    So I recently bought a watch secondhand off EBay. It came with AppleCare. How can I make sure that the AppleCare is listed on my watch? I understand it's tied to the serial number, but I want it to be listed in my support profile.

    Selfsolve.apple.com and enter serial number

    Be aware though. The seller could contact apple and possibly remove apple care to get themeselves a pro-rated refund. Not sure if there is a way to protect against that.

    True, the seller can cancel AppleCare+ at anytime unless he transfers ownership. He would have to contact Apple to do that. :cool:

    Ya. After looking into it it looks like givmeabrek is right. The previous owner has to contact apple and unregister the watch. Then you have to contact apple and register it under your apple id.

    The previous owner does not have to call to un-register. You just have to call Apple support to change the registration and know the name of the previous owner.

    Best practice is to have the seller transfer AppleCare+ in front of you on the phone if feasible. Otherwise doing it all online via email is at your own risk.

    They will need your name, address, phone number and an email address.
