    I pre-ordered the 42mm Stainless Steel w/ BSB and got it delivered 2 weeks ago. I've been so busy since moving to a new house I haven't even opened the FedEx box yet. I am wondering if I should just send it back, even though I haven't opened it. I am curious about the device, but I do switch back and forth between my iPhone and Android, and I am afraid it won't be of much use when I am using my Galaxy S6 Edge. Plus, I have a collection of nice Swiss watches I normally wear...I think I know the answer, just send it back, but something in the back of my mind wants me to open it and try it.

    Send it back. If you wanted it enough you'd have opened it by now, and you're about to run out of time to get a decent mark up on it.

    Really? This I didn't know. I thought you only had 14 days to return it? I didn't know they send you a shipping box to "extend" the return window.

    I don't know about the sending a box part, but once you initial a return you do have additional days to return it.

    In my case, I initiated the return just before the 14 day deadline and Apple emailed me a UPS return shipping label... this extended the return date by a further 10+ days for me. I actually sold the watch since then and just contacted Apple to let them know that I had changed my mind, they had no issues with that. Hope this helps.

    I mean if you haven't opened it yet. It says you don't really care too much about it. I would find time to open it up.

    Sell it on eBay or craigslist or somewhere and get a good bit of extra money.

    Maybe they just send u a label instead of a full box, but the point is you will have 10-14 more days to ship it out and decide

    if you call in and request a return label, they'll email you the pre-paid label and you got 14 days to ship it (+14 days)

    Depends on your asking price. Got to remember the loyal fans that had to have the watch day one were paying top dollar for them. Most of them have received their watch of choice. So the value has dropped off. I've seen 42mm SG go for 500-600. At launch it was over 1k. So keep that in mind. But you might get lucky. ;)

    Open it and play around. Don't think you're doing Apple any favours by sending back a sealed box. They will still open it to make sure the same watch is inside

    How much? The values have dropped off but I sold a 42mm Space Gray yesterday for $700.

    I got an offer for $700, but after fees, it doesn't make sense, because I would make a whole $16, not worth the hassle. I would need to make at least $100 after fees to make it worthwhile, otherwise I will just send it back to Apple.

    Considering your situation (minus moving part), surprised you even bothered to order one.

    If you really switch between an iPhone and Android phone so frequently, then I would think a Pebble watch would get more use.
    Although if you're on wifi regularly, the Apple Watch will still have some limited use. You could even connect it to your S6's hotspot.

    Yes, it doesn't make sense to sell for less than $900 on eBay. Even then it is questionable.

    Have you tried Craigslist?

    It's Apple so I bet you in due time Samsung will bite. Oh wait, that's a different topic. ;)

    Do the honourable thing and either donate it to the needy (See June Delivery date thread), or welcome the opputunity for a Craigslist murder.

    I have until the 30th to "ship it" according to the shipping label I got last week for it. Might just open it now as I don't see the point in not if I am not selling it.
