In case you were wondering about how robust the Apple Watch might be with its metal casing and sapphire glass, Sharon Profis from CNet in the UK put her Apple Watch to the test.

After putting it under running water, dunking it in water for ten minutes and running it over a cheese grater, pouring red wine, soy sauce, mustard, ketchup, maple syrup, Nutella and peanut butter and then rinsing it off – it was still fine.

It was then dropped into boiling water. It restarted and displayed a high temperature warning – but it still worked once the Apple Watch cooled down.

A number drop tests were run and it was finally hit with a 7-pound ( kg) cast iron pan to break the screen.
