To make sure the Apple Watch is suitable for your skin, Apple works closely with toxicologists and dermatologists.

Once your Apple Product’s life has come to an end, Apple offers you their Recover program. You can send your device to them, and it’ll be recycled free of charge. It’s a win for you and for the planet. Also, if your product still holds value, Apple will pay you for it. California has some strict requirements when it comes to energy efficiency, and the Apple Watch meets them all.

Apple does their best to make sure that the product you wear on your wrist is as safe, long-lasting, and energy-efficient as possible.
