However, Apple emphasized on the structural durability of the new smartwatch by revealing that it has a titanium case and flat display glass with sapphire crystal coating, which is for rigidity and scratch resistance.

Even the best brands have to undergo scrutiny from tech experts or even common users with an affinity for gadgets, both of whom expect nothing less than perfection, especially from a tech giant like Apple.

Therefore, popular YouTuber, TechRax, decided to conduct a hammer test on Apple Watch Ultra so as to check whether the company’s claims on their newly launched device was true or not.

TechRax tested the device in a procedural way by conducting 2 different tests out of which the first was by dropping the watch from a 4m height, which did it no harm as there were no visible dents or marks on the casing or sapphire crystal glass.

Next, he placed the smartwatch in a box of nails and thumb tacks, following which he shook it vigorously. Upon opening, he found that the watch had no scratches and was completely unharmed.
