TechRax is a YouTuber with a penchant for destroying expensive gadgets, particularly ones with an Apple logo. We last heard from him when he smashed a normal Apple Watch Sport. Now he’s taken it up a gear.

In the video above, he appears to crush a $10,000 Apple Watch Edition in a pair of neodymium magnets. That the device ends up ruined after suffering 600 pounds of force isn’t surprising, but it still seems to charge.

While TechRax makes his money from racking up YouTube views, it’s likely the US-based Ukrainian vlogger will swallow a loss on this particular clip.
