Scratch that: Apple Watch sapphire screen can take a beating

The iPhone 6, before it launched, was expected to feature an ultra-durable sapphire screen. So everyone wanted to get their hands on the material and put it through the ringer, to see how it would hold up in both every-day and not-so-every-day usage.

Well the Apple Watch, set to launch later this month, actually does have a sapphire screen, so naturally people are going to want to put it to the test too. In fact, the folks over at iPhonefixed already have, and they’ve uploaded a video of the torture session.

Unfortunately, restrictions on the video are preventing us from embedding it in this post, but you can check it out here. Spoiler alert, the screen is pretty impressive, withstanding key swipes, a hammer and a power drill without incurring any noticeable scratches.

The Apple Watch goes up for pre-order tomorrow at 12:01am Pacific Time. If you plan on getting one, be sure to check out our post on how to be best prepared for when pre-orders go live.
