Get ready for Apple Watch service

Many Apple Watch issues can be resolved by restarting the device. You can also unpair your Apple Watch from your iPhone and then pair it again. Learn how to resolve charging issues

If you need service, be sure to:

  • Charge your Apple Watch
  • Unpair your Watch from your iPhone
  • Remove your band and keep it along with your charging cable and other accessories. You’ll need these after your Apple Watch service and they cannot be returned.
  • Make sure you know your Apple ID and password
  • If you have an Apple Watch Edition, remove the loose parts from your Apple Watch Edition Magnetic Charging Case and keep them before you return your Apple Watch for service.

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. 

Replacement equipment that Apple provides as part of the repair or replacement service may contain new or previously used Apple genuine parts that have been tested and pass Apple functional requirements.

Battery service

If your Apple Watch has a battery, power, or charging issue that’s covered by the Apple Limited Warranty, AppleCare+, or consumer law, we can service your device at no additional cost. If it experiences issues that aren’t covered, or if your battery has worn down from normal use, we can service your device for a fee.
