    I have been getting a lot of erratic heartrate reads lately on my Series 0 apple watch, and my watch face is getting a bit beat up. I notice the back where the sensor is is also a bit beaten up. I got Applecare+ and am thinking about using it.

    I'm wondering if anyone has used it after the Series 1/2 launch, and if by any chance they got a nice surprise and happened to get a Series 1 back from Apple, since everything is the same except processor? I just am wondering if they are still stocking Series 0 for service purposes or if they are consolidating on Series 1.

    It doesn't matter in the end - I will need to use my applecare either way, but I'm a little curious as to what I might expect.

    Is there a way to use apple care for a replacement without paying the extra fee? :)

    I tried to use my AppleCare+ when I fell and scratched my stainless steel case and screen, but I think they fell bad because my finger was broken. They sent it off, but I got a replacement watch for free.

    AppleCare+ gives you 2 years of warranty coverage. There is only a fee if you are using an accidental damage incident. If it's something caused by manufacturer defect, then it's an "in-warranty" swap.

    You will get a series 0 until they run out of them.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Slightly sad, but not unexpected.
