It's Friday April 24th in at least some parts of the world, which means there are regular civilians out there with Apple Watches of their own. And, true to form, the noted gadget dissectors at iFixit are tearing theirs apart as quickly as possible to find out what's inside.

The site hasn't finished its teardown yet, but is updating as they go; right now the Taptic Engine is out, as are the gaskets helping give the Watch its water-resistance rating of IPX7. You can check iFixit's progress in the module above (and compare it to the original Pebble watch below for contrast), or visit the site itself for gory high-res photos of the Apple Watch's insides.
