The Apple Watch Could Soon Support Third-Party Watch Faces

This is a rare problem, but Apple will fix the watch if it occurs.

Don't worry if your Apple Watch Series 2 suddenly won't turn on because you might be eligible for a free fix by Apple.

But there's a (big) caveat: the gratis maintenance service is in place strictly for devices suffering from battery issues, according to a leaked internal document.

Repairs are limited to the 42mm Apple Watch Series 2 models, including Sport, Edition, Hermès, and Nike+ models. Moreover, any 38mm variant of the Apple Watch is also not eligible to apply.

On Apple's support page on its website, it says that "many issues can be resolved" by restarting the Watch, which can be done by holding the side button, sliding power off on the screen, then once again holding the side button to switch it on.




Apple has released a new service policy regarding the Apple watch Series 2.

Since the Apple Watch's original release in 2015, nearly all of the device's personalization has been tied to the swappable wrist bands.

The reasons behind Apple Watch Series 2 not turning on for some users is unclear at this point and the memo does not shed enough light on it as well. In other words, customers can't just request a battery swap if nothing is actually wrong with their Apple Watch Series 2. It is also important to note that the length of time for the service is three years from the time of purchase.

Customers have three years from the original date of purchase to take advantage of the free fix, after which they'll have to pay for the service (£82.44 in the UK).
