    Apple Watch Ultra has been the talk of the town since its launch. During the iPhone 14 series launch event, Apple unveiled three new smartwatches: Apple Watch Series 8, an affordable Apple Watch SE second gen, and the most rugged version of the Apple Watch ever called the Apple Watch Ultra. This Apple Watch Ultra is touted to be so strong that it can handle the harshest conditions that athletes go through including hiking, swimming, running and everything else. But now, a popular YouTube channel, TechRax has uploaded a video about an Apple Watch Ultra durability test. And guess what? The Apple Watch Ultra survived a few hammer blows!

    The 4 minutes and 34 seconds video posted by the YouTuber was titled - "Apple Watch Ultra Hammer Durability and Drop Test - Will it Survive?" It starts with a drop test of the Apple Watch Ultra from around four feet from the ground and it left minor dents on the casing, while the Watch was mostly undamaged. Later, the YouTuber put the Apple Watch Ultra inside a jar of nails and shakes it to check the durability. Again, Apple Watch Ultra handled all without any marks.

    And later, the biggest test of them all came in the form of a hammer to check the Apple Watch Ultra's sapphire crystal display durability. Video showed that the watch stands strong against multiple hits, and surprisingly, the table started cracking before the Apple Watch Ultra! However, after a few hits, the Apple Watch Ultra did finally crack. And the video showed that the smartwatch stopped responding.

    However, the video does give you a rough idea of how strong the Apple Watch Ultra sapphire crystal display is.

    In case this crazy test got you all worked up and hankering to buy the the new Apple Watch Ultra, then know that it has been launched at a starting price of $799.

    It packs a dual-frequency GPS that integrates both L1 and the latest frequency, L5. Also, Apple mentioned that its battery life can be extended to reach up to 60 hours using Low Power Mode.
