This is bonkers!
One surfer lost his Apple Watch out at sea – only for it to reappear ashore six months later.
Robert Bainter, a body surfer from California used his Apple smartwatch to monitor and track his activities on the waves.
However about six months ago, he surfed a massive wave and afterwards, discovered the watch had fallen into the water. Ouch.
He used Apple’s ‘Find My Watch’ feature but to no avail and eventually just bought a replacement watch.
However, now the watch has turned up three miles from when it was lost six months ago.
“I don’t know, I just had this feeling I was going to get it back,” Bainter told US news channel KLTA.
But the best part?
It’s in perfect working order!
He turned the watch on Lost Mode and six months later, received a call from an unknown number. The man on the other end of the phone asked him to describe an Apple Watch he may have lost ‘recently’.
It turns out the watch had moved three miles up the coast and was picked up by someone looking for shells.
Puts a brand new spin on the term ‘smart watch’!
