    I want to get the SS Apple watch so I'm selling my sport watch
    It has apple care , can the new owner use the apple care without my info ? If he has the watch

    The AppleCare is tied to the device's serial number.

    Also, at least with the iPad and iPhone, you can call and get a refund on the unused portion of the AppleCare.

    I want to sell it to someone desperate who can't wait for $600 on Craigslist

    ----------

    So the new owner can use the Apple care if he ever needs to ?

    I assume we're talking AppleCare Plus here? If so then yes, the new owner will be able to use it since it's tied to the serial number, not the owner. You can also call Apple and get a prorated refund if you choose.

    Is $600 for the 42 SG with Apple care too much or not enough ?
    At this time

    ----------

    Yes the $50 for Apple care

    If you call apple they will refund your applecare+ cost, less a pro-rated amount. In your case you will probably lose $5.

    This. You are better getting a refund. You will not get an extra $50 in the secondhand market.

    I sold 3 and I had bought Applecare+ on all 3 (thought I was keeping them).

    I cancelled all 3 Applecare+ and got 100% refund on all 3. No reason for it to be prorated. (EDIT: If done within first 30 days)

    Applecare+ does not "go with the watch" without a call to Applecare+ to transfer. That is fact.

    It's not bad for cash. You will probably get around that or less now on eBay (after all the ridiculous fees). Had you sold it two weeks ago, it would've been a nice down payment on an Edition... Nevertheless, it nearly pays for the upgrade for you so I would go for it.

    Hi,

    Apple Care + is linked to the device by the serial number. It is not linked to the owners account. So no transfer is needed or even possible.

    +1 Agree.

    I work for Apple service centre, and does not matter who registered the AppleCare its tied to the watch serial only.

    The second user (Buyer) gets the full AppleCare due to buying the watch, seller does not have to transfer nothing.

    Not many companies like Apple which are tied to serial, but its the truth.

    Oh, and they cannot get any details from it either, Apple not allowed to give any details out to anyone, only your receipt for the sale with you details on is the only way the buyer can get your details, which you would have to personally give him/her.

    100% wrong. Here is a cut and paste from the Applecare agreement which you have obviously never read:


    10. Transfer of Plan
    Subject to the restrictions set forth below, you may make a one-time permanent transfer of all of your rights under the Plan to another party, provided that: (a) you transfer to the other party the original proof of purchase, the Plan’s Confirmation, the Plan’s printed materials and this service contract; (b) you notify Apple of the transfer by sending, faxing or e-mailing notice of transfer to Apple Inc., ATTN: Agreement Administration, MS: 217-AC, 2511 Laguna Blvd, Elk Grove, CA 95758, U.S., fax number 916-405-3655 or agmts_transfer@apple.com, respectively, and (c) the other party accepts the terms of this service contract. When notifying Apple of the transfer, you must provide the Plan Agreement Number, the serial number of the Covered Equipment , and the name, address, telephone number and email address of the new owner.

    Hi Friend,

    You are correct I have not read the fine print of the Apple Care agreement. I was basing it on my experience getting Apple Care warranty service on an iPad I had purchased from someone who never transfered AC to me. And service my mom got on a iPhone i bought her with Apple Care attached.

    Have a beautiful day!

    Sincerely,
    B

    I was referring to your statement "no transfer is needed or even possible"
    Emphasis added.

    The OP has a 14 day return period with Apple on the Watch. Counting today it's been 15 days since launch. If he's just going to upgrade to a better watch I'd bet they would allow him a day or two past the 14 days to do an exchange. Why is he going through Craigslist?

    It does appear the return period is 14 business days, not calendar days (a number of people were comparing dates from their receipts).

    Maybe he wants to make a few bucks?

    Why are you talking about the OP like he/she doesn't exist?

    Although you CAN transfer it, theres no point, you can buy any Apple product second hand and use the Apple care in full without transferring.

    They don't ask anything when bringing in for service, they just see apple care and deal with it.

    There is no way the second user can ring AppleCare and ask for your details too, so your details are safe.

    Edit: woops forgot to quote the previous post. Sorry about that.
    Hi,

    The Apple Care is linked to the device itself. You can go to selfsolve.apple.com and enter the serial number to check it's warranty status.

    I hope that helps!

    Nothing

    When you login with your info on the apple watch it will register in your devices on the apple site , you can see there if you have apple care on the apple watch and for how long
