    Getting AppleCare+ for your shiny new Apple Watch Edition will reportedly cost you $999.

    As we previously reported, the Apple Watch Edition will come with an extra level of care already, with a two-year warranty and two years of free technical support.

    If one can drop the retail price of an Edition - another $1k for AppleCare is a rounding error...

    Sounds in line or even cheaper than for the iPhone . My iPhone 6 Plus with cellular and 128GB was near $1,000 so $100 for the Apple Care + is 10%.
    It all depends on how much you spent for the iPhone or Apple Watch.

    Interesting. Considering the Edition will come with 55 grams of gold, that leaves approximately $8400ish left over in margin after mfging. So say $5000 margin after marketing, and service.
    Seems $1,000 to cover approximately $1700-$1800 of hardware is not too bad for Apple.
    (Considering they're paying top dollar for the gold, and spending about $200-$300 for the rest of the hardware).

    I wonder what the deductible will be like. $799?

    Edit: Whoops. Seems Apple may be using a 18k composite. Gold content may be as low as $600-$700. What the?
