Apple is Now Selling Refurbished Apple Watch Series 3 Units in Online Store

Apple has officially updated the refurbished section of its online store, adding the 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch Series 3 into the mix.

The options are limited, to say the least, at the time of publication. In both variants, only the Space Gray and Gold Aluminum are available to buy. Apple has each color listed in each specific size, but if you want a Space Gray in 38mm, you just need to click through the Space Gray 42mm option, then, on the next screen, select the specific size you want. You can do the same for the Gold Aluminum option, if you want the 42mm option.

Apple is offering 13% off the 42mm variant, priced at $309.00 as a refurbished unit, which is a savings of $50. Meanwhile, you’ll save 15% off the 38mm Apple Watch Series 3, which is priced at $279.00. That is also a savings of $50.

There are no Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE variants being offered just yet.

Here is how Apple describes their refurbished devices:

“We test and certify all Apple refurbished products and include a 1-year warranty.
All refurbished Watch models include a Magnetic Charging Cable and a new white box.
Supply is limited and availability is guaranteed once we receive your full payment.”

Our Take

The refurbished storefront is a quick and easy way to pick up a slightly used device, but which has gone through Apple’s own testing procedures to make it a worthwhile device. Plus, saving a few bucks up front is always nice, too.

Do you think you’ll pick up a refurbished Apple Watch Series 3, or will you wait for the LTE variants to get added to the mix?
