I’ve seen the screen replacement program for series 2 & 3 Apple watches.
Has anyone used it?
I just had a massive crack form in my series 3 cellular I don’t recall anything hitting it but was gardening.

Wondering if anyone has had luck.

I used it to fix my Series 4 but I had applecare +. It cost me $74 plus tax. I know where I broke it. I was in the locker room after a workout and took it off to take a shower. It slipped out of my hand hit the wall then the tile floor. While it kept on working the broken screen had sharp pieces of glass sticking up.

The turnaround was fast - three days and back. I am sure they just exchanged it as I noticed the one they sent back had a better microphone.

Lisa.

When you look at the edge of the glass carefully from each side, can you see any separation where it is pushing up from the edge? If so, that might indicate damage from a swelling battery that is pushing up from below and thus caused the crack.
