Refurbished Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE 2 Models Now Available From Apple
Apple today added refurbished Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE 2 models to its online store in the United States, offering the latest Apple Watches at a discounted price for the first time.
The Apple Watch Series 8 is available starting at $339 for the 41mm GPS model, which is $60 off of the original price. The 45mm GPS model is priced at $359, a $70 discount off of the original price, and the total available discount goes up to $80 for the highest-end 45mm option.
The Apple Watch SE is available starting at $209 for the 40mm GPS model and $239 for the 44mm GPS model, with slightly higher prices for cellular connectivity.
Apple has a range of discounted Apple Watch Series 8 and SE 2 models for sale, in both GPS only and GPS + Cellular configurations. At the current time, Apple is only offering the aluminum Apple Watch Series 8 models, and there is no sign of a refurbished Apple Watch Ultra.
The Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE 2 models initially came out in September 2022, alongside the iPhone 14 models and the Apple Watch Ultra.
As with all refurbished products, available stock will fluctuate over time as Apple refreshes what is available, so you may need to check back often if you’re looking for a specific color or size.
According to Apple, all refurbished Apple Watch models go through a rigorous refurbishment process prior to being offered for sale. Refurbishment includes testing, replacement for any defective parts, inspections, cleaning, and repackaging.
All refurbished products are covered by the same one-year warranty that is applicable to new products, with the warranty able to be extended with AppleCare+.
