We are almost used to the fact that from time to time spontaneous combustion of certain smartphones of different brands occurs (sometimes with a fatal outcome ). However, few people expect such a catch from smart watches, although history knows similar cases . An Apple Watch Series 7 user reached out to 9to5Mac, reporting an entertaining story that ended with the watch blowing up and Apple trying to defuse the situation.

This is how the watch looked on the first day when it suddenly warmed up

One day, the owner discovered that the watch on his wrist suddenly became hot. When he removed them, he found that the back glass of the watch was cracked, and watchOS displayed a warning to turn off due to overheating, although the room was a little over 21 degrees Celsius. Frightened, the user immediately called Apple support, explained the situation and heard the standard phrase about “creating a case for further investigation” and the advice not to touch the watch until the company contacts again.

The next morning, the owner decided to take pictures of the watch to send to Apple, picked it up, but the watch immediately began to make “crackling sounds”, and after a couple of moments smoke poured out of the case. The victim immediately threw the watch out the window onto the lawn, where it exploded. During a follow-up call to Apple Support, he was told that his case had received “highest priority” and would be contacted by the following Monday, but in the end, a response did not follow until Wednesday, October 5th.

Apple arranged for the return shipping of the damaged watch, announcing its intention to study it in its labs to determine the cause. Apple also demanded that the victim sign a document stating that he would not share this story with anyone. However, as you probably guessed, he refused to sign it, after which he immediately turned to 9to5Mac.
