Although it has many wireless functions, the Apple Watch is mainly used with fingers, whether it is touch screen or side buttons. As if this is not enough, we wear a watch every hour, and it is inevitable that it eventually becomes dirty.
Apple recommends that we clean our branded products from time to time, and that includes the Apple Watch. But now it is more important than ever to prevent coronavirus spread.
You probably won't share your watch with others (meaning the risk of a person touching it is low), but it's still a potential disease. A good way not to spread the virus is through the viral screening process.
In this article, we explain the steps you should follow to clean and disinfect your Apple Watch. As you will see, it is important that we clean all of its corners first, including thread and Digital, and then continue to use viruses.
How to clean the Apple Watch
As we said, Apple says we should keep the Apple Watch clean, no matter what. It is also important to keep it dry. But in all of this you have to use the right products.
In this sense, Apple's official recommendation is not to use soap, cleaning products, materials (paint or paint), compressed air, ultrasonic cleaning or external heat sources. All of this can damage the clock.
To clean the Apple Watch, you must turn it off first, to make sure it is not charged yet remove the strings in case of skin. After that, continue to clean all parts of the clock with a non-biased (and non-biased) cloth.
If necessary, you can also slowly soak the cloth with tap water, or soak it in a gentle stream of warm water for 10 to 15 seconds. Don't worry because the Apple Watch is resistant to spraying.
Finally, it is important that you spend enough time to dry it properly. You should also use a lightweight, odorless cloth. Don't forget which side of the Apple Watch. Don't forget to dry the screen and glass back properly.
In addition to preventing injury and preventing the spread of infections, one of the main reasons to take your clock cleanse is that it will help prevent skin irritation (especially for people with sensitive or allergic skin).
How to wash the Digital Crown of the Apple Watch
After regular Apple Watch cleanup, you should stop to clean its buttons properly. The procedure outlined below is very important when the Digital Crown is not moving and you suspect that there is a pollution that is stopping you.
If you haven't done that already, turn off the clock, unplug it and remove the thread (especially if it's leather). Do not use soap or other cleaning products. Just place the Digital Crown under the warm water for 10 to 15 seconds.
The water cord must fit into the narrow gap between the crown and the clock position. Turn around and press the Digital Crown often to make dirt away. Finally, dry all the corners of the device properly with a non-slip, sticky cloth.

There are many offers for apple-watching strips. There are all kinds and of all shapes. But if there is something in common, it must be purified often, because it is one of the clock's most striking elements.
It is important that we look at the cleaning instructions of each belt manufacturer, but Apple recommends their procedure that is easily applied to anyone. The first thing you should do is remove it from the clock.

After the cleansing process comes the process of disinfecting. This is especially recommended in situations like the one we currently face, where the risk of spreading the virus is high.
There are many questions as to whether the disinfectant can be used with the Apple Watch. Apple answered yes, but you have to be careful. In this sense, they should not be used with cloth belts or leather belts.
For the rest, you can use disinfecting or wiping with 70% isopropyl alcohol to remove the Apple Watch case and girdle (plastic or metal). Above all, do not use bleach and prevent moisture from entering the clock holes.
