About a week ago my Gen1 SS 42mm stopped responding to swipes. I have to press really hard if I want it to respond. I took it to an apple store but they told me basically what I was expecting and that since it was out of warranty I would need to send it in and it would most likely be the $229 fee to have it repaired. I told the apple store employee I had heard of people getting newer watches back but he told me not to bet on it and that he advised I put that money towards a newer model. I told him I didn't want to send it in at the time because it would be about 2 weeks to get it back and also since I was able to tell time with it I didn't want to part with it but now I'm debating whether or not to send it in to see about it being replaced with a newer model. What has the experiences been with getting a newer model due to out of warranty repairs? Is it wise not to try to bet on getting something newer this way?
