Apple Watch Sport Drop Tested, Ion-X Glass Fails Swift Durability Torture  

If you had any doubts about the Sport version of the Apple Watch, which features Apple's molecular strengthened Ion-X glass said to be scratch and impact-resistant, your worst fear of potential glass shattering is about to become real. The only time when you can drop your Apple Watch is when you're fumbling around trying to get the strap to securely fasten around your wrist, which can of course mean that the chances of it slipping right off during that time are high. To find out what will happen to the glass display of a 42mm Apple Watch Sport, YouTube channel TechRax decided to put one through a reasonable drop test from the same height you yourself would most likely be putting around your wrist. After the first drop of it landing on its composite-made back unscathed, the Apple Watch Sport failed miserably when it was dropped facing down, ending with a totally shattered glass display. Though it seemed the watch did remain functional after having suffered a glass shattering impact.

Griffin's WatchStand Is The Highest Apple Watch Charging Stand

Griffin's new versatile WatchStand for the Apple Watch is the first charging dock to also feature a dedicated bottom stand to horizontally place your iPhone during the night. And because of that, it's also the largest Apple Watch charging accessory we've seen yet. The WatchStand's tall charging post neatly conceals the magnetic charger and USB cable in its core for a clean look. Like Twelve South's HiRise, the WatchStand will charge any model of the Apple Watch whilst displaying the smartwatch at the perfect elevated viewing angle – both vertically or horizontally. But unlike the more premium designed HiRise, Griffin's WatchStand is made out of plastic. Though it is a cheaper charging accessory at just $30. Griffin's WatchStand will be available for purchase this summer.

WatchStand displays Apple Watch on a sleek pedestal, and can be placed on any nightstand, tabletop or desktop for convenient daily charging. WatchStand houses the Apple-provided MagSafe charging cable in an angled cradle that keeps it ready to charge at all times. For initial assembly, the user simply feeds the MagSafe cable through the center of the post, and then, to charge each day, lays the Apple Watch against the cradle. The MagSafe connector's magnet gently snaps itself onto the back of the watch and begins charging.
