So I was looking into trading In my Apple watch series 3 to offset the cost on series 4. But I also have an older series 0 can I trade in both to Apple to offset the cost on one series 4 purchase? Also do I need to trade in the band that came with the watch?

I believe you can trade in as many as you want, they will issue gift cards that you can use to buy a new watch, and you only need to give back the watch body, no band or charger

I'm looking to trade in several watches also. I have a series 0 in stainless steel but all I can get for it on trade in is $25 not worth it in my opinion. I can get $125 for my series 2 in stainless and I might just go for that if I can keep the charger and bands. If I try to sell them on ebay I would have to pony up a charger and band so it's a wash there. I like having extra chargers so I can just pack one to use on travel.

Wow $25? I knew the resale value on the SS was terrible but that is just sad.

Yeah used watches don't really help offset the cost.

A Series 3 SS is worth $250 to Apple and that's on the high end for trade ins at most places.

I have the lowest model series 3 with cellular and its trade in is 225. Id do it but its better to trade it into verizon who will give me the credit on the spot and allow me to pay for the watch over 6 bills.

The Apple store app says buy a new watch and they will just credit my account when I send them the old one. My series 3 they offered $225. My series 0 only $25. Not quite sure if it’s worth trading in for $25.

Is 225 even worth trading in a series 3 with lte ? Do I keep it as a back up or just take the 225 ? I’m scared that a year or so this will be 25 also .

Got a link to this info? I might do the same but I don't see it on their website.

Thanks!

I'm in the same boat.....probably will trade in the LTE 3 and continue to keep the 0 as my fitness-only watch.
