    My Apple Watch Series 4 fell off my dresser today and cracked the entire back. The screen and case are fine but the back is pretty rough. I can still wear it but I'm worried the heart rate tracking will be messed up. I just purchased AppleCare+ for it but I'm wondering if I should get it fixed now or just wait? Anyone got any thoughts? Much appreciated.

    See PHOTO.

    Just use it a few days and then take it for repairs after.

    I only get two fixes though. Any idea what the best way to tell if my heart sensor is messed up?

    Take your pulse and compare it to heart rate monitor.

    I would be more concerned with the broken back cutting you or exposing watch interior to moisture

    See if it reads your heart rate...?

    It does. I just hope it's still accurate like before.

    im guessing it should be fine since the cracks not near the edge, but i'd def get it fixed. the chances of u needing another fix is slim to none so dont worry about that.... unless ur a klutz. i never buy apple care unless it's a laptop.

    Yeah I'm debating between now or later because this was a freak accident. Just sucks because I just paid $460 for the watch and now I'm shelling out $160 for AppleCare and a replacement.

    Well, I mean, you can take your pulse manually.
