    With the Apple watch being available at Best Buy now does anybody have any information on the warranty they offer. (Better or Worse) Also could you purchase from Best Buy then buy the Apple Care+ from Apple later?

    I know nothing about Geeksquad, but if you purchase the Watch and AC+ using an Amex card, it'll mirror the standard warranty at the end of AC+, giving you three years of warranty protection. You'll get no such benefit if you go with Geeksquad, because Amex offers that only with additional service contract or extended warranty coverage provided and administered by the original manufacturer (namely Apple).

    Keeping in mind that extended warranties generate additional profits, if I get them at all I tend to get them from the original manufacturer.
