What are the stipulations of the refurbished status?
If there is something wrong with the watches components ie. HR tracking, etc what recourse does one have?
Also, can these refurbs have apple care attached to them?
Soooo tempting but I must wait for the 2nd generation Watch!
Hover your mouse over “refurbished” and a box will pop up with a definition.
You’d need to check with Apple on the Apple Care plan. The watch comes with a 90 Day Woot warranty, and the option to purchase an extended Square Trade warranty.
Last time this was on Woot, there was discussion of refurbs showing up in lockdown mode (i.e. reported stolen or locked via iCloud) and unable to be used. If I order one, and it shows up like this, what are my options? Presumably Woot will refund my money?
If it wan’t refurbed by Apple, no Apple Care for you. If it was refurbed by Apple, it would have a one-year Apple Care warranty, and this does not.
Target and Best Buy often run sales on these for $249-299 brand new. Keep your eyes open for their sales circulars.
Buy one now so the government can hack it later.
Yes, woot will refund you. I asked the same question last time. I purchased one and it was not locked out, however, Best Buy and Target both put them on sale new for $299. Slightly dissapointed.
The Apple Watch has been extremely convenient, but if you’re picky over little things like I me I don’t recommend the space gray aluminum watch. The coating of mine has started to wear off right where it meets the screen and the aluminum color sticks out.
Serious question. What does this watch do that really justifies spending $200 - $300 on ?? Is more of a tech junkie just got to have it because it’s apple type thing or more to it.
Bummer! Space Gray is the only conservative color of the bunch. I’m not a white band (or lavender or rose) person. Making a good hard, long lasting anodized surface is not rocket science. (Well, maybe the space program did have a role in advancing andonizing).
Other possibility is that you got a knock off. Metal finishing by a couple guys in a garage in Shanghai can get a little tricky.
Value is in the eye of the beholder with most tech items. We need some reviews from owners here on how useful these apple watches are. From what I gather, you still need a phone on you, so they don’t lighten the load.
Great question, I was wondering the same thing…but since I am a techie, (who loves watches) I had to try it to find out.
It really depends on what apps you set up. I often don’t carry my phone with me around the house, so I can answer a call, a text, or know the temperature wherever I am. My son and I send heartbeats to one another every day (I’m fighting a serious illness, and he’s recovering from an accident), and it has been a great comfort to both of us.
It prompts me to move when I’ve been sitting too long, tracks and logs my pulse, is very handy with directions (even subways), is extremely accurate, let’s me know if my flight is on time, and helps me accomplish six pre-set goals every day.
Since I got it, I haven’t worn any other watch.
I owned one for about 8 months and then sold it. It’s “cool” and “fun” but the functionality didn’t really do anything for me. It’s two main purposes for me were to give you a buzz on your wrist every time a text comes in and seeing the time. Responding to messages on the watch isn’t really that practical, the automated responses often weren’t great and the emoji’s were weird. I couldn’t justify the $400 price, maybe for $250 I would have kept it but I wanted to sell it before it lost all it’s value and see what the 2nd generation watch would have to offer.
I bought one three weeks ago and returned it after 6 days. It is cool, but it is a tech junkie thing. Basically, it’s notifications center on your wrist in smaller form with a Heart Rate monitor. I can see it being useful if you’re the type of person who doesn’t have your phone with you all the time (but you’ve still got to have it close or the notifications won’t come through), and need to be kept to a schedule and/or reminded to exercise.
Of course, these are just my opinions and certainly there are those who find it very useful, but for me I don’t feel it’s worth more than $100-150 in its current form. I look forward to seeing where it goes though.
Bought the wife one for christmas. She loves it.
She recommends it highly.
Thanks, Apple Employee.
Does anyone know if this comes in the original Apple packages (plastic sealed and all…)?
