How much money do I get for trading my old Apple Watch?

These are the devices and their corresponding estimated trade-in values ​​listed on the Apple website:

  • Apple Watch SE: Up to $ 155
  • Apple Watch Series 5: Up to $ 145
  • Apple Watch Series 4: Up to $ 100
  • Apple Watch Series 3: Up to $ 70

Note that there are some caveats associated with these numbers. The credit amount is based on the information you have put on your watch, including its condition. If something does not match when Apple receives the trade-in, the estimate will be adjusted. In addition, the estimates given online may not be what you get in store.

The type of loan also depends on what you’re buying and how you’re paying for it, according to Apple.

When you buy an Apple Watch and pay for it in full, Apple credits your original payment method for the total purchase price. The remaining amount will be deposited into an Apple Gift Card by email.

Can I trade in my Apple Watch elsewhere?

Yes sir. Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint all offer trade-in programs for Apple Watches and other devices. There are other sites like Swappa, eBay, Trademore, and BuyBackWorld as well. Since these are third party websites, we recommend reading their Trustpilot reviews before making a decision.
