The Apple Watch is more than just a watch. As you’d expect from Apple, it’s a helpful device in many ways. It keeps track of your health and safety, helps you achieve your fitness goals, gives directions in new locations and provides hours of entertainment. It packs a lot of power for a tiny device you can wrap around your wrist and take anywhere.
Apple is known to embrace and push the limits of what’s possible with new technology. The Apple Watch is no exception. While it was launched as a fashion accessory at the same time as the iPhone 6, its useful tech features made Time Magazine’s list of the best 25 inventions of 2014. Over the years since then, Apple has refined its approach to the Apple Watch, adding further features and pushing the device to new capabilities. Now the Apple Watch is making the most of advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) with its new ChatGPT assistant Petey.
Is it expensive? Not necessarily. Buy a refurbished Apple Watch from OzMobiles’ range of refurbished smartwatches, and you can save hundreds of dollars. If you’re wondering ‘what is a refurbished Apple Watch?’ and how it differs from a regular second hand Apple Watch, this article is for you. We’re here to answer any questions about Apple Watches, including what they are, why you should be interested and where you can get one.
What is a Refurbished Apple Watch?
For starters, an Apple Watch is a smartwatch. In a simple sense, it can be described as a wristwatch that also functions as a computer-like device. It tells the time, but it has many more features in store. And it’s as light, portable and easy to carry around as devices get!
Following its launch, it didn’t take the Apple Watch long to become the leader in the smartwatch industry, with a market share of over 50%. In 2022, it sold more than 50 million units. Apple releases a new watch every year, often on the same day the company has unveiled its latest flagship iPhone models. In 2016, it became more focused on fitness (a trend the company has continued), and in 2017, it gave users the power to control their iPhones remotely with their Apple Watches. In 2018, it introduced ground-breaking safety features to look after the well-being of its users.
A refurbished Apple Watch is more than simply a used Apple Watch. Refurbished devices are pre-owned devices that have been thoroughly checked and tested to ensure they meet certain quality standards before being put up for resale. The reseller has erased all the previous owner’s data, run background checks to ensure the device isn’t lost or stolen and ensured everything works as it should.
Smartwatches, smartphones, laptops, tablets and other devices can all be sold refurbished. While refurbished devices are usually graded according to their conditions, many are pretty close to new apart from maybe the odd dent or scratch here or there. Ex-demo refurbished devices, which have only been taken out of their boxes to be displayed in stores, tend to look new and be in fantastic condition.
Refurbished devices are better for the environment, better for your bank balance and come with warranties included. When you buy a refurbished Apple Watch, you don’t have to take your chances like you would buying a used Apple Watch from a stranger online.
Why should you buy a refurbished Apple Watch? It turns out there are plenty of good reasons. If you need any convincing that buying a second hand Apple Watch refurbished is the way to go, here are some of the features and benefits – plus a quick look and how much it will cost.
Fantastic fitness tracking
With the Workout app, you can track the time you spend exercising, your heart rate, and the calories you burn – and that’s just for starters. The popular activity rings remind you when it’s time to exercise, show you your daily activity and let you challenge other Apple Watch users to a little friendly competition. If you also have an iPhone, Apple’s Fitness+ has 12 different kinds of workouts, including High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Yoga, Pilates and Core.
The Apple Watch is always looking out for your health and could even save your life! It can detect an irregular or unusually high or low heart rate even when resting, so you know when to take action and seek medical attention. It can detect if you’ve been in a car crash and immediately provide emergency services with your location. It can track your blood oxygen, sleeping patterns and temperature so you can monitor your health, but all your details will remain private.
It’s easy to use
You can text and make calls without your phone, even overseas. You can easily compose text messages using tools like dictation, emojis and Scribble.
Music on the go
With Apple Music, you have access to over 100 million songs to listen to while you’re out and about. Not to mention a wide range of Apple Podcasts and audiobooks available.
Access to thousands of apps
With the touch of a button, you can download countless apps, and you don’t even have to take out your iPhone.
When you buy a refurbished Apple Watch, you can expect to pay between $300 to $1300, depending on factors such as make, model and condition. One thing’s for sure, though: you can save hundreds of dollars while avoiding the risks that usually accompany buying a second hand Apple Watch. If paying the price of a used Apple Watch but reaping the benefits of a new one is right up your alley, the solution lies in refurbished Apple Watches.
