Apple Watch SE presents overheating problems


The first owners of the cheapest version of Apple’s smartwatch, the Apple Watch SE, in South Korea have encountered problems while using their smartwatches.

Today, at least six confirmed cases of severe Apple Watch SE overheating have been reported. In addition, in some cases, overheating has caused not only damage to the watch’s screen, but also burns on its users’ wrist.

The problem of overheating started to appear a few days after the purchase and the appearance of a yellow spot on the screen already announced the problem. Some users reported overheating while charging the gadget and some were less lucky and the overheating occurred with the Apple Watch SE on their wrist, which actually caused burns.

The information that arrived was that three of the six users who reported the problem have already received a refund from Apple. The problem is very serious and so far it is difficult to assess. The Apple Watch SE may not have got it in South Korea, moreover it seems that only the 40mm version with LTE modem and GPS is being affected by the overheating problem.

It remains to be seen whether more Apple Watch SE units will appear with the same problem, Apple has so far not officially commented on it, but probably internally it must have already started checking the lots of gadget made available to the South Korean market in search of the cause of the problem.

The main highlight of the wearable is the fact that it is twice as fast as the Apple Watch Series 3. Although it is an affordable option, it still comes with most of the existing features in the most expensive model.

The Apple Watch SE comes with a lot of features such as drop detection, compass, altimeter always on, sleep tracking and other common features that we see on other Apple smartwatches.

In addition, the Apple Watch SE makes use of the S5 chipset, also present in the Apple Watch series 5. The chipset is the reason why the product offers performance twice as fast. Speaking of build quality, Watch SE is made of 100% recyclable aluminum. When it comes to design, Watch SE looks a lot like the Apple Watch Series 4.

Apple Watch SE runs watchOS 7, unveiled at WWDC 2020. In addition to Watch SE, Apple is also offering a subscription-based service called Fitness Plus. Through this service, users will be able to participate in virtual classes and training. Apple Watch SE buyers will get three months of free service, which costs $ 9.99 a month.
