Win a lawsuit against Apple for the broken screen of your Apple Watch

striped apple watch

It is the case of David against Goliath, but in the modern world. A man has managed to win a lawsuit against Apple in the UK, after the screen on your Apple Watch was damaged shortly after purchase. In his lawsuit, the British Gareth Cross, a resident of Aberystwyth, tells how ten days after he bought his Apple Watch last year he was able to distinguish that his screen was broken. The watch had not been dropped and its surface had not been accidentally knocked.

When Cross went to his nearest Apple store to have his glass replaced, he was surprised to discover that the warranty would not cover this type of damage, so he decided to sue Apple under British consumer protection laws. Cross thought he had a chance of winning this court battle against Apple's legion of lawyers and he did, although he admits that the last months of the trial were "somewhat stressful, having to make several statements about it."

The judicial process lasted six months, but finally the judge ruled in favor of Gareth Cross, who declares himself a fan of Apple. The Californian company has been ordered to pay 429 pounds to cover the price of the watch and will also have to bear all the legal expenses of Cross.

The judge assured that “Apple had broken the contract with its client by denying him the replacement of the watch, when marketed as scratch resistant«.

    Mine was lightning based on good the first 15 days
    It did not fall, no blow or anything strange
    I went to the venius bar and I went the way I had come
    As it was the new watch, I did not even know what it cost to replace the sapphire crystal
    After calling 500 times to sat nothing. (He always claims that the sapphire crystal is scratched and that it is due to misuse)
    In the end I was able to speak with a superior and that he would follow my case personally
    And that they would send the watch to be analyzed to see if it could be a manufacturing defect
    After not receiving any news, I took it, I went to the beach to the pool, I submerged it during the night, until at the end it died, I went to the Venius bar when I saw that it did not revive, they sent it to repair and after 3 days they sent me another.

    This new not a single scratch spotless 6 months.
    I think the other had some defect, why was he scratching himself from looking at him every day more stripes came out
    The photos that I send to Apple that I still have prove it

    To me is that this watch seems to me the biggest scam of Apple, look that I have apple products, but this seems to me a full-blown shit, you will see how the 2 will give a thousand turns to this in benefits.

    I do not know if it is scratched or not, but mine that releases it in January is like the ass. Already in itself it does rather little and if it goes wrong, I won't even tell you. 100% apple poop, not to mention the stone-colored fluoroelastomer sports band that's A BIG MY… .. LIKE A HOUSE. I have barely used it and it already shows signs of wear, my goodness for a watch that cost me € 469 it seems to me an armed robbery. I give you very good advice. DO NOT EVER BUY THIS BIG MY…. A week after having it, you don't know if it is better to leave it on the bedside table charging or whether to put it on ebay to get out of it. Because yes gentlemen, 18 hours nothing, if they call you a few times and if you fiddle a bit, goodbye battery. You have it more time charging than using it. To all this we add that when it wants to, it opens the applications and when you need it most, it does not open them, just turn it off and let's go. This is my experience with the blessed apple watch, as you can see very satisfactory. So everyone who thinks what they want, what I want is to go to the first apple store I catch and throw it at the head of some GENIUS by the nose. Not even my iPhone 3g was so disgustingly bad. And look at that in its day it was also something completely new and hardly had applications, but it is that in the days that we are and with the journey that these people have in the manufacture of smartphones, it is not acceptable that they have made such garbage.
