    Hey guys,
    I'm from Portugal but I bought my apple watch in the US I still have a couple of days left to upgrade the plan to Apple Care+, which I wish to do.
    However I'm new to Apple care+ and I don't understand some things that I hope you guys can clear things out:

    1) Should I buy the Apple Care+ from the Apple US or Apple PT? Or it doesn't matter?

    2) If I buy from the US does the Apple care+ warranty works in Europe?

    3) When I buy it from Apple website will I receive it in physical form to an Adress to digital to my email/apple account?

    Much appreciated

    1. & 2. AppleCare+ is global so regardless of where you purchase it from, it works anywhere in the world while the manufacturer's warranty by itself works only in the country it was purchased from.

    3. I think it's usually just an email. It'd be electronically attached to your Watch's serial number and they could pull out the coverage details when needed. You don't need to submit any proof of coverage should you take it in for repair.

    If you buy an Apple Watch with AppleCare at the moment of purchase it'll be automatically enrolled. You will get an email stating your device is enrolled. AppleCare, as the poster above me said, is global, hence you can walk into any Apple Store and it'll be honored.

    Thank you for your help. Now I just have one problem the country where I am from doesn't sell Apple Care+, so I was going to buy it from Apple US website but it requires an US card which I don't have.

    Anyone has any suggestions?
