Got a new Apple Watch? Now get the best price for your old one

Now that you have your shiny new Apple Watch Series 5, it’s time to make back some of the money you just spent by selling your old model. But don’t take it to the Apple Store.

Apple will offer you just a fraction of what your old Apple Watch is really worth. Make a lot more by selling yours to Cult of Mac instead.

Apple products famously hold their value well — much better than competing consumer electronics. But if you’re not careful, it’s easy to get ripped off.

Avoid Apple trade-ins

For instance, here’s what Apple currently pays for Watch trade-ins:

  • Apple Watch Series 4 — up to $110
  • Apple Watch Series 3 — up to $70
  • Apple Watch Series 2 — up to $50
  • Apple Watch Series 1 — up to $30

These are pretty shameful figures. And they don’t take into account the fact that you might end up getting even less if your old Apple Watch isn’t in pristine condition.

But there is a way you could earn a lot more — perhaps even double your money.

Sell your old Apple Watch to Cult of Mac

Cult of Mac pays a lot more for unwanted Apple Watch units, and we won’t turn you away if yours is broken and in need of repair. Here’s what you could make if you avoid the Apple Store:

  • Apple Watch Series 4 — up to $240
  • Apple Watch Series 3 — up to $110
  • Apple Watch Series 2 — up to $60
  • Apple Watch Series 1 — up to $20
  • Apple Watch Series 0 — up to $10

See? It makes no sense to sell your old Watch to Apple.

Why Cult of Mac’s buyback program is best

Sure, Apple recycles all trade-in devices in an environmentally-friendly manner. But Cult of Mac does the same.

We refurbish devices that can be sold on, and recycle those that can’t. We promise that nothing we receive will end up in landfill. What’s more, we won’t tell you where you can spend your money.

Unlike Apple, which will pay you in credit that can only be spent in the Apple Store, we pay real cash. You can spend it wherever you like.

How does the buyback program work?

Interested? Here’s how Cult of Mac’s buyback program works:

  1. You visit our buyback page and get a quote for your old Watch.
  2. We send you a box with a prepaid return label so that you can ship your Watch straight to us for free.
  3. Once we’ve received your device, we’ll issue a check that you’ll receive in around one week.

It’s that simple. And every quote we give is good for 14 days, which gives you plenty of time to get used to your new model before parting ways with its predecessor.

So, what are you waiting for? Find out how much your old Apple Watch is really worth today.

Elevated quality and protection

What truly separates this simple and elegant design is that it provides added personal safety for bike riders while hiding their Apple tracking device from sight. Simple installation and great quality! Verified operational use and without a doubt a double winner! The case does not detract from the original Apple specifications! Highly recommend it!

Love this heavy duty band

Ordered this band to match my blue Series 6. The color is spot on, and the clasp is excellent. It looks really nice on my wrist!


Clever way to add air tag to bike

Hopefully will prove a sturdy mount for a trail bike used on rough routes
