Apple Offering Refurbished Series 1 and Series 2 Apple Watch Models

Apple today updated its online store for refurbished products, introducing refurbished Apple Watch models for the first time since the Apple Watch was released in the spring of 2015.

The Apple Watch refurbished section includes both Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2 models at 14 to 16 percent off depending on configuration. No original Apple Watch models are included.

Both aluminum and stainless steel Apple Watch models are included, in 38 and 42mm size options. All Apple Watches listed in the store feature Sport bands in a variety of colors.

Aluminum Apple Watch models start at $229 for the 38mm version ($40 off), while 38mm stainless steel Apple Watch models start at $469 ($80 off).

Refurbished stock varies on a day-by-day basis according to the models that Apple has on hand, and supplies can potentially go quickly. Refurbished stock is refreshed on a regular basis, however.

All of Apple's refurbished Apple Watch models include magnetic charging cables and a full one-year warranty, just like non-refurbished products. Series 2 models ship with a power adapter, while Series 1 models do not.

I feel like Apple always overprices their refurbished products. If all you are saving is $40-80 just buy new or if needed save a little longer so you can buy new. These should be selling for another $30 cheaper at entry pricing.

With all of the problems there have been with fake and dangerous power adapters out there, you'd think apple could spare a few bucks to include a power adapter :-/

"Apple" and "Spare a few bucks" in the same sentence, that's rich! Literally! :D

I agree. Refurbished needs to be in the 20-25% off range.
