How resistant is the glass of the Apple Watch?

Apple Watch is pre-orderable in some countries of the world like Canada, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, China and Japan, with Italy forced to wait for the second launch tranche the Apple smartwatch.

The glass of the sapphire Apple Watch in the gold Edition version while of the Ion-X for the Sport version; sapphire is a very hard and therefore resistant material, difficult to chip while Apple describes the Ion-X in this way:

Ion-X glass is the same material used for the windows of space shuttles and high-speed trains. thin and light, but surprisingly robust: five times stronger than ordinary glass. These are all qualities that make it perfect for Apple Watch Sport models. There are various ways to make the crystals more resistant on the surface, but the Ion-X glass reinforced deeper, at the molecular level. During the manufacturing process, it is immersed in a 400 C potassium nitrate bath and ion exchange occurs at this stage: the smaller sodium ions are replaced by the larger potassium ions; during cooling the latter create an extremely hard surface layer, resistant to scratches and impacts.

The iPhonefixed guys have therefore tested the resistance of this glass with various tests that you can see in the following video:
