    Apple can look up the transaction where you purchased it from and what store. Assuming you're within your 14 days, you should still be able to return your Apple Watch.

    Where did you buy it from? I'm not sure if you can buy the Edition from anywhere other than the Apple Store. I think they can look up the transactions in their system. Also, if you have your email with Apple, they usually email you a receipt.

    How did you pay for it? If you paid for it with a credit card, check your statement. You might have to call your CC company to get a detailed receipt.

    You can actually purchase it at Best Buy it's the only known retail store to carry the model since Apple Store are so limited and I paid cash for it while on vacation in Tampa

    Paying in cash could be a problem here. Do you have a Best Buy account? If you did, you could reprint your receipt.

    Otherwise, you really have no proof that you even bought it. Best Buy could track the serial number and verify which store it was purchased from. They might even be able to go back to the security videos to confirm that it was you who bought it. The problem is that they don't have any incentive to help you.

    Hopefully, you have a best buy account that you scanned when you bought the watch. Good luck.

    You need to be talking to Best Buy. They are the only one's that know.

    The "cash" could be a problem.

    You're pretty much SOL. Never pay cash for anything that expensive.

    You didn't mention Best Buy in your original post. I would contact them directly. I'm not sure what they would be able to do. Likely not much. If it's sealed, you could resell it to gain back revenue from it.

    Try EBay, there are a lot of people on their. Swappa is another online venue to sell. Assuming your Watch is sealed as you stated, then you shouldn't have a problem selling your Watch. You may not receive exactly what you paid for it, but there is a much wider audience online to sell it.

    Also, Macrumors has a market place forum as well.
