A man has reported his Apple Watch Series 7 battery causing a meltdown and eventually ‘exploding’.

The man called Apple, who had a manager create a case for him. He was told not to touch the Apple Watch until the manager got back to him. In the morning, the man woke up to see his Apple Watch expanding and making ‘crackling noises’. He then threw it out the window and claimed that it had exploded.

Apple contacted the Apple Watch owner to pick up the watch for further testing. It wasn’t clear if the man experienced any injuries, but he said that he went to the hospital to check for lead poisoning.
