Purchasing an Apple Watch is just like a buying a mechanical watch in Malaysia. It’s quite a
thorough process, but once you get hold of your beloved timepiece, learn how to care for it, and
enjoy your it. However, take note that Apple watches are not invincible. They are durable and
long lasting, but not invincible.
Give it the utmost watch care, just like the care, love and attention you are giving to your
mechanical watch. So, what if it gets water-damaged, smashed or cracked? Don’t worry, there is
still hope to have it replaced or repaired.
Screen damage is the most common issue here. Others complain about the back plate coming off,
or about poor battery life. If you are encountering a worse issues, like physically damaged parts,
then maybe it’s time to ask the help of a professional. Some owners, though, just decide to buy a

But, you must never use it for waterskiing, scuba diving or other sports activities that involve
high-velocity water submersion. While Apple doesn’t recommend people to submerge their
gadgets in water, several owners have discovered that to some extent, they are water resistant.
If you think that this something seriously wrong with your Apple Watch, this can be covered by
the Apple warranty. Apple will most likely replace it, as long as the owner can prove that it is not
tampered. Expect your timepiece to be covered by a warranty for a single year.
