I have a series 1 Apple Watch, as I was putting the watch back on, after clearing the metal detector, at work...I dropped it. The Watch landed face first on a tile floor from about 48”.



I did not have Apple care, and Apple won’t fix them. Anyone know of any decent third party companies that will replace the screen for me? I am all thumbs, I can’t even get a screen protector on straight.

I have already taken the opportunity to upgrade to a series 3, and bought Apple care for the replacement. But I would like to get the series 1 fixed and either keep it as a spare/back up or pass it down to my son if he wants it.

It says they will replace the watch, and charge 200 bucks for the replacement. I can find brand new on eBay for the same or a few dollars more. Since I did just spend a bit for the series three, I was hoping for something a little more cost efficient.

I see now. Screen damage = replacement.
