    I have listings on ebay and swappa, is there any way to get more views to the listings? I'm trying to sell this asap.

    The only way to sell ASAP is to drop your price low enough. How much are you asking for and is it the high-end link bracelet or the low-end black sport band model?

    Too high. Best Buy was selling that model for $399 brand new. Accessories don't really help with boosting the sale price.

    Even lower with BB open box items. Craigslist can get you more than ebay/swappa if you like it and have some patience. maybe $300- 350 but people are not paying the premium for the more expensive used Watches right now... summer vacations, new watch out in Fall, cheaper used Sport versions... plus people won't pay more for extras..
    People will pay more for the SS + Link bands but only half retail which was up to $1200.

    still, used market is soft for the premium SS Watches. you might get $400 if totally complete, mint, and with a chunk of warranty left ..

    Doesn't matter. Even that contributes to a downward pressure on the overall prices, especially for the models that were on sale.

    If you want to sell fast, you have no choice but to drop your price. Otherwise, you can probably find a buyer for $500 if you wait long enough (but not too long).

    Best Buy has new one right now for $399 - 42mm SS with red band... $200 off.
    I see your sale post and pix, nice set and watch looks new. any warranty?
    good luck, you never know, but you can't be in a rush in your price range..

    this watch is new it has most of its warranty left, I'm just going to exclude the accessories and try to sell it for $400. Ill sell the accessories separately or something or keep them for apple watch 2.

    Yes, that's better. Bundling with accessories rarely gets you more $$$ but makes it easier to sell given the same price ($400).

    I don't think dropping just $50 is enough. Better to sell it sans accessories for $400 or less if the OP wants to sell fast.

    ok, $425, I was thinking Craigslist, they always expect you to consider lower offers.
    Use ebay and you lose 13% off the top. Craigslist is free if you survive...

    I just bought a space black ss with black sport band and black milenese band for $450 off swappa.com. You will get less for yours due to what it comes with.

    Why? Mine comes with a black Milanese loop and a charging dock, more than yours had.

    Not if he got the authentic Apple black Milanese loop, which retails for $199. You have the el cheapo black Milanese loop from Amazon.

    Mine was an authentic Milanese Loop from Apple not a cheapo copy. Yours is not worth near as much as mine was. Like others have said.

    https://swappa.com/listing/SHL836/view was the swappa sale.

    I just took it back to Best Buy forgot I was an elite plus member so I had 45 days to return vs the 15 I thought. Got $468 back and $75 for accessories.

    Agreed, return it to the retailer is always my first option - beats trying to sell it.

    OP, glad you got your money back.
