    I got my Apple Watch Sport in White yesterday. it was the first time I actually saw one in person and I really like it. as I haven't seen the space grey yet which I have also on order I was wondering if anyone has experience with the Apple return policy or ever run into trouble. I will only consider returning it if the space grey arrives within the next 12 days and I like it more. (the next apple store is over two hours away so I can't make up my mind the easy way)

    now let's say I do get the space grey within my 14 days return window and decide to return the white sport after all. do u think I will run into trouble for using it for about 10ish days? like could they be like "we noticed u used the watch for more than xy charging cycles which tells us u didn't just "try" it on before sending it back" or whatever. I am so paranoid that I turned it off after a few hours yesterday so I wouldn't have to charge it as often. I also try to keep the box and everything as good as new. the only problem is getting the charging cable to fit properly in the box as before. it is kind of a bitch lol

    so in short, can I use it as I please in my every day life and they don't care as long as it isn't broken and scratched up or do I have to be careful what I do with it and for how long I use it?

    Apple are generally pretty good about open box returns unless you've damaged the product. They won't scrutinise charge cycles etc.

    use it, if you don't like it before 14 days take it back. How could you know its not for you if you don't use it?

    apple are cool :)

    As other have mentioned, the 14 day policy pretty much lets you return the item back for any reason as long as you haven't damaged the watch.

    okay that's great to hear, cuz as I read it the 14 days return policy was initially established to give online buyers the chance to "inspect and try on the item the same way they would in-store". those two don't really compare :D half hour in-store vs two weeks at home

    As long as you do not damage it, you can do what you like in the 14 day. Just be careful not to damage though, treat it like a car test drive :)

    Or sell it if they won't take it back. You should at least get your money back or maybe make a buck or two.

    Personally, I sold my SG in favor aof a white sport. I prefer the silver aluminum.

    Apple is pretty lenient on returns within reason. Of course it has to be returnable and not user damaged. Or else oow repairs or ac+

    Forgive my ignorance. Is there no re-stocking fee?
