Demand for the Apple Watch Ultra is the most optimistic Apple expected. The watch is bought not only by those who practice extreme sports, but also by users who are looking for a larger and more resistant watch with more battery.
And of course, this is reflected in the tests that some people submit the Apple Watch to: there are videos in which the new watch is put in pressurized water chambers or even receives hammer blows. The result? The table breaks before the clock itself
A clean slap with the Apple Watch Ultra
TechRax posted a video on its YouTube channel in which it literally hammers the Apple Watch Ultra. Naturally, he manages to break it, but not before verifying that the watch withstands many blows and even ends up breaking in front of the test table.
It seems that the first thing that breaks is the screen and the rear sensors, with the titanium structure of the case enduring all the blows. Be careful with the video, as it may offend those still looking for one of those Apple Watch Ultras.
Another video, this time from DC Rainmaker, shows how well the Apple Watch Ultra’s sensors interpret the simulated depth in a water chamber to which more or less pressure can be applied. The higher the pressure, the deeper the depth is simulated.
Apple Watch Ultra measures depth up to almost 40 meters (about 30 feet) before simply noting “beyond 130 feet”. The measurements are completely faithful to what the water tank simulates.
We have limits, but they are difficult to overcome. Those responsible for reviewing one of these Apple Watch Ultras have a lot of work ahead of them, because simply getting the watch wet or throwing it in a pool won’t be enough. It is a device for extreme situations, so you have to reproduce extreme situations.
