    Cost of out-of-warranty Apple Watch Sport repairs drops to $199




    As of this week, the Apple Watch is not only cheaper to buy, but also to repair in the event that it's broken without an AppleCare+ warranty, with a new cost of $199 per incident.

    Previously, it cost $229 to repair the Apple Watch Sport when the unit is out of warranty. Battery service for an out-of-warranty unit runs $79.

    Repair pricing is unchanged for repairs of the stainless steel Apple Watch ($329) and the gold Apple Watch Edition ($2,800). The warranty cost changes were spotlighted on Friday by MacRumors.

    U.S. AppleCare+ warranty plans are typically $49 for the Sport, $59 for the mid-tier Watch, and $1,500 for the Edition. Apple also sells plans that cover both a Watch and an iPhone, which are priced at $149, $169, and $1,600 depending on the model.

    The combo plans can apply to undamaged iPhones up to six months old, whereas a regular AppleCare+ iPhone plan forces buyers to pick up coverage within 60 days.

    The Sport and steel Watch AppleCare+ plans extend warranties to two years, while the Edition plan extends coverage to three. These also sharply reduce the cost of accidental damage, lowering service fees to $69, $79, or $1,000, depending on the model. AppleCare+ subscribers can also get Express Replacement at no extra charge ó Apple will send a package to return the original Watch, and ship out a replacement unit in two to three business days.
