So I picked up a Series 1 Apple Watch back in late March for $209 from Best Buy. A later Wal-Mart sale brought that price down to $179, prior to tax obviously. I'm currently debating whether or not I should spring for Applecare and if its even worthwhile on my Series 1 purchase. Now I'm a staunch defender of Applecare typically and it's saved my butt twice in the past, most significantly with a 2008 iMac which up and died completely--Apple replaced it wholesale with a brand new 2010 iMac. I've purchased Applecare on every Apple computer and iPhone I've owned going all the way back to 2003. As far as I can tell Applecare is $50, and if any physical damage occurs the repair fee is $70 on top of that, meaning that a broken watch technically costs $120 to repair, just $60 shy of what I paid for the watch in the first place. At that price point I'm rather tempted to just buy a second watch and stash it away as a backup. (Especially if they happen to drop lower than $179, which has happened in the past.) Any thoughts on the matter? If it was a Series 3 watch Applecare is a no-brainer as those have never been below the $340 price point (in 42mm) as far as I can tell, but in my current situation I'm not so sure.
