest, Apple takes a tremendous amount of pride in the materials it uses and the processes it employs to create its products. Indeed, some of Apple’s innovations extend beyond consumer electronics to include advanced manufacturing techniques as well.

All that said, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that the build quality and durability on the Apple Watch is quite high. Regarding the Apple Watch Sport collection, presumably poised to be the most popular, Koenig writes that Apple opted to go with a 7000 series aluminum alloy, resulting in an extremely hard casing that should make it extremely difficult for users to scratch, dent, or even scuff up even with heavy use.

Apple Watch Accidental Damage and Warranty

Here are the horrifying damages your Apple Watch warranty will cover

Here are the horrifying damages your Apple Watch warranty will cover

Sure, the Apple Watch has amazing build quality, and any version seems to be sturdy enough to withstand plenty of accidents including drops, scratches and dunks in water to name just a few. But the device is not indestructible, and some people have already started putting it through various torture tests to gauge its resistance. In other words, any Apple Watch model is susceptible to accidental damage, and Apple already knows what it will and won’t cover under the standard and extended warranty programs. More →

The only place in the world to buy an Apple Watch right now

Buyers eager to get their hands on an Apple Watch today who haven’t been able to secure an April 24th ship date for their preorders had only a few options at their disposal, none of them being Apple retail stores. The smartwatch was available in limited quantities in certain fashion boutiques around the world in Tokyo, London, Paris, Milan, Berlin and Los Angeles. But at the moment, the Apple Watch is available in just one store on the planet. More →

I waited in line all night to buy the Apple Watch I didn’t want from a French clothing store

I waited in line all night to buy the Apple Watch I didn’t want from a French clothing store

By on April 24, 2015 at 9:50 AM.

Paris is a gorgeous city by day or by night, though you’re not likely to focus on its genuine beauty if you’re rushing down a familiar street for reasons that have nothing to do with sightseeing. But that’s what I did last night. Ignoring the dimly lit Opera building and the avoiding the massive Louvre, I headed straight for the iconic French fashion boutique you may have heard of recently in reports covering the Apple Watch release.

Colette is the only place in Paris where you can find the device on Friday. And I did not just fly 1,000 miles to Paris to return home empty-handed. More →

Apple Watch Unboxing

You can’t buy an Apple Watch today, so enjoy this unboxing

You can’t buy an Apple Watch today, so enjoy this unboxing

Apple launch days are like no other company’s releases, and that holds especially true for the Apple Watch. Why? Because when most products are released, consumers can, you know, buy them. That simply isn’t the case with the Apple Watch, which will only be obtained on Friday by a fraction of people who preordered them, and an even smaller number of people willing to wait in line outside a handful of fashion retailers.

The odds are pretty good that despite how much you want an Apple Watch today, you won’t get one. You can, however, enjoy this unboxing while you wait for your own watch to arrive. More →

Video: Three new Apple Watch ads debut for launch day

Happy Apple Watch launch day, Apple fans! As we discussed in the most recent episode of our podcast, the Apple Watch release is unique in a number of ways. Beyond the fact that most people who want a Watch aren’t going to get one today, it’s interesting that hardcore Apple fans are perhaps more excited about today’s launch than even a new iPhone, while typical consumers don’t really seem to care all that much. That should change over time, of course, as Watches begin to proliferate and as Apple kicks its massive marketing and advertising push into high gear.

To start things off, Apple has released three new Apple Watch ads to give the public a taste of what everyone can expect. More →

How to use all of the Apple Watch’s cool new features

The Apple Watch brings with it an entirely new UI that may take a little bit of getting used to, even for seasoned iOS users. Having played with an Apple Watch myself for about 50 minutes at an Apple Store recently, I can attest that navigating through all of the device’s many features isn’t always straightforward and comes with something of a learning curve.
