Default Apple Watch taken apart

ABI Research has taken apart an Apple Watch but said it was a difficult job.

The firm said the design is based on a custom Apple microprocessor – the APL 0778 – but also includes components from Broadcom, NXP, AMS, IDT, Elpida, Sanddisk and some ADI capacitive components.

Jim Mielke, VP of engineering at ABI, said the design is very different from Apple smartphones and includes chips that you just wouldn’t find in an ordinary watch.

“Judging by the complexity of the printed circuit board (PCB) and the number of parts on the PCB, one might think the Apple watch is a full fledged cellular connected watch but in fact connectivity is limited to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC,” he said.

The touch controllers from ADI and that’s a change for the company which hasn’t been very active in wins for mobile devices over the last three to five years, he added.

ABI has published a photograph which shows the PCB of an Apple Watch.
