Just curious if anyone had any luck selling their space black apple watch with link band and for what price? I have been trying to sell mine and I feel I have it posted for a fair price but all I get are super low offers.

I think your problem is going to be that most people who want one at a cheap price can find it on sale somewhere. Also people want it new a lot of times if it's going to be a gift. The discount you are offering from a new product probably isn't a big enough difference to warrant someone not just buying it new. I check on eBay all the time to see if I can find one to upgrade my sport to the stainless model but the prices aren't low enough for me to warrant not just buying it from Apple.

Thats a fair assessment, even though I really enjoyed the link band if I would do it all over again I would just go with sports band.

CL is notorious for getting slammed with low ball offers. If you don't want to deal with them, then list on eBay and it'll eventually sell at the market value due to the bidding war (but even that doesn't prevent people from emailing you with low ball offers in hope that you'd stop the auction).

I have it posted on Amazon for 695.00, I believe it is the lowest on there at the moment.

Thanks for the suggestions to everyone else, i will definitely try swappa
Sounds high if it's used. It's the most expensive SS model and will have the worst resale value relative to the base Sport models. Used iPhones are basically half the original retail prices after one year and the AW1 is now at the one year mark.

Thanks for the reply...looks like I will need to consider dropping the price, would you say 600 is more of a fair price?

How much do you want your link assuming 42mm.

I went through a season of considering selling my Apple Watch SS. I ended up deciding to just keep it and see what happens. This is exactly why. I just don't want to lose a ton on the sale. I have a Milanese Loop band and Classic Buckle and an extra sports strap, all OEM. There's no way I'd get a reasonable price selling them.

I've actually started enjoying my watch more again and wear it every weekday. I go back to my Omega on the weekend.

most buyers of the high end Watch (link bracelet) aren't bargain buyers and buy new. Sure some buyers want it used but for bargain basement. For the wear I've seen on the black link the new price is a money grab imo. Best Buys heavy discounts and lower demand for the year old watch will not bring a big payback on the higher priced models.
