You might not be able to buy an Apple Watch in Apple retail stores until June and the device you preordered may not arrive for many more weeks to come. But at least you can now check out a virtual teardown of the device, even before the gadget is available to early buyers.
Designer Martin Hajek, who has created amazing renders of unreleased Apple products in the past, created a “detailed 3D model of the inner components of the Apple Watch.” The renders might not be able to provide the same level of detail that you can expect from actual teardowns that will undoubtedly come from iFixit and Chipworks, but they still provide an interesting view of the Apple Watch’s innards.
Hajek’s renders are based on the various videos Apple published in which the company shows how the aluminum (Apple Watch Sport), steel (Apple Watch) and gold (Apple Watch Edition) models are made.
As you can see in some of the images below, the level of detail is still quite impressive and it explains why Apple might indeed have production issues with the Watch.
You can check the Watch’s tiny components, including the powerful S1 chip and tiny battery, in the images below, with more of them available at the source link.
