Blendtec and Tom Dickson have returned with the latest edition of their "Will It Blend" experiment, this time putting the Apple Watch in a blender to see how well it survives. Spoiler alert: it doesn't. Just like with every iPhone put through the blender treatment, the Apple Watch is quickly smashed and destroyed into tiny bits and pieces of metal.


Last week, the Apple Watch Sport was put through a lengthier torture test that involved attempting to scratch it with a cheese grater, pouring ketchup and maple syrup on it, boiling it in hot water, stepping on it, smashing it with a seven-pound cast iron skillet and more. The wrist-worn device also underwent a waterproof test on the same day.


Don't try this at home.

I think this was one of the better ones. They showed the whole thing being destroyed with some great slo-mo. Also one of the funnier does with the car. Keep it up Blendtec!

I read that the Apple Watch Edition would be blend-proof. Can't wait until blendtec proves me wrong.

This was my thought exactly. Does Blendtec really make sales to support destroying both a $300 watch and a $300 blender? Does anyone really buy these blenders because of these videos?

Kinda funny videos I guess, but I bought a Vitamix. Ha, lets see of vitamix can blend the blendtec better than blendtec can belnd a vitamix. That is a video I would really like to see.

When they first released these videos they were everywhere, and that must have been an amazing marketing boost for them reaching millions of people. I probably would never know what Blendtec was had it not been for these videos. Their YouTube page has 786,000+ subscriptions which is crazy for how little effort the videos must take to make.

They are actually really good blenders. I don't know if they're any better than the Vitamix though.

I don't understand. Why would you do this? Because you can?
Cheap, wide reaching, marketing. Exposure similar to what these videos have brought them would cost a whole lot of money.

I think blendtec had a video where they blended stones... it's really a battle between blendtec/vitamix and optimum 9400, they seem to be good tool to destroy evidence with :)

I'd love to see an Apple Car in a blender!
