IFixit Tears Down the Brand New Apple Watch
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
The eight months waiting time since Apple introduced the Apple Watch to the world has been a long wait for some people, but that wait was over yesterday when the Watch officially started to sell. iFixit is well-known for their teardown of Apple products and they’ve of course also taken the Watch in for a close inspection and to find out just exactly what is inside this device.
The teardown is still ongoing while I am writing this piece and it’s being updated in real-time until they’ve taken everything apart that can be taken apart. The watch looks like a solid piece of engineering and the assembly looks great, but then again it has to be perfect if you want to fit this amount of technology and a battery into such a tiny device.
The previously rumoured diagnostics port hidden between the armband and the watch itself was also discovered. iFixit is also taking a closer look at Apples first foray into inductive charging, a thing that many believe will be the future for a lot of mobile devices.
Apple Watch Specifications:
- Pressure-sensitive, flexible, touchscreen AMOLED Retina display
- One model measuring 38 mm (vertically) with 272 x 340 pixels (290 ppi), the other model measuring 42 mm (vertically) with 312 x 390 pixels (302 ppi)
- Custom-designed Apple S1 SiP (System in Package)
- 8 GB onboard storage
- NFC + Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n + Bluetooth 4.0
- Accelerometer + gyroscope + heart rate monitor + microphone + speaker
As previously mentioned, the teardown is still ongoing and you can head over to the official page and stay up to date with the latest findings.
