    If you plan on being with sprint for 2years I don’t see any issue paying 0% interest for 2 years. I think the LTE service is worth the monthly fee.
    Would recommend apple care.

    You are wanting to buy a second hand watch from someone and the watch is still on the person's payment plan?

    I would not take over someone's payment plan, much less be tied to Sprint for two years.

    If you want a watch with LTE service on your carrier, open up a new account for the watch on your carrier. If your carrier is Sprint, I would have the guy pay it off before selling to you. And make sure you have proof in writing from the carrier of such.

    The only way I'd do that is meet them at a Sprint Store and have them pay it off as soon as you hand them the cash. Anything short of that, I'd avoid it like it has the plague..

    Some people have had problems getting LTE service one another carrier once the watch has had service on a different carrier. I would check with T-Mobile before doing anything.

    Is the watch the SS model or the sport model?

    Will look into it. It’s the sport model.

    $300 dollars for the sport model is not what I would call a great deal, especially with it being used.

    Get the watch from T-Mobile and do the interest free payment plan. That is my advice.

    If the watch is in great shape and can be activated, then $129 off (30%) is a pretty good deal, I'd say.
