The Apple Watch is out the door, its display is impressive and seems to hold a terrific resolution, even given its tiny screen.

The display itself features a Flexible OLED covered by either a sapphire crystal or Ion-X strengthened cover glass on the Sport model. This being Apple’s first OLED display, Dr. Raymond Soneira over at DisplayMate went bananas, testing its performance, power management, color management, color gamut, color accuracy, ambient light sensor, reflectance, viewing angles and other aspects of the wearable.

It’s not exactly light reading, but it’s as thorough as anything you’ll find out there. The report has great things to say about the Apple Watch display, calling it a “very good side-by-side match to the iPhone 6.”

The major issues for Apple to tackle is are limited display brightness, the performance in high ambient light, display power management and the running time on battery. Even so, the display came through with flying colors and the full, extremely detailed DisplayMate report is linked below.

As always, let us know what’s on your mind in the comments and if you’ve gotten your paws on a new Apple Watch, please let us know what you think of the display.
