Answered by Michael Wilson

You can add AppleCare+ to your Apple Watch after making the initial purchase. However, it’s important to note that the eligibility and time frame for purchasing AppleCare+ may vary depending on the country or region you are in.

In most countries, including the United States, AppleCare+ can be added within 60 days of your device purchase. This provides customers with a window of opportunity to decide whether they want to purchase additional coverage for their Apple Watch.

I recently had a personal experience where I purchased an Apple Watch and decided to add AppleCare+ after a few weeks of using the device. I found the process to be quite straightforward and convenient. I simply visited the Apple Store, where a representative guided me through the process of purchasing AppleCare+ for my Apple Watch. They explained the coverage details, cost, and benefits of the extended warranty.

To add AppleCare+ to your Apple Watch, you typically need to visit an authorized Apple retailer or the Apple Store. You can find the nearest Apple Store location on the Apple website or by using the Apple Store app. They will assist you in purchasing AppleCare+ for your device.

Alternatively, if you prefer to handle things online, you can also purchase AppleCare+ directly from the Apple website. By visiting the AppleCare+ page, you can select your Apple Watch model and follow the instructions to add the coverage to your device.

When adding AppleCare+, you will need to provide the serial number of your Apple Watch and may be asked to verify the device’s purchase date. It’s important to have this information readily available to ensure a smooth process.

AppleCare+ offers extended warranty coverage for your Apple Watch, including up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage, subject to a service fee. It also provides technical support from Apple experts, giving you peace of mind and additional assistance should any issues arise with your device.

While the specific details and availability of AppleCare+ may vary depending on your location, in most countries and regions, you can add AppleCare+ to your Apple Watch within 60 days of your initial purchase. Whether you prefer to visit an Apple Store or handle the process online, Apple provides options to make it convenient for you to purchase this extended warranty coverage for your device.
