I have two watch delivered and only one had an email of the proof of coverage.

I feel that Apple's site is off at the moment as the order still shows as Shipped and not Delivered like it should yet.

Mine shows as delivered, I’ve just not had my Apple Care+ email yet.
I would give it another day first. I received my email for one of the watches this morning before the watch was even delivered. I would contact Apple for proof of coverage if I do not receive it by Monday.
[doublepost=1537572284][/doublepost]I also checked and the one I received proof of is already linked to AppleCare under the Coverage Check page.
The one I haven't received yet is not yet applied.

I bought AppleCare for my S4 yesterday over the phone after i didn’t have time to do so when picking up my watch from the store.


I got the email coverage email at 6am this morning.

I’m in the US and have this issue. I was told by Apple that if you have LTE it may take 72hours to register ( something to do with carrier). Check in a few days

I don’t get what LTE has to do with Apple Applying the Apple Care + I purchased when I ordered my Watch last week, but I’ll call them Monday if there is still no change.

Usually I have my Apple Care certificate before I even receive the Phone/Watch.

Don’t ask me why it makes a difference? I was just told that it does. I have a case open and they will check back in the next few days

The Apple Care I purchased with my Watch still hasn’t been applied and no proof of coverage email.

I spoke to Apple on Saturday about this - is an issue at their end. They expect to be sorted early this week.

The applecare+ Covers only breakage of the screen or even deep scratches? Any personal opinion if it really worth the 89£?

I don’t think £45 per year is that bad given it’s attached to your wrist and therefore at risk of small knocks during day to day wear.

I work in an office and still see it as worthwhile for a £529 Watch.

I have to agree with the above, I'd hate to knock my new £529 watch and damage the screen and so for £45 a year ( £3.70 a week ) really isn't anything to complain about.

Indeed! I’m currently not in the uk if I buy the AppleCare online is there any chance to ask me to go to an Apple store? The AppleCare+ covers deep scratches as well or just breakage of the screen?

I'm not buying Apple Care i think it's waste of money, i will use standard 1 year warranty. The screen protector + case will last me much longer.

The downside of that is you’ve got a screen protector and case covering your watch, which detracts considerably from the user experience.
Yes, you are right however I don't have the choice really. You know i really want to have AW4 SS but the price put me off, therefore I will upgrade yearly obviously...

I bought my watch on Saturday and didn't get AC+ at the time. I called on Saturday and registered over the phone. I got some emails straight after, and received my proof on monday. AC+ is worth it for sure. I've had my iPad Pro replaced twice on AC+ and also had my Series 2 watch replaced a week before the AC+ ran out due to a busted microphone. The other good thing about AC+ is Express Replacements.... no relying on having to visit a store and getting a bad Genius you can't convince you have a problem with your device.

Apples care does not cover for scratches that do not affect function of the watch. Check terms and conditions. Only accidental breakages. Don’t expect to get a new watch if it is scratched.

I don’t mean cosmetic damage but for example the topic starter show us a photo of a very big scratch that possible affects the way the watch works. Is this considered a ours cosmetic damage? If yes What stop someone from hit the watch one more time to break completely the screen then in order to exchange it with the small fee?
