An Apple Watch user explained that he was wearing the watch when he suddenly noticed that it was getting much hotter than usual. He then discovered that the back of the Apple Watch was cracked and watchOS was showing a warning to turn it off due to overheating.

The Apple Watch Series 7 began shipping in October 2021.

After this incident, the man immediately called Apple support to explain the situation. The call went through several levels of Apple's support hierarchy and eventually ended up in the hands of a manager who created a case for further investigation. After this call, there was no decision or advice - only instructions not to touch the watch until he received a response from the company.

However, the next morning the situation escalated even more. The man woke up to find that the Apple Watch was even hotter to the touch, and the device's display was cracked.

When he picked up the Apple Watch to take pictures to send to Apple, it immediately started making "crackling sounds". They then "exploded" when he opened the window to throw them out. The watch left burn marks on the couch. As a result, the man went to the emergency room because of possible lead poisoning. But the Apple Watch doesn't actually contain enough lead to cause poisoning. He was just worried about it.
