Out-of-warranty service

Service is considered out of warranty and comes with a fee when:

  • Your Apple Watch is beyond the eligible warranty term.
  • Your Apple Watch has an issue that’s not covered under warranty or consumer law, such as accidental damage..
  • Your Apple Watch service isn’t covered by an AppleCare plan.

We might be able to fix or replace your Apple Watch for an out-of-warranty fee. In some cases, you might need to pay the full replacement value fee, such as for catastrophic damage or unauthorized modifications.

Your replacement Apple Watch will have factory settings and will be new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability.
