The glass may be scratch-proof, but the Apple Watch is not durable enough to withstand a blender.

Tom Dickson wasted no time having the Apple Watch as a guest on his YouTube show, Will It Blend?Sure enough, it didn’t.

Dickson – maybe all too cheerfully – placed the watch in one of his Blendtec blenders and gave it a whirl. It seemed to take the beating from the initial revolutions of the blade before pieces began flying off the watch. The session ended with black smoke and a pile of what looked like ashes.

Dickson – who posted the video to his channel Monday just a couple of days after buyers began receiver their watches – has put just about every Apple product that fits in his blenders. YouTube is populated with a range of people with a sick fascination for destroying technology. It’s only a matter of time before self-described tech assassin Richard Ryan of FullMag sends a 50-caliber shell through an Apple Watch.

Dickson tried to put his guest at ease with a little friendly banter. SIRI knew what was in store and described Dickson’s record for blending Apple products as both “inspiring and disturbing.”

“It’s a work of art. It should be on your wrist not in a Blendtec.”

Of course, Dickson could not be persuaded from the usual wide-eyed curiosity that he puts into every one of his shows.

There was a glint in his eye when he ended the session talking about the possibility of Apple making a self-driving car.

“I can deal with that,” he said.
