    Hi All,
    I’m planning to buy a near mint condition Apple Watch, series 3 from an associate soon. The watch was purchased new seven months back and I plan to purchase AppleCare plus just as soon as I take ownership of the device. Has anyone purchased a used Apple Watch and AppleCare plus? What was your experience?

    You'll enjoy the Apple Watch, and I know @Tartarus has purchased one 2nd hand before. Only issue I see is your ability to buy Apple Care may not be there as it needs to be purchased within 60 days of purchase, and I don't believe that includes person to person.

    Yes, I did buy a second hand first gen, because I didn’t know if I’d like it or not.
    I have to say it was money well spent and I got a series 3 last January. There is night and day difference between the first gen and series 3. Better battery life, faster and my love for the Watch has grown exponentially.

    If the person you’re buying the Watch from has AppleCare+ on the watch, it will automatically transfer to you because it is device specific.
