A recent incident in which the battery of the smart watch exploded has returned to establish a new panic. The incident took place in China, when a four-year-old girl suffered a third-degree burn when her smartwatch exploded on her wrist.

The girl was taken to hospital, where she had to have a skin graft after the incident. The victim has been identified as Yiyi Huang from Quanzhou city in China’s Fujian province. According to Yahoo News Australia, the incident occurred earlier this month when Yee was playing with her younger cousin.

We have seen this type of incident in the past with many other devices. However, smartwatches haven’t really been a part of this list until now. As in this case based on several previous incidents, it is possible that the smartwatch battery exploded in a significant physical impact, an external force could damage the battery to the point of exploding. Of course, one can argue how a four-year-old was able to generate so much power, and why the smartwatch couldn’t handle it.
