When the watches are purchased, either from online or an Apple store, customers can choose whether or not they would like to pay extra for the guarantee.Included will be cover against accidental damage and an extra year of coverage. Those who purchase the Apple Watch Edition will get an extra two years, extending the coverage to three years.

For those who don’t know much about AppleCare+, it is a service which is offered for various Apple products when purchased. Buying this add-on for the iPhone, for example, will extend the warranty by an extra year and cover against accidental damage.Almost all Apple devices are covered for one year by the standard warranty, and all hardware repairs will be covered.
