It turns out that Apple Watch’s stainless steel gets easily scratched.
After Apple had to deal with the whole “bendable” iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus nonsense globally, the tech giant hasn’t experienced any big scandals recently. Up until, of course.
Earlier this April Apple enabled the pre-order option for their latest product Apple Watch. The company started shipping their new smartwatch worldwide on the 24th of April with the promise to satisfy the customer’s needs. Unfortunately, it turned out that the most durable of all three versions of the smartwatch wasn’t as durable as we expected.
Apple Watch has some really cool features, such as fitness tracking and making calls. It can connect with your iPhone and you can basically use your watch as a cell phone substitute, because it runs on iOS and it has some handy functions and apps. Even its starting prices are quite affordable – the Sport edition starts at $349. However, not everything is as good as it sounds.
It turns out that the watch’s stainless steel gets easily scratched. Several Apple Watch users, who have been the proud owners of the 316L stainless steel-coated watch, have noticed that the steel body of the device gets easily scratched by everyday activities. Some users have even shared pictures of the nasty scratches on the web and have complained that it only took a couple of days for Apple Watch’s stainless steel to lose its shine to the unflattering scratches.
If you’re planning on getting an Apple Watch anytime soon or if you already have one and you’re noticing scratches on its stainless steel surface, there’s a way to fix this problem. There are already some videos uploaded on YouTube, which offer DIY tutorials on how to hide the scratches. The easiest way, however, is just to buy some metal polish and cover them with it.
