why you should sell your apple watch online

Why Should I Sell My Apple Watch Online?

There are various reasons to consider selling your old Apple Watch, like the three listed below.

1. Give Your Watch a New Life

There's no point in holding on to an item you never use, especially when another Apple user out there could give it a brand-new life. Anyone looking for a fitness assistant that also performs the functions of an iPhone — all at a decent price — would happily purchase a refurbished Apple Watch. Extend the life span and usefulness of your old watch by selling it to a new user.

2. Earn Some Extra Cash

Whether or not you plan to upgrade your device, selling your Apple Watch is a great way to make some extra dough. Even if your Apple Watch is a slightly older model, you may still be able to get a decent offer for it. 

Because Apple creates such dependable devices, these quality watches continue to sell well. You can get several years out of Apple products with proper care, so buyers are always looking for older models at affordable prices.

3. Get a New Device

Even if your current Apple Watch holds up pretty well, you may be drawn to the improved specs and features found in newer models. Maybe you're steering away from an Apple Watch altogether and would rather invest in a different device. Whatever the case, selling your old Apple Watch is a great way to earn money for a newer, faster product.

What to Do Before Selling Your Apple Watch

When you sell used Apple devices to a reliable company like Mac Me an Offer, we'll clear any remaining data to ensure there's no trace of your personal information. But we still recommend the following steps before you sell a used Apple Watch online. Erasing data and cleaning are standard precautions to take before selling any electronic device.

1. Turn off the Activation Lock

Turning off the Activation Lock on your Apple Watch is an important first step. It removes all personal information from your device including music, apps, contacts, photos and other services. Your content will still be accessible on iCloud and your other current Apple devices after you unpair your watch. Follow the steps below to turn off the lock:

  1. Hold your iPhone and Apple Watch close together.
  2. Go to the Apple Watch app on your phone, then select “My Watch.”
  3. Select “All Watches” at the top of the page, then tap the information button (i) beside your watch's name.
  4. Click “Unpair Apple Watch." If you have a cellular Apple Watch model, you'll need to select “Remove Cellular Plan” as well.
  5. Enter your Apple ID password to disable the Activation Lock, then tap again to confirm the unpairing.

Your phone will try to create a backup of your watch after your unpair the device. You can use this backup to set up your new Apple Watch if you decide to upgrade your device.

2. Clean and Dry Your Watch

Next, we recommend cleaning your Apple Watch to ensure it's presentable for the selling process. Steer clear of abrasive materials like cleaning products, soaps, compressed air and external heat sources — these can damage your device. Instead, follow the steps below when cleaning your Apple Watch:

  1. Turn off your watch and remove it from the charger. Remove the band as well.
  2. Wipe your Apple Watch gently with a soft, lint-free and nonabrasive cloth. Lightly dampen this cloth with fresh water if desired. Remember not to use soap or any other cleaning product.
  3. Dry your Apple Watch with a soft lint-free cloth, including the back crystal.

You can also clean your Apple Watch band if necessary. This process can vary depending on the type of band you have:

  • Leather band: Wipe the leather band with a lint-free cloth. You can dampen the cloth lightly if desired — however, do not soak the leather band in water as it isn't water resistant. Air dry the band thoroughly before attaching it to the watch. Keep it out of high temperatures, high humidity and direct sunlight.
  • Solo loop or sports band: Wipe the band with a lint-free cloth, lightly dampened if desired. Hypoallergenic hand soap is safe for cleaning these types of bands. Dry the band with a cloth before attaching it to your Apple Watch.
  • Other bands, buckles and closures: Wipe the band with a lint-free cloth, lightly dampening it if necessary. Once again, dry it with a cloth before you attach it to the watch.

3. Package Your Apple Watch

Finally, you'll need to package the watch carefully to prevent damage during transit. If you're selling the Apple Watch only, you can use the original packaging if you still have it. You can also cover it with packaging paper for additional protection. 

If you're shipping other products with your device, make sure the watch is packaged securely so it isn't loose in the box. As we mentioned earlier, we'll provide packaging instructions with your offer to simplify this process.
