Thank you simieski1 - i hope that is typical and true for all the watches. I stand corrected in that the battery can be replaced (by Apple) - looks like about 82 pounds if out of warranty which is possibly fine, if thats every 4+ y. https://support.apple.com/en-gb/watch/repair/service/pricing
I don’t agree sorry. I’m still using my first gen Apple Watch having charged it every night I’ve had it with the official charger. No sign of any significant battery degradation. I think Apple have really cracked power management on these modern Apple devices.
seriously: what is "refurbished"? They took it out of __a__ box, turned it on, it works: sell it? The really big issue is battery. These devices likely have a 2-4y battery life. So if this thing is 3y old, the battery isnt going to last. An apple watch without a battery is like, err, an apple watch with a battery. (Almost useless!) [I have an apple watch, and if apple ever seriously understood security and user friendliness, then its not obvious] But again: refurbished is a synonym for "no idea how long it will run for, and we wont be in business by the time you find a problem with it". (I know, not all refurbs are like that but grade C is the same as grade Z).
Grade C is obvious scratches or dings. It’ll be shoddy condition.
grade c makes me feel like this thing is gonna be covered in scratches
